Nobody really wants these BIO MASS plants at all. They are a drain on all of our countries not only in TAXES and TAX MONEY but on our lives, environment, health, infant mortality, premature death, cancer, asthma, heart disease, diabetes, autism, etc. and our air, our land, our water, and our forest. For what to make a few companies rich at our expense and I would say this is alot to pay for very little return. It is a waste of our trees and childrens lives and illnesses. Shame on the large energy corporations around the world that approve of these monstrousities they should be tried for
the murder of our young, and should be made to make restituion to all effected by there pollution so much so it puts them out of business. As a world we can do better than biomass. Biomass is a
travisty and a boondoggle on all of our countries. All of our politicians are bought out all the way up to our leaders. What a terrible, terrible excuse of leadership around the world? Shame on all of our leaders, they seem to all be followers and look at what they are doing to us all, letting these companies come in and slaughter us with pollution and allow the rape of our lands.
