Wood-based Bioenergy a False Climate Change Solution: Report

Date : 2nd June 2010, Source : ENS

BONN, Germany, June 2, 2010 (ENS) - To reduce the impact of climate change, burning wood for energy is not a good substitute for burning fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas, according to a new report issued today by forest advocacy groups at the ongoing United Nations climate talks in Bonn. Here, some 4,500 delegates from 182 countries are attempting to advance negotiations to limit global greenhouse gas emissions. Bioenergy derived from wood poses many threats to forests and to forest-dependent peoples, finds the report, "Wood-based Bioenergy: The Green Lie," released by the Global Justice Ecology Project, Global Forest Coalition and Biofuelwatch.
