US Climate Plan promotes energy from trees

February 2, 2015

If the Department of Energy has its way, this will include GE trees

In Politico last week (29 January 2015), Michael Grunwald criticized the US government’s support of bioenergy, focusing on radical concessions that the EPA might make for the industry.

This is why it is so dangerous to keep the focus only on eliminating fossil fuels. Moreover, if wood-based bioenergy continues to be successfully promoted as a supposed “renewable” alternative, not only will we lose our forests, they will be replaced with dangerous and destructive genetically engineered tree plantations.
