Enviva, the world’s largest wood pellet manufacturer, is taking aim yet again at North Carolina’s forests and communities. This time, Enviva is applying to increase production in Northampton County, where Enviva’s facility is just one of many environmental injustices the community faces. Enviva’s proposed expansion will mean more logging, more pollution, and more carbon emissions. We must take a stand against dirty biomass!!North Carolina Governor Cooper has claimed to be a champion for the climate — last year, he signed Executive Order No. 80 — making a climate promise to reduce NC’s greenhouse gas emissions by 40%. But so far, Governor Cooper has turned a blind eye to the wood pellet industry. Does that sound like climate leadership to you? We need to send a strong message to Governor Cooper and NC Department of Environmental Quality that North Carolinians won’t stand for any expansion of this harmful industry.
