There are two aspects:
1. Debate about whether there is climate change. My response is: Opinions are like navels (belly buttons). Everybody has one. (the originally mentioned body part is a different one (and not the nose or mouth).) I have other things to do in my life than enter into that debate.
2. Discuss possible actions that involve cookstoves that could cause carbon drawdown (or earning carbon credits). This is not about if it should be done, but is about how it can be done. And even more important is to actually be doing actions. And to do those actions, some funding would be very appropriate and useful to get the stoves into use. And if funding comes from people who are motivated by climate change, that money is just as good as money from people motivated by health reasons.. Even better if both, but one is sufficient. And I think that carbon (climate) issues could be more motivating than are the health issues (at least to some potential sources of grants, gifts, loans or sales of carbon credits.)
I am watching to see what messages come via the Stoves Listserv.
Is it that you feel debate is over, or that this the wrong place for the debate? Philip
