Thanks to the great folks at the Dogwood Alliance for producing this video. Watch and spread the word about this issue!
Southern wetlands are going ‘Up in Smoke’ so that European governments can meet their renewable energy targets and European citizens can keep their lights on!
Giant wood pellet manufacturers like Enviva, featured in our new video below, are chopping down our forests, turning them into pellets, and shipping them over to Europe for companies like Drax to burn for electricity. This madness needs to stop!
We’re at a critical point in this campaign and need your support to build national awareness around this destructive new industry as we continue the work of protecting forests in the Southern US. Please SHARE this video with your friends and family, post a message on Facebook, and don’t forget to tweet!
