I got the point.

Almost no other animal on this planet drinks milk after infancy.

And humans are no different.

I took a dairy and beef cattle management classes in college, number one those are some of the only animals I have seen that can break their own neck in a gate. Number 2 stock yard beef is some scary stuff and the mega dairies out west are not much less scary (or stinky). There should never be over 100,000 head of cattle in a 10 mi radius.

I agree.

Free range should be the only way.

Pallets hear at work are coated with a cheap wax to repel water. They are not pressure treated. I'm going to do some research on pallet burning. [QUOTE
It is far more important to never burn treated wood so don't burn pallets.[/QUOTE]

A quick google search reveals that pallets mark MB (methyl bromide) Are NOT safe to burn. Almost all other pallets are ok to burn. Very few pallets contain MB and are costly so they are seldom used.

Pallets could have god knows what soaked into them don't burn them for as many times as they get reused. It isn't worth the risk. Or if you do have plenty of ventilation and drink some milk and beer for good measure.

I burn oak and maple pallets in the wood stove all the time. Make sure they are stamped HT (heat treated). It's pretty easy to tell if they are contaminated with oil and chemicals from use. They stain easily.

My inner hippy is sad, on the inside there is an actor playing a native american shedding a single tear for the burning of the pallet. Please recycle pallets or at least make something neat with them (while fire is neat its impermanence renders it void for this discussion).

You're missing a big point here, CaptainInsaneo. Burning pallets IS recycling them for another use. It is very common to heat with wood around here (a fully renewable resource). We use pallets for many other purposes as well, but the good, clean oak and maple pallets often get burned to keep us alive in the winter...

Yes, fire is neat! And a necessity. Heat isn't just fun in the winter, it's required. Up here we die if come December there is no constantly operating heat source. The heat can come from many sources: propane, natural gas, coal, electricity (if you're on the grid), old tires, wood. Of all those listed heat sources wood is the cleanest solution while still being accessible to us and many other folk. Pallets are wood. Some pallets are clean...
