Resumé

Der er brug for nytænkning inden for miljø-, energi- og klimapolitikkerne. Til vurderingen af reduktionspolitikken for toksiske forbindelser er Stockholmkonventionen om persistente organiske forurenende stoffer (POPs) uundværlig. Danmarks funktion som foregangsland i dioxinforskning inden for OSPAR konventionen bliver stillet over for en klimapolitik, hvis målsætning om CO2-reduktion er blevet operationaliseret gennem green-wash. Der argumenteres for en devaluering af CO2-neutraliteten i tilfælde træforbrænding. Alternative praktiske løsninger som kulstof-opbevaring i højkvalitets træprodukter og/eller intensiveret naturnær skovdrift bliver anbefalet. En kontraproduktiv effekt af dioxindannelse i kølefasen af brændeovne er blevet observeret, som svarer til de-novo-syntesen i byernes affaldsforbrændingsanlæg. Forskere, regulerende myndigheder og offentligheden er imidlertid endnu optaget af forestillinger om ovndesign og driftsparametre ud fra en antagelse af, at dioxin opfører sig på linje med andre toksiske forurenende stoffer der stammer fra ufuldstændig forbrænding. Indikationer er anført for, at dette ikke er tilfælde.- Samfundsmæssigt-historiske problemer med den manglende konsistens i dioxinforskningen bliver sat over for mere bæredygtige tilgange.
