Allowing states to co-fire biomass with coal will undermine the main objective of increasing coal plant efficiency
How UK Bioenergy Hurts Forests and the Climate
If the UK is serious about addressing climate change, it must help restore and expand forests – not burn them for energy.
Your one-stop shop for the latest fire science
Thinning forests to reduce fire risk makes sense around structures, but is counterproductive in the backcountry
PFPI, Allies Call Out Greenwashing During So-Called “Clean Energy Week”
Because Clean Energy Doesn’t Come Out of a Smokestack
DOE’s “Billion Ton” Biomass Report – We read it so you wouldn’t have to
Despite requiring clearcutting of millions of forest acres per year, the Department of Energy declines to assess carbon pollution impacts from a biofueled economy.
Status of amendments that would force EPA to treat bioenergy as carbon neutral, and the urgent need for legislative opposition
Legislating that biomass energy has no carbon pollution is legislating a lie.

Representative Beyer (VA) to EPA: Treating biomass as carbon neutral allows Virginia’s forests to be harvested for fuel
“I share the concern that Virginia will become known as a state that harvests forests to reduce its dependence on coal, rather than one that develops renewable technologies that clearly reduce emissions, such as solar and wind”
Class action lawsuit alleges wood pellet maker Enviva is “engaged in textbook greenwashing”
We’re shocked – shocked! – to hear of Enviva’s “reckless disregard for the truth
EU climate plan bets on non-existent technology to reduce emissions
Plans for climate neutrality rely on doubling biomass burning and trapping CO2 using geological storage, locking EU into climate failure.
