“They took all the trees, and put ’em in a tree museum…“, or in this case – burned them in a biomass power plant.
Please read this very important report on global bioenergy strategy and ask yourself this question, “Who agreed to this ?”
And then, maybe consider coming to this meeting :-
“A Burning Issue – Biomass and its impacts on forests and communities”
“At this event we are launching our new report “Biomass: the Chain of Destruction” which tracks the impacts of the rapidly growing industry using biomass for electricity generation – from the cleared forests of the Americas to the communities in the UK living in the shadow of it.”
“We will be hearing from speakers who will tell us about the thousands of hectares of eucalyptus plantations that have replaced diverse ecosystems and communities in the Brazillian state of Maranhão. We will also hear about the clear-felling of ancient wetland forests in the Southern US to fuel Drax and E-On’s switch to so-called “clean” biomass energy. Lastly we will hear about the struggles of communities in the UK fighting unfair planning, poor air quality and environmental injustice.”
“The event is free but please email us to let us know you are coming firstname.lastname@example.org”
