You are arguing matters of degrees again. And, I have said the degrees are small. Burn enough wood though and you would create a carbon footprint worth considering. We don't (consider it) because fossil fuels drive most of our infrastructure instead. Start clear cutting major biomass to heat, power industry, all vehicles etc... and burning it faster than it can be re sequestered and it would be a problem. Somewhere around the late Victorian era we got off that track and heavily dependent on fossil fuels (though coal was always around).

In the 70's we had a chance to change with the oil embargo when alternative energy began to be explored and smaller import cars exploded on the N.A. scene. However, we collectively failed and reverted back once oil became available and cheap once more.

But, again, I don't think twigs in a wood stove are a concern.
