I agree it's a matter of degrees but that is how the process works and how footprints are measured. It's the release of greenhouse gasses (primarily CO2) during the manufacturing phase, whether it's manufacturing a product (CF) or heat to cook food (wood pellets). Carbon neutral would be to use a solar oven, for example. No release of CO2.

As someone said: bicycle riders are already pretty low on the polluting scale to be worried about CF or wood pellet stoves in that way.
