How long would the U.S. burn through 75 million cubic meters of wood? About 2.5 years.

So here’s the deal: You have 75 million cubic meters of wood and need to do something with it?  Why not power an entire country like the U.S.?  Well, not so much.  Assuming we could transport it and build power plants and upgrade our entire grid and cars and home heating systems FOR FREE, that much wood (about 20.7 million cord, enough wood to completely fill Manhattan almost 1 meter deep) would only last 2.25 to 2.75 years.

The photo above, from a stockpile in Sweden, is only 1 million cubic meters of lumber.
