George Wuerthner challenges biomass energy.

If biomass energy production were fully implemented, it would become the single largest human impact to land in the country, requiring the near full utilization of all the U.S. forests and much of its agricultural lands for fuel production, contributing to what one TNC scientist has termed “energy sprawl.”

    This looks like a great article. I hope to get time to read it in more detail soon. In Washington State in the rural areas the local politicians believe this will replace timber jobs. It will be a huge mess and not green or sustainable at all. I plan to do more research on it so I can help people understand it.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
