Tell European leaders: SOS! Our Southern forests aren't fuel!

Our Southern forests shouldn't be used to keep the lights on in Europe. Tell European leaders to stop burning our forests for fuel!

Burning trees for electricity creates more carbon pollution than coal — and destroys our irreplaceable native forests in the process. But the European Union’s misguided “renewable energy” policies ignore mounting scientific evidence that shows burning trees to produce electricity is disastrous for our environment. As a result, the EU is buying more wood for fuel, cutting down southern forests and harming our health, environment, climate and quality of life.


Our southern forests shouldn’t be used to keep the lights on in Europe. Tell European leaders to stop burning our forests for fuel!
