To prevent dangerous climate warming, we need to plant trees, not burn them for energy.
Despite requiring clearcutting of millions of forest acres per year, the Department of Energy declines to assess carbon pollution impacts from a biofueled economy.
It really is that simple. Claims that biomass "reduces" emissions rely on not counting the CO2 emitted when the biomass is burned.
Lithonia, GA and Manchester, UK, are facing polluting, high-emissions biomass power plants sold as "green" power, even though air pollution is already at unhealthy levels.
