Treehugger shared the tale yesterday of an Ohio law that lends the ‘renewable’ label to incineration projects burning trash and tires.

To echo our treehugging friends, this is a potentially disasterous precedent that could undo decades of progress made on the renewable energy front.

It’s reminiscent of our tire-burning battle (and victory) against cement giant Lafarge, where we effectively challenged their ill-equipped incineration plans being sold under a similar, green guise.

Rather than succumbing to the perplexing challenge posed by our mounting tire and waste problems, we need Ohio to light a fire under their legislators and correct this obvious greenwashing misstep.
