Clearcutting forests and burning them is not renewable

Posted By on Thu, Apr 5, 2018 at 10:58 AM

The province of Nova Scotia is clearcutting our forests and burning them for energy.  It is basically a giant bonfire. It's not a physically efficient means of producing energy. It's not economical. The plants that do this are even subsidized by the government.  They are calling it "biomass" and a "renewable energy" source. On the books this non-renewable completely senseless waste is considered renewable energy. We should hold them accountable. —Tree Hugger
