Discusses growing plants for fuels in vehicles, etc.
Brendan Montague, Editor of the ECOLOGIST: Footage reveals huge areas of hardwood forest in the state of Virginia being chopped down and removed to a factory that grinds up logs into pellets. A large proportion of these pellets are then shipped across the Atlantic to be burnt at Drax power plant in the UK. To burn an amount of wood pellets that would generate the same amount of electricity as coal it would actually produce roughly eight percent more carbon.
Paul Driessen, senior policy analyst for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow, Howard Cork Hayden, Emeritus Professor of Physics, U. of Connecticut: How useful are bio fuels? Two answers. Both indicate that bio fuels are not nearly as good as fossil fuels, in fact they are very harmful for the well being of humanity. But government environmental ideology and mandates have kept them going so far.
