Hehe Kuya Art I be happy to tell you here where I got it as long as I don't get in trouble for advertising the business. It cost I think 2500 pesos( sori, getting senile due to old age) and locally made in La Union.

at least wood is "carbon neutral" in that as it goes, it stores the carbon, then, when it decomposes or is burnt, it releases the carbon.
Really has nothing to do with the ozone layer.... this is associated with hydroflurocarbons ( refrigeration gas ) in the upper atmosphere.

Carbon, as CO2 gas, acts as a blanket and as such, slows down the loss of heat from the planet.

Nature has evolved to a very fine balance of all "things"
This balance point is such that it allows life to exist.
When the balance point moves too far from our current "ideal" point........ well......life as we know it will be gone.

Thank you. Just to let you know I flunked chemistry twice in college. My professor took pity on me gave me a passing grade so I can graduate.  Lol.

A friend of ours put 50 meters of rolled up 3/4 inch PVC pipe on his roof and connected it to his water supply pipe for warm or hot water..Intruiged,we used this idea and connected it to a rain shower head via a hot,cold mixer tap.. it works so great that we just rolled up another 2 X 100m sections..One for anther shower and the other for the washing machine! Highly recommend this simple solar heating idea.Wish I had of done this years ago.
Along with our new off grid solar set up,we are now fully indepenent of Boheco and their extortionate power bills and constant brown outs .

Excellent! I know of a few others who do the same or similar to heat water. Works great!
