Last month we released our first investigative video in support of the Our Forests Aren’t Fuel campaign: Wetlands Up in Smoke.
The short film featuring a wide variety of voices documents the growing impact of the wood pellet industry on our Forests, community and climate.
Southern wetlands are going ‘Up in Smoke’ so that European governments can meet their renewable energy targets and European citizens can keep their lights on!
Giant wood pellet manufacturers like Enviva, featured in our new video below, are chopping down our forests, turning them into pellets, and shipping them over to Europe for companies like Drax to burn for electricity. This madness needs to stop!
