You are mostly correct about the biomass business. Where you are wrong is that it is even worse than you suspect. There is a wood-pellet Mafia, there really is. I was offered and refused a directorship in a biomass company around 10 years ago. I preferred to work as a consultant instead, which I did for a while. Unfortunately the more investigating I did as part of my role the more I realised that it was just a game for making money, and nothing to do with environmental protection at all, so I got out.
A documentary that was recently published for free in YouTube focused in the biomass energy industry as a part of the green energy movement.
It’s hard to watch and will probably shatter many illusions, but is inline with what Alan Smith is saying, that the biomass industry is just a money making scheme.
If anything, this documentary makes The case for LENR being even more necessary than most would want to acknowledge.
