On Thursday, 21st October, we'll be participating in a global Day of Action against Big Biomass.
Biomass is being touted as a new, innovative, 'renewable' energy that will decrease carbon emissions.
But we know this is a greenwashed myth.
Forest biomass releases even more carbon than coal and is just another excuse for propping up the destructive and economically senseless logging industry.
We need to take a stand against biomass - we want to move away from burning carbon entirely, which means we don't want dirty coal power to be replaced with native forest furnaces!
Join the International Day of Action
You can get active at home by joining our big banner action - we want to see banners in front yard trees all around the country!
Home-made banners, with the message "Cut Carbon Not Forests" hanging in front yards and windows all around the country will send a clear and urgent message.
Using a recycled piece of fabric, an old tea-towel, or bedsheet and string, you can make a banner to hang in a tree in your front yard.
If you don't have a tree, you can simply make a sign (or print one of our pre-made ones), stick it in your front window, snap a picture and upload it to Instagram or Twitter.
Make sure you use the hashtag #BigBadBiomass so you'll be included in a virtual rally of people, all around the globe, taking action in unison!
