About this Event

St Andrews Devizes with Sustainable Devizes and Extinction Rebellion Devizes & Marlborough invite you to a screening of BURNED at St Andrews Church Devizes.

BURNED: Are Trees the New Coal? is a feature-length documentary, which takes an unwavering look at the latest energy industry solution to climate change. The film tells the story of how woody biomass has become the fossil-fuel industry’s renewable, green savior, and of the people and parties who are both fighting against and promoting its adoption and use.

Through interviews with activists, experts, and citizens, along with verité-style footage shot across the U.S. and in the EU and UK, the film interweaves the science of climate change, the escalating energy-policy disputes, the dynamics of forest ecology, the biomass industry practices, the conflict between jobs and trees, and the actions of activists and citizens who are working to protect their own health, their communities, the forest, and the planet’s climate.

Woven together, the various stories present an intimate and visceral account of what is at this moment in time a critical, yet mostly unknown, national and international controversy.

Doors open 7.15pm for 7.30pm start.

Refreshments available. For more information or to book a seat visite our Eventbrite page here  

Free event but donations to cover costs welcome.

Episodic therapy is not appropriate for all people. Because of a high efficiency and security, suppressive treatment is becoming more common. The view was expressed that suppressive treatment, decreasing the asymptomatic virus release, may stop the dissemination of infection.

A representative of Biofuelwatch will be present and will be encouraging those attending to meet their MP to raise this issue. The film is about 45 minutes long, giving us time for socialising and planning afterwards.
