us on November 13th to send an SOS of more than 10,000 messages
asking EU policymakers to Save Our Southern forests.
biggest threat to Southern forests is the expanding biomass
industry. The wood pellet industry is expanding at a rate that is impossible
for Southern forests to sustain. Our beautiful forests are
being clear-cut, processed into pellets, and then shipped to Europe
to be burned for electricity. We know that our
forests arenít fuel, and thatís why weíre sending an
SOS to EU policymakers to Save Our Southern forests.
November 13th, as the wood products industry meets in Chesapeake,
VA, to celebrate the destruction and export of our incredible
forests, people from across the U.S. are coming together for a National
Day of Action to send an SOS to Save Our Southern forests.
With 20 existing wood pellet facilities and 33
proposed, itís crucial that we show EU policymakers that
the biomass industry is bad for our environment, our communities,
and our economy. Join us in sending an SOS of more than 10,000
messages to EU policymakers.
