cutting down forests in the name of climate change

OMG!!!  Such insanity.

QUOTE FROM ARTICLE:

"A key part of government efforts to hit its green energy targets is to switch from generating electricity from burning coal to burning wood - or so-called biomass. It’s a policy that is costing taxpayers more than £700 million per year through a levy on their electricity bills.

The biomass industry and government argue that because wood is a renewable source of energy and trees can be replanted to reabsorb carbon dioxide this policy is good for the environment."

REALLY??? Does this egghead know how looooong it takes for a tree to grow?  Especially hardwood trees?  I hope common sense takes hold before they wreck the environment completely for some insane notion about climate change.  It's a fable.
