BURNED: ARE TREES THE NEW COAL?
An award-winning documentary by independent filmmakers, Marlboro Productions, about the the burning of wood at an industrial scale for energy.
BURNED tells the little-known story of the accelerating destruction of our forests for fuel, and probes the policy loopholes, huge subsidies, and blatant greenwashing of the burgeoning biomass power industry.
The film focuses on the cutting of forests in the southeastern US, which are then shipped to Europe to be burned primarily in Drax Power Station in North Yorkshire, the largest biomass power station in the world.
Carolina Nature Coalition worked with the "Eventbrite" to organize a screening in our area. Discussion and Q&A was held after the film.
