Food Secure Canada, December 2010

The world’s biggest corporations are rushing to grab and convert living plant matter — called “biomass” — into fuel, chemicals, and other profitable products. This new “biomass economy” represents a trillion dollar industry but it will not feed the people or stop climate change. In order to shed light on this new economy, farm leaders from the Global South participated in a public forum to share their reality and propose alternatives.
