Our paper here in Western Ma. has a story today about a 50 megawatt wood burning plant that is proposed for a site about 10 miles from here. It will be built from Scratch and will burn 500,000 tons/year, all cut from a 75 mile radius of here. This is fine with me! I like the idea of a renewable and honegrown fuel. However, the story mentions opposition to the plant, from those who oppose the increased truck traffic and the additional pollution. As we've discussed before, if we want energy we have to pay the price. In my opinion, this plant is needed and is much better than our other local generator, the "dirty coal" Mt. Tom power plant. We have to be willing to tolerate certain things in our backyard if we want the power to stay on. BTW, the plant is located on part of a 70 acre complex that is a former paper mill, so it's not like they are going to develop new land for it.
