Dartmouth Biomass Project: Impacts on Climate and the Community

Dartmouth College is planning to switch to burning biomass and biodiesel to heat the campus. Biomass is bad for our health and bad for the climate and we’re calling on Dartmouth to stop this plan.

Biomass (especially from wood) has devastating effects. Incineration releases more carbon at a time when we need to be doing everything we can to prevent the worst effects of climate change. And people who live near these polluters are at a higher risk for asthma, heart disease and cancer just from breathing the air.

It’s time to transition to clean, local, renewable energy instead of fossil fuels and polluting energy like biomass. Sign the petition to demand that Dartmouth College stops their biomass plan!
