Using wood pellets to generate low-carbon electricity is a flawed policy that is speeding up not slowing down climate warming.

thanks, I thought the goal of biomass was NOT to freshly cut trees/vegetation, but to take trees/vegetation "leftovers" that were otherwise considered to protect and maximize current living trees but "use" and replace the ones blown down, or going to be harvested and not fully used for other ways.......

this is not good the way it is described

personally, i think we need to find ways to use trash and waste material to create energy....which I once saw described somewhere, but don't see enough discussion about
