This film tells the story of the accelerating destruction of forests for fuel, and probes the policy loopholes, subsidies, and greenwashing of the burgeoning biomass electric power industry.

BURNED: Are Trees the New Coal?

BURNED: Are Trees the New Coal? is produced by Alan Dater and Lisa Merton of Marlboro Productions.
