Save The Coal – Kill and Burn Trees Instead

How insane. The Green AGW Cult is killing whole forests in North America and shipping the dead trees all the way to Europe to be burned for electricity instead of burning coal which has been dead for millions of years.

From the GWPF:

“A British government policy change is causing coal plants to convert to burning biomass, fuelling a huge increase in wood pellet exports from North America. But a new review of biofuels’ impact has cast doubt on their ability to tackle climate change.”

“The European policy is boosting exports of wood pellets from North America. American export volumes are forecast to increase from an estimated 1.5 million tonmes in 2012 to 5.7 million tonnes in 2015, according to the North American Wood Fiber Review.

Total Canadian exports to Europe in the second quarter of this year rose 14% from the first quarter, with reports of British Colombian pellet plants running at full capacity thanks to European demand.

Biomass-burning plants in the UK import most of their fuel, mostly from North America, which increases their carbon impact from transportation.”

  1. The world’s gone mad, the world’s gone green, the greens are mad as hatters but in Britain – they write our energy legislation and draft energy bills for our Parliament. Switching from coal, to burning wood – though, it really can’t get any more lunatic than that……………………………can it?

    1. 200 TCF of nice clean shale gas (and probably a lot more) is being left in the ground so the UK can ruin the countryside with wind turbines to make rent-seekers rich.

      So yes, it can get worse.
