Smoke And Mirrors | Environment
The Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League has new report out on biomass energy sources. The report, entitled Smoke and Mirrors is a comprehensive analysis of energy production facilities that manufacture fuel or electricity from organic materials known as biomass. Blue Ridge's goal is to change energy policy in the Southeast and in the nation.
The report is skeptical about the theory that biomass energy is "carbon neutral" and explains why the natural carbon cycle cannot be relied upon to process biomass carbon dioxide emissions. Smoke and Mirrors has several case studies of a variety of biomass energy facilities.
