Fuel Wood

La coupe des bocages, haies, bois et taillis est en marche forcée. Les chaufferies au bois individuelles et collectives réduisent en cendres tout ce qui peut être brûlé sur l’autel des énergies renouvelables, y compris les bois de démolition pollués. L’impact global de la filière bois énergie sur la biodiversité est secondaire. Un arbre abattu, c’est un écosystème foutu.

Wood Energy massacres trees and biodiversity

Chainsaws are impatient and are cutting down without letting up. They are pairing up with wood shredders that reduce fallen trees into fuel. Nothing comes through alive; hundred year old, notable, or isolated trees, tree-lined avenues, and forests. Any excuse will do; they block the sun, they obstruct the view, they are sick, they interfere with the train, they accumulate starlings, are dangerous for road safety, and even hedges are not safe. France is burning since the government, ADEME (Environmental Agency and Energy Control) and environmentalists have promoted forests to the level of renewable energy and the collective and individual heating using wood is spreading like an epidemic. Right-minded people and smooth talkers are busy forming their energy packages, offering it to voters while looking elsewhere; Amazon, Indonesia, and the island of Borneo with insincere crocodile tears.
