Biomass is dirty energy and pollute more than coal. Southern forests are under threat of clearcuts to supply wood pellets to be exported to Europe to burn for energy. ‘Burning forests’ for energy is not only bad for the environment but it affects local communities’ health and well-being as it creates noise and dust pollution that can lead to asthma, cancer, cardio vascular diseases.

Surprisingly, not many people are aware of the biggest threat to the forests in their own backyard. So I am here today, joining the campaign organising team in Raleigh, NC, to raise awareness on the negative impacts of biomass. It was fun and meaningful, and I have to say that we received a lot of honks than we have expected!
