The Blomidon Naturalist Society is partnering with the Ecology Action Centre to present the award-winning documentary film “Burned – Are Trees the New Coal?” about the recent rise of the global biomass industry and its impacts on our forests & the atmosphere.

The award-winning documentary BURNED focuses on the eastern seaboard of the States but the story could be anywhere – including Nova Scotia, where the recent advent of big biomass has consumed millions of tonnes of our forests and driven forestry practices to new lows. In a perversion of the term 'green', forests worldwide are being clearcut & burned for electricity generation under the guise of producing 'green energy'.
Of course, this is happening at the precise time we need our forests more than ever — to help combat climate change. BURNED exposes the 'green' farce, propped up by massive government subsidies, in a riveting film every citizen, taxpayer & electricity ratepayer should see — especially if you care about forests.

A brief discussion will follow the screening.
