Drax is the UK’s biggest carbon emitter. The UK gov has already approved DRAX’s planning application and is clearly intending to lock us in to dirty tree burning energy for decades to come. Paid for by your energy bills!
The UK gov is now considering giving £billions more in subsidies to tree burning polluters Drax and Lynemouth. Drax is already receiving £1.7m per day from UK bill payers to burn trees whilst making record profits. According to the consultation, the cost of new subsidies to UK bill payers could be anything up to £2.5 billion a year. This is money that will not be available to support a transition to genuinely renewable wind and solar power.
We say: no more. No more wasting our money on dirty tree burning. No more funding of an industry that is driving environmental injustice, wrecking ecosystems and ruining our chances at a liveable future by destroying the very forests we need to absorb carbon emissions.
It’s more important now more than ever to put pressure on our government and let them know that we will not stand by whilst £billions more could be given to polluters! Join us to take action.
