Event description
BURNED shows how the UK is damaging forests, communities and the climate by supporting the mass burning of trees for biomass energy.

About this Event

Hosted by Greenpeace Bath

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.

In the Southeastern US, trees are being cut down and shipped to Europe to be burned primarily in Drax Power Station in Yorkshire, the largest biomass power station in the world. Far from the renewable energy source the industry claims it to be, biomass can be as much or more polluting than coal, and the clear-felling of trees is having devastating effects for nearby communities and the surrounding biodiversity.

7.30 - Doors Open

8.00 - Screening begins

The screening will be followed by a discussion with Fran from Biofuelwatch and some announcements about what you can do to get involved, along with upcoming actions both locally and nationally.
