Wood burning was a thing of our past. I'm not sure there's a whole lot of wood left -- I could and hopefully be wrong about it but either way we use more wood than grown. That I'm very sure about.
So -- Oil and Gas is gone then what? It's scary to me, not for me but my Son and his offspring to come.
That's what I want. I'd like to use it to heat my house and my barn both. Aer they hard to get, hard to install, expensive? I already have a boiler system set up for the house, so it would be easy to convert it from gas to the outdoor woodstove.

This can be a terrible idea if more people catch on to it, but I don't think it will. Sure wood is a renewable resource, just like oil, coal and natural gas. What was stated in the OP is propoganda, making wood out to seem as if it is the 'only' renewable reasource.
And it is only renewable so long as the tree growth to maturity is as high as the consumption rate. If that rate dips, there won't be any trees left. Trees are already used in timber, paper, etc. Adding another billion dollar business to the pile can only be bad.
