European Strategic Long-Term Vision (2018-11-28)


",,,The current changes in our planet's climate are redrawing the world and magnifying the risks for instability in all forms.
The last two decades included 18 of the warmest years on record. The trend is clear.
Immediate and decisive climate action is essential..."

Burning Biomass Results in Ecological Disaster


Due to massive subsidies in the EU, biomass energy plants are multiplying fast and as a result the logging, shipping & burning of woody biomass is too. This is causing an ecological disaster of epic proportions. Burning biomass kills people, animals and biodiversity. Politicians who allow biomass energy plants to exist are directly responsible for the illnesses, deaths, deforestation, depleted biodiversity, increased global warming and climate change it causes. Let's hold them accountable & end the massacre now! 


Burning Biomass Contributes to More Emissions

 

The burning of woody biomass results in three times as much  carbon dioxide emission as burning gas and even produces more carbon dioxide in comparisment with burning coal or oil which drasticaly increases global warming.

Health Issues Caused by Burning Biomass


Switching from burning biomass in stead of coal increases deadly particulate emissions with 400%
Emissions from biomass plants are very hazardous. Besides the massive damage caused to the enviroment & wildlife it is also especially harmful to our own healthEmissions from biomass burning contain particle pollution, nitrogen, hydrochloric acid, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen fluoride, ammonia, heavy metals and dioxins and furans. These emissions cause diseases such as lung disease, hart failure and cancer. On average people die 13 months sooner due to particle pollution. Nitrogen emissions destroys nature’s biodiversity. It causes one plant to grow excessively and therefore other plants don’t stand a chance. Nitrogen kills marine life and it gets into our drinking water which can cause cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. Nitrogen also makes bones weak. Baby birds born in a nitrogen deposit area currently break their legs when they first try to walk. 


Accountability


Governments all over the world are replacing fossil fuel installations with biomass plants and are deforesting the entire world. People and animals are losing their homes and habitats and soil is becoming infertile due to extensive logging. Citizens all over the world are worried about the climate and the disappearance of trees, forests and rainforests. But politicians only think about the economy and making profits for billion dollar companies. The consequences of global warming for the world’s population will be extensive and we hereby state that every person who is willingly acting in a way that worsens climate change should be held accountable for their actions. Watch the international premiere of "Burned" to discover why this is important to you!


45 Solutions


We've presented 45 viable solutions to end the burning of biomass and fossil fuels. Check em out!


Our Mission


  1. Inform all involved parties
  2. Hold politicians accountable 
  3. End subsidies for burning biomass
  4. End the burning of biomass & fossil fuels

We share a vision of a world in which thriving natural forests play a significant role in tackling climate change and contribute to a clean, healthy, just and sustainable future for all life on earth. Burning forest wood for large-scale energy production cannot be part of that future for all of the reasons outlined on this website. Instead we must protect and restore natural forests, thereby reducing emissions and removing atmospheric carbon dioxide while supporting biodiversity, resilience and well-being.
