Film Screening: Burned – Are Trees the New Coal?
Tuesday, May 21, 2019 (6:00PM – 8:30PM)

Alderney Gate Public Library

A compelling new film about the rise of the biomass industry is on tour now in Nova Scotia. The Ecology Action Centre (EAC) is presenting screenings of the new film Burned – Are Trees the New Coal across the province.
The award-winning documentary Burned focuses on the eastern seaboard of the United 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.
Burned exposes the farce, propped up by bad public policy and massive government subsidies, in a riveting film every citizen, taxpayer and electricity ratepayer should see – especially those who care about forests.
In partnership with the Ecology Action Centre
