Have you heard the latest from Europe?
To meet their environmental targets and also due to their embargo of oil sands oil, along with the misguided idea of phasing out nuclear power and the fact that wind power isn't working out too well, Europe is going back to an old energy source. Burning of biomass is becoming an increasing part of Europe's energy mix. Biomass, what is that? Essentially it's clear cutting of forests and burning the trees. One slight problem, they can't cut their own forests due to some other regulations so they are importing the pulp from overseas thus paying for North and South American nations to clear cut their own forests. No doubt the environmentalists will be happy once all the trees (which convert carbon dioxide into oxygen) and all gone. No I'm not making this up.
