Politics | America’s Century-Old Hardwood Forests Destroyed for European Powerplants as Part of Biden’s ‘Climate Goals’

Despite Biden’s hot air about green policies and environmentalism, ancient forests across America are being wiped out to provide wood pellets for European energy plants.

Hundreds of thousands of acres of American forest from Texas to Virginia are being destroyed by more than two dozen pellet mills that are providing material for power plants in the European Union in an about-faced bid to reach climate goals.

The North American Coastal Plain has reportedly lost around 70 percent of its historic vegetation and ancient trees, destroying biodiversity. The damage will take decades to replace.

Multi-billion-dollar subsidies by the Biden Administration for the industry make producing the pellets profitable for mills, and earlier this month, Biden announced a further $1 billion in federal grants to support ‘clean energy’ including biomass firms that are responsible for the mass destruction of forests.

It is another example of Biden’s trigger-happy approach to green energy. Even woke climate change mouthpiece, Greta Thunberg has slammed the European subsidies for the industry!

While advocates say they are a cleaner alternative to coal, critics argue that the burning of wood causes 2.5 times more carbon emissions than natural gas and 30 times more than coal, according to a 2017 study by the World Resources Institute.


Is there anything more fraudulent than the green energy movement?

When I was new in the trucking industry, I was in the pulpwood (for paper) * and logging industry (for lumber) for several years. Back then, the foresters cut down the forests with mostly what they called "select cuts", which meant only certain trees were harvested while the rest were left standing for future growth and creating a sustainable resource. Nowadays, these green energy kooks don't care about future renewable resources or fossil fuels because they assume that we'll have been forced over to wind and solar, which to this point has been deemed unreliable.
Destroying our forests and selling it to Europe is idiotic, especially since these irresponsible fools running our govt. nowadays don't care about our future resources if they don't fit their radical leftist agenda.

They tell us to go out and plant a tree while they're whacking them down by the millions.
