Burn or Restore: New BirdLife report on the world’s land demands

by admin

Land is a finite resource. Yet growing demands are putting increasingly competing pressures on the world’s land and ecosystems. A new report  by Birdlife Europe investigates those competing pressures on land in light of the climate and biodiversity crises, and the findings are crystal clear. Governments and industry must stop burning trees for bioenergy, and instead urgently set aside land for nature. Bioenergy is a false climate solution that adds emissions to the atmosphere and wipes out wildlife habitats. 
The way in which land is currently being used is already unsustainable. Our planet cannot afford to use more land to produce biomass, that ends up being burned for energy. In this report, BirdLife Europe proposes a set of principles to guide EU policies affecting future land use, so that they do not continue to fuel the climate and biodiversity crises.
