Our Forests Are Not Fuel

Our forests are being chopped down and turned into wood chips and pellets for burning in power plants to produce electricity.

Burning trees to produce electricity creates more climate-busting carbon pollution than coal, gas, and oil, speeds up the impacts of climate change, and displaces wildlife. Instead, we should be investing in clean, renewable sources of energy and protecting our forests and the wildlife that thrives in them.

Send a message to Congress calling on them to oppose this destructive tree-burning practice now.
