The world is watching as  the largest rain forest on the planet burns in South America.  Part of the cause is speculators who clear land after it’s been logged, by setting fire to it, sparking wildfires in the process.

In the U.S., leftovers from logging operations are instead, being used to create renewable energy.  A new, 3-year, east coast wide study will explore environmental and economic best practices.
