"Burning New England's Forests for Electricity?" . . . Discussion Wednesday at Williamstown town hall
BURNING NEW ENGLAND'S FORESTS for ELECTRICITY?
Speaker: Josh Schlossberg / Biomass Accountability Project
Wednesday, February 16, 7 p.m. / Williamstown Town Hall, Selectmen's Room
Forest biomass power incineration emits more CO2 stack emissions than coal, pollutes the air with sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter, and threatens New England's precious forests. So why does biomass power receive hundreds of millions of federal and state "clean energy" tax dollars?
Join a presentation and open forum with Biomass Accountability Project's Josh Schlossberg to discuss whether our taxes should support biomass power incineration-or go instead to zero-waste, renewable energy alternatives.
