McKibben: "There could not be a more stupid or suicidal way to produce energy [than biomass]."
Internationally known author and climate activist Bill McKibben joined us in Fall 2023 for a screening of the film "Burned: Are Trees the New Coal?" and made his feelings known about the expansion of Burlington's McNeil biomass power plant.
Sign the Petition: Say NO to Dirty Energy! Stop the McNeil Biomass Plant Expansion
Join the rising chorus demanding that Burlington and the UVM Medical Center say “NO” to District Energy. We deserve real climate solutions, NOT more pollution and greenwashing. Burlington City Council approved the steam pipe on November 20, 2023, but there is still an Act 250 process and many other steps before this ill-advised project could become a reality. Your opposition matters, even if you're not from Burlington, or even not from Vermont!
