"oil" is carbon neutral: or was it "wood"?

People keep repeating that "wood is carbon neutral" slogan to me. Sure, the wood-boiler and other related industries are celebrating this marketing frenzy. But it is brutal rubbish.

Obviously the human brain tends to make calculations neglecting time expecially when the scale of time doesn't match our wee and limited horizon! Watch out, soon we will be told "oil is carbon neutral!" simply because oil = wood = carbon ?!?

Now. how is that?

"What's so neutral about wood? Time!"

Carpe diem!
