Group to hold discussion of biomass power plants July 8 in Marquette

MARQUETTE -- A meeting to discuss the impending biomass-burning power plants in the Upper Peninsula will be held at 7 p.m. TONIGHT, Thursday, July 8, in the Lion's Room at the Peter White Library in Marquette.

The meeting will include a brief presentation and informal discussion on why biomass is the opposite of green energy, how it's being driven forward by billions in government subsidies and how citizens can stop these plants before they get started.

The meeting is being organized by Save the Wild UP and Jeff Gibbs, who organized a group who put a stop to up to five of these plants being built in Traverse City.
