If protecting health and climate are important in stove projects, why not monetize the reductions of health/climate pollutants in carbon-offset projects?
Only the reduction in fuel use earns carbon income now!
With equal heat transfer efficiency, dirty burning stoves earn as much as clean burning stoves.
Dirty burning stoves are less expensive. “Market demand” reinforces the use of biomass stoves with low combustion efficiency.
Why not add income from reductions in CO, PM2.5 and Black Carbon, etc. to carbon projects to get cleaner burning stoves into use?
The approved 2017 Gold Standard Methodology already exists to do this! See: www.goldstandard.org/articles/black-carbon-and-other-short-lived-climate-pollutants
