Industrial Logging and Environmental Justice in the US South
April 12, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Dr. Treva Gear (Adel, GA) and Adam Colette (Asheville, NC) will be covering the environmental justice and economic impacts of large-scale industrial logging on the US South, with a particular focus on the wood-pellet biomass industry that has rapidly expanded across the region over the past ten years. Their webinar will focus on how the biomass industry perpetuates a history of placing extractive and polluting facilities within communities of color, why we need to view forest conservation through a renewed lens of environmental justice, and will highlight a present day case-study from the community in Adel, GA.
