As if to emphasize the need for everyone to plant trees, which is one of the InDeed initiatives, the Global Forest Coalition has published a report called Biomyths: the costly carbon scam of bioenergy, exposing the dangers to the environment of growing wood merely for biomass generation. This is not a method of reducing carbon emissions at all, but an accounting trick:-
Overall, this ‘carbon neutral’ accounting loophole is set to undermine progress towards climate change. It will permit power plants to go on pumping carbon emissions into the environment whilst countries falsely claim that they are reducing emissions.
In fact, rainforests could provide half the solution to the global climate by 2050. “Planting a tree is like building a house for the environment.” (Amma)
