Join a free online viewing of the acclaimed documentary “BURNED” on January 28 at 7:00pm. The film powerfully shows how intensively logging forests and burning them to produce electricity is supported and subsidized on a massive scale as “clean, “carbon neutral” and “renewable” even as it fast-tracks deforestation, pollutes our air, and makes climate change worse.
Standing Trees Vermont, a new coalition working to protect, preserve and restore forests on our State and Federal lands, is hosting this on-line event with the support of many allies in the region, including Vermont Family Forests. Coalition members as well as film-makers Lisa Merton and Chris Hardee will be available for Q and A following the film. All are welcome.
About the film: Through interviews with activists, experts, and citizens, along with verité-style footage shot across the U.S. and in Europe, BURNED interweaves the science of climate change, energy-policy disputes, the biomass industry practices, forest ecology, conflict over jobs, and the actions of activists and citizens who are working to protect their health and that of their communities, the forest, and our climate.
What: A film showing and discussion of BURNED: Are Trees the New Coal?
When: 01/28/2021 @ 7:00 pm—TOMORROW NIGHT!
