Stop Big Companies From Burning Our Forests ! PLEASE SIGN ! !

Right now, energy companies are cutting and burning our Southeastern forests to make electricity in power plants. Burning trees for electricity creates more carbon pollution than coal, gas and oil. It's a dirty process that destroys our forests.

The devastation big companies cause to the waters and the ground with oil spills and reckless digging is far outweighed by the greenhouse effect promoted by a fervent belief in burning things. It didn't help Salem, Massachusetts, and it certainly won't help our planet, when then sun is blocked out by a dense cloud of black smog that prevents any light from reaching the ground.

But perhaps that's what the energy companies want. Then they can announce their new invention--the waterlight. It burns up the oceans, which no one needs anyway, in order to produce profits, I mean power, for Big Business, I mean, for lights.

Our precious forests are abused again and again. Just recently there was a fire that destroyed so much of our foresta, but not due to abuse by man. Trees/forests offer the fresh air we so desperately need for survival. So it is not only the beauty of the forest, but the benefits to our natural plant life that we must consider. Re-examine the process. Is it necessary to destroy at the whim of one team/group for self advancement in profit. What other options were considered?
