29. Ha ha. Less than what it takes to generate the electricty that I would use otherwise.

Modern wood burning appliances burn pretty clean. Lots of federal regulations around their emissions performance. But it all depends on what you burn and how you burn it. Seasoned wood burns hot and efficiently.

My only regret is that several strong hardwoods were harvested to keep warm this winter. But I suspect my overall environmental impact is less than processing and transporting hundreds of gallons of hating oil from south america.
