Oslo needs your trash. The city of Oslo in Norway heats about half of their buildings by burning trash. They are experiencing a shortage of waste to burn, because their energy demands are rising and they depend on the availability of garbage. They are already importing trash from England, Ireland and Sweden. Many countries in Europe generate energy by burning trash, so the demand is much larger than the supply. People who are against incinerator power plants say that they create more carbon dioxide pollution than coal plants. The chairman of Norway’s oldest environmental group, an affiliate of the Friends of the Earth said: “From an environmental point of view, it’s a huge problem. There is pressure to produce more and more waste, as long as there is this overcapacity.” Some power plants exist in the US that generate energy by burning waste. There have been around 100 proposals to build trash incinerators in the US over the past six years. What do you think? Is burning trash a good way to produce sustainable energy?
