By the way did you know that if you have a roaring fire and threw a shovel full of sawdust on, it can explode like a dragons breath.

No Kester your wrong. Sustainability it is not. It's OK when there is only a few using this method, but when you get thousands it becaomes unviable. You only have to look at some African rural communities that use the "brushwood method". They use the brushwood then there is not enough to go round they then attack the trees, after a couple of years there's no trees and the land becomes unproductive.
There is only one method then for the environment to recover and that is move ALL humans out of the area and replant. But it would take years to recover the lost habitat and besides there is nowhere for these populations to go, hence starvations.
