Scientists urge use of renewable biomass to meet energy and climate goals

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

More than 100 scientists signed a letter to House (PDF) and Senate (PDF) leaders this week expressing their concerns about the Environmental Protection Agency's "Tailoring Rule" and other policies that equate emissions from biomass energy with fossil fuel emissions. According to the Society of American Foresters, the letter reaffirmed the sentiment of many members of Congress that biomass has an important role in our nation's renewable energy policy and that EPA regulations are impeding the existence and potential development of renewable biomass energy sources.
