2011 Annual Meeting
Biomass? Coal? Clarifying “Clean” in the Energy DebateSunday, April 10 at 3:30 PMSchlafly Tap Room2100 Locust St., St. Louis, MO
As Missouri confronts its dependence on coal and seeks renewable alternatives, “biomass” is emerging as part of the mix. Before Missouri has invested sufficiently in wind, solar, hydro and energy efficiency, our state is facing proposals for 32-40 megawatt power plants fueled by forest-based biomass. How clean are these plants?
Please join us for an examination of Missouri’s energy priorities as we compare our energy options.
- What are the air pollution impacts from biomass v. coal?
- Is forest biomass sustainable?
- What is clean, renewable biomass?
- How can we secure our coal-free energy future?
Annual Meeting will also include Board of Directors elections, door prizes and updates on MCE’s program work.
*Free* Members and non-members are welcome and encouraged to attend. Please RSVP online if you plan on attending.

Eating Lightly is a collection of over 400 vegetarian and vegan recipes from friends of the Missouri Coalition for the Environment, ranging from the family of the Missouri Botanical Garden’s Pat and Peter Raven to some of Missouri’s most creative professional chefs to your next-door neighbor. Not only have contributors shared favorite recipes but, often, the stories behind them. This is a cookbook with personality! Eight Missouri artists have contributed work to make Eating Lightly a visual feast as well.
