Slow burn

Earlier, we reported the Global Global Anti-Incinerator Alliance has circulated a draft position statement on biomass power stating, "no combustion technologies should be subsidized with public money or defined as 'clean,' 'renewable,' or 'green' energy" - a position that could be at odds with the Campbell administration's new bioenergy strategy. In an interview with Public Eye, the alliance's United States coordinator Dave Ciplet explained, "I think there's a lot of room for concern about biomass incineration in terms of the greenhouse gas impact, the toxic impact and the economics of it." He said a finalized position on biomass power is "less than a year away."

Sean, I have to ask just who this so-called Global Alliance really is? I looked at their website and from all appearances they are a very particular and not altogether large bunch.
