"My wood stove makes me happy"
My wood stove makes me happy. That may sound pathetic, but that wood stove gives so much intense satisfaction that it is not that exaggerated. Sure, firing the wood produces a lot of hassle, a lot of work and effort, but it's all worth it.
Well considered, that effort and that work is part of the happiness.
Civilian trammelant around wood burning
And the societal trammelant who has recently been swelling around the domestic wood because of the air pollution? The wood-burning stove must be discouraged, the Houtrook and Health Platform said in a letter to the government at the beginning of this year. The GGD Amsterdam and my own environmental protection (where I have been freelance for work for years) even advocate a ban.
It is not pleasant to be put into the environmental corner as a green citizen. But as with so many social discussions, in the case of polarization something is lost to nuances in this case. Or even all sorts of important things remain completely out of the picture. By destroying the wood-burning stove something valuable is disqualified, of which we already have so little left in today's society.
