Global Forest Coalition launches report alleging bioenergy a carbon scam

In France, the Global Forest Coalition launched a new report at the Paris climate talks titled “Biomyths, the Costly Carbon Scam of Bioenergy” it says exposes how large-scale bioenergy is being promoted as a replacement to some fossil fuels, based on what it calls the myth of its “carbon neutrality”. The report provides an overview of current global industrial-scale bioenergy trends.

Accepting that large-scale bioenergy can be carbon neutral will permit power plants to go on pumping carbon emissions into the atmosphere whilst countries falsely claim that they are reducing emissions.” said Mary Lou Malig, Global Forest Coalition Campaigns Coordinator, who is currently attending the climate negotiations. “In combination with proposals like Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS), such claims turn any possible agreement that might come out of Paris into a fraudulent scam.
