We Breathe What They Burn: Say NO to Biomass!
Burning biomass pollutes the air we breathe. People who live near these polluting incinerators are at a higher risk for asthma, heart disease and cancer just from breathing the air.
But Governor Baker and his administration are trying to pass off these toxic, polluting, high-cost energy sources as renewables. That means that taxpayer money—meant to increase renewable energy in our state—would go to these dirty industries instead.
Tell Governor Baker and Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Kathleen Theoharides to eliminate all clean energy subsidies for wood-burning and waste incineration and put that money to work for truly clean energy.
