Biomass: Not The Answer
Friday, 20 April 2012 09:37
Mr. Brunell also fails to consider the futility of attempting to sustain an ever-growing population on a natural resource based economy. The very fact the timber industry is running pell-mell looking for new and circumventive ways to obtain more control over more land to grow more timber is testament to that fact.
Moreover, innovation, like invention, is derived from necessity. The process of burning wood to produce electricity in the 21st century is an insult to the true entrepreneurial spirit so many say they hold in so high regard, yet so few embrace in practice.
The bottom line is that burning wood is cheaper and easier than creating innovative, truly sustainable, energy production technology. To those “business types” who are so unimaginatively challenged I say, if biomass is your answer to our energy needs then perhaps you should find another line of work to which you are better suited.
