[biofuelwatch] Re: [Biomass] Half the Wood for New Hampshire Biomass Incinerator from Out of State

The absurdity of this… and when one crosses the border from NH into Maine there are signs advising no transport of firewood across borders (beetle concern).  Yet JUST at the border of NH and ME is a massive chipping enterprise and the roadsides are paved in chips spilled off the backs of transport trucks.

Half the Wood for New Hampshire Biomass Incinerator from Out of State

<Hemphill Power & Light 030_0.JPG>About 51 percent of the wood purchased for the new Burgess BioPower biomass plant in Berlin during its first two months of operation came from New Hampshire, according to a new "sustainability" report filed with the state's Site Evaluation Committee.

"Compromise is often necessary, but it ought not to originate with environmental leaders. Our role is to hold fast to what we believe is right, to fight for it, to find allies, and to adduce all possible arguments for our cause. If we cannot find enough vigor in us or our friends to win, then let someone else propose the compromise, which we must then work hard to coax our way. We thus become a nucleus around which activists can build and function." -- David Brower

Biofuels are a wide range of fuels which are in some way derived from biomass.
