Where are they going to get the waste products?
Logging is not enough anymore. The dairies are fewer.
This is the beginning of the Global Warming Chit, right?

Oh My doG. Biomass is defined as an energy source made of organic material from plants and animals. They are going to use people!

LOL, its. Sounds like the expansion will bring more jobs, and it's green energy too. Not much to hate here, although I'm sure someone will think up something.

On a recent outing which traversed mile after mile of Forest Service and Sierra Pacific lands I've concluded that there is more than enough forest bio -mass to run all the Nor -Cal plants for gawd knows how long.

Some of slash piles were larger than my three bedroom house and there were literally hundreds of said piles. One such pile which was larger than my house was made up of what we call “pecker -poles”. Those are trees up to twelve inches diameter.

When we inquired with the timber company doing the logging for Sierra Pacific as to what they were going to do with the piles, they informed us the piles were to be burned. Same answer from the Forest Service.

Such a waste of material that could be salvaged and used as bio -mass and to a lesser degree some that could be utilized by a mini -mill/fence -post operation.

Shame on the Forest Service, Sierra Pacific. And shame on the Air Resources Control Board if burn permits are issued.

I know, Sol, you've told me a hundred times before. People were better, the world was better...

Sol: Ah, people were always lousy... But there was a world, once.
[Thorn chuckles]
Sol: I was there, I can prove it! When I was a kid, you could buy meat anywhere! Eggs they had, real butter! Not this... crap!

General "Buck" Turgidson: Doctor, you mentioned the ratio of ten women to each man. Now, wouldn't that necessitate the abandonment of the so-called monogamous sexual relationship, I mean, as far as men were concerned?
Dr. Strangelove: Regrettably, yes. But it is, you know, a sacrifice required for the future of the human race. I hasten to add that since each man will be required to do prodigious... service along these lines, the women will have to be selected for their sexual characteristics which will have to be of a highly stimulating nature.
Ambassador de Sadesky: I must confess, you have an astonishingly good idea there, Doctor

It's people. Soylent Green is made out of people. They're making our food out of people. Next thing they'll be breeding us like cattle for food. You've gotta tell them. You've gotta tell them!

Hatcher: I promise, Tiger. I promise. I'll tell the exchange.
Det. Thorn: You tell everybody. Listen to me, Hatcher. You've gotta tell them! Soylent Green is people! We've gotta stop them somehow!

holy peace kind,
the smoke stack is for sending smoke signals with the indians & those aquainted with that art, like morse code, for many travel the same roads, paths as their ancestors. utilizing the waste heat will cause lack of steam, for people to read what their ancient ancestors have to say concerning these trees once inhabited the whole planet, are the tallest trees on earth, live some 2,000 years, wide enough to drive a car through, related to other trees in california that live twice as long, up to 4,000 years of age, but not as high as the 370 feet these trees boast in their very tiny ecosystem, up to 15 miles inland, up to 3,000 feet, & only mostly in northern california coast.
what shall our great great god father say to us whom wanted us to be religious in keeping his law for all ages to come, like noah just got off the boat some 3,000 years ago, though the universe is said to be about 13 billion years old as to recent creation.

just how organic can you get burning old growth cuttings that are fire resistant. i'd think that waste heat is comforting to life all around, showing a sign of life by emitting heat from organic material , like we are a new hot spring arising out of the ground from the techtonic plates friction happening in the vacinity. how about 1/2 is recycled, the other half left as is.

now i'm not in favor of air pollution, but tell that to the volcanos like mt. st. helen. it seems little air pollution is happening, its about being a tight wad, seeing every cent is cut that can be, even if it stopps economy that started it up, smoke signals. how many hot springs been utilized to send smoke signals besides fire pits.

well i hope you reconsider, privatization by outsiders aren't always in ones best interest. i'd give yourselves time, to find out other outlets to learn to bring in income while old growth harvest is being minimilized by lack of. building furniture, living off legends of the baddest lumber mill the earth has ever known, there must be a fortune in that! that should allow you to appeal the bankruptcy decision, because they speedied it along, like animal human mammals can change ways of survival faster then the judgement of court that didn't loose its way of living, like those dependant on old growth forests to harvest because the demand for such water resistant, fire resistant, disease resistant lumber is very great in growing populating earth surface of human mammals whom has eyes looking into outerspace living sooner then imagined by earliar generation, people on the moon in less then 10 years of the new space programs announcement by the president of the u.s.a. john fitzgerald kennedy. holy peace kind

It's not entirely useless. There is some benefit, being that the ash releases minerals back into the soil. Particularly nitrogen. Although it's kind of a wash not getting more potential out of their own trash.

Make a deal with them over the slash piles. Tell them "I'll give you x $$ per pile or ton and I get it off your hands just allow me on the properties to go retrieve it". You potentially could make a new business of sorts. Lots of people not in California would pay bank for redwood rail fencing.

This has to be the lamest posts ever...of all time. I'm sure you typed this, viewing through a cloud of smoke, and thought it was your moment of clarity (the only one of the day). However, all your words did was make my brain hurt and pray that your sterile. And for the sake of others who might read your ripped-off dribble--use spell-check.

Does anyone know if this plant will tap into the wind farm on bear river ridge? I know that was one of the options for the wind farm to plug into the grid. Doesn't sound like any jobs will be created or lost.

I'm sure these will go into Obama's "jobs saved" column.
