Money to Burn is a multi-media, cross-border investigation into unexpected consequences of Europe’s renewable energy on Estonian forests. The investigation is the first of its kind to map the international trade in woody biomass as a renewable fuel, tracing its path from forest to furnace. In the process, we reveal how Europe’s renewable energy policies are accelerating clear-cutting in protected natural areas, with disastrous consequences for the bloc’s ability to meet international climate goals.
