Enviva’s solution to our climate crisis involves cutting down mature hardwood forests in the Southern US, turning them into pellets, placing them on huge ships, and sending them across the Atlantic to Europe to be burned for industrial electricity.
Burning forests for fuel releases more heat-trapping carbon dioxide for every megawatt of electricity produced than coal.
Don’t let companies like Enviva fool you– the ‘green’ fuel that they are marketing is driving climate change.
Time for the madness to STOP! Say no to Drax, Enviva, and industrial biomass!
