The film “BURNED” shows how the UK damages forests, communities and the climate by supporting the mass burning of trees for biomass energy.

BURNED tells the little-known story of the accelerating destruction of our forests for fuel, and probes the policy loopholes, huge subsidies, and green-washing of the biomass industry. The film focuses on the cutting of forests in the south-eastern US, which are then shipped to Europe to be burned primarily in Drax Power Station in Yorkshire, the largest biomass power station in the world.

After the film, we’ll have a discussion about the issues raised in the film, including how you can help redirect huge renewable subsidies from biomass power stations towards genuine renewables.

All welcome – do come along with your questions and comments.

Jointly organised by Transition Town Kingston and Biofuelwatch. This is a FREE event with tickets available from this Eventbrite page. You can also visit our facebook page here to register your interest.
