Take DRAXtic Action on 24th April (London)

On the 24th April the CEL will be supporting biofuelwatch in their demonstration at the DRAX AGM in London.DRAX plans to convert its coal facility to dual-fuel burning biomass imported from abroad.  Although assurances have been given that this will be from sustainable sources, current plans for converting power stations to biomass will require many times more wood than is grown by this country every year.

Biofuels are associated with land grabbing, displaced communities and food price speculation, and emissions from biofuels are considered by many to be worse for climate change than coal.  Despite this they are classed an renewable fuels and subsidised by the UK government.

Jeremiah 22

15 “Does it make you a king
to have more and more cedar?
Did not your father have food and drink?
He did what was right and just,
so all went well with him.
16 He defended the cause of the poor and needy,
and so all went well.
Is that not what it means to know me?”
declares the Lord.
17 “But your eyes and your heart
are set only on dishonest gain,
on shedding innocent blood
and on oppression and extortion.”
