Bio fuel ?

They are talking "bio-fuel" now, with the "bio" making it sound friendlier somehow. The pine beetle killed off the Pine forests in British Columbia, we suppose because of the warm winters, now we want to cut them all down for bio fuel and plant "marketable stock". They are saying, the money suckers who survive from bending our rubber minds, that the threat of dead decaying pine forests will produce enough carbon emissions to threaten the planet ? We are crazy. What does all the wildlife do while we are clearing the forests. Have you ever walked through a clear cut? There is no place to go. There is nothing left. We are proposing clear cuts of the like never seen before.

Meanwhile lumber mills are cutting, killing, the last 500 -600 year old fir trees because

they are part of the "prescription". Our neighbours found a 1000 year old lying in a cut block left because it had some rot in the middle. The point is why was it cut down and left in the first place! Maybe the last one. It won't even get a chance to rot and become fertilizer for the next generation - the "unmarketable timber" is pushed into piles and burned.

We humans, whether you like it or not, are ripping off the earth, eating it and then complaining about the aftertaste and the heartburn.

We'll go in with feller bunchers and cut the trees, skid them out with skidders, load them on trucks and truck them to plants that aren't built yet, process them into ethanol, put the ethanol into our vehicles and burn it.... Sounds like a green plan to me.


But everyone knows this. That's what makes it so absurd and difficult to even talk about.

Yep Bio-fuels represent big bucks. Its more comercial to grow crops for fuel than for food, so now we have the obsurd situation in places likes argentine where foodcrops are being eaten by our cars and the poor that till the fields are going hungry.

Biofuels won't only be the destruction of the worlds environments but is taken food out of the mouths of the already starving poor.

Couldn't agree more. Here in the UK we appear to be going down the route of continuous cover forestry.
There's also a tribe of native american indians - the Menominee - who have practiced such a system for years and supported a whole nation in doing so - might be worth your while having a look at how they do it.
