"Wood plays a major role in combating climate change... Greater use of wood products will stimulate the expansion of Europe's forests and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by substituting for fossil fuel intensive products. The Commission is examining ways to encourage these trends." European Commission's Enterprise DG, 2003

Global Warming is a major concern. Reducing energy use and improving technologies will be the main ways to reduce Climate Change.
But our choices about the materials we use can also have a significant effect on the carbon dioxide emissions which are one of the main causes of Global Warming.
