International Day of Action on Big Biomass 2021

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! 

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.

    Biomass incineration is also part of the waste to energy incineration agenda being pushed into every state in Australia right now. Another false waste and energy solution greenwashed by industry and governments. Every forest ecosystem must be protected and we need to move to a zero waste and circular economy future urgently. We can’t burn our way out of climate change that’s for sure! Zero Waste Australia and the National Toxics Network strongly supports this campaign. Congratulations!

    I support this wholeheartedly. This is another example of disinformation to achieve a political gain. The actual numbers of jobs supported by forestry is quite limited, but because they involve marginal seats, decisions are made by politicians which do not reflect true national interests. Most importantly, the CO2 issue should not be used to justify other forms of ecological destruction, in this case, habitat and biodiversity.

    Absolutely on board with this..what audacity to think the proponent’s of this total distortion of truth think they can call it green. “A rose by any other name..”
