In the wake of the IPCC’s most frightening report yet, as we see the collapse of the forest carbon sink due to overlogging for biomass fuel, it’s a no-brainer to slam the brakes on logging forests for renewable energy
The current reform to forest biomass policy supported by the Council will lead to ecosystem and climate collapse
Climate-critical land carbon sink is rapidly declining, while harvesting and burning wood for biomass energy continues to grow
A single 50 MW biomass electricity plant burns as much wood per year as 180,000 homes – while raking in millions in subsidies that could be supporting truly clean energy
EU policymakers and investors take note: biomass company claims about carbon neutrality don’t survive scrutiny.
Transport, Telecommunications and Energy Council Waves Through Biomass Subsidies, Continued Habitat Destruction
In which we use fizziks to demonstrate that wood-burning power plants on average emit a lot more CO2 than fossil-fueled plants.
