About this Event

Did you know that UK power stations currently receive over £1 billion in UK renewable subsidies to burn trees as biomass energy? But is burning trees in power stations really renewable energy and what impact is the UK biomass industry having on forests around the world?

To find out more, please join Biofuelwatch and Climate Friendly Bradford on Avon for an online screening of the award-winning documentary "Burned: are trees the new coal?" with special guest speakers.

We'll also have time for a discussion about how we can take action to protect forests. Everyone is welcome!

BURNED explores the biomass industry in the Southern USA, and how Drax Power Station in Yorkshire is a major player in tree burning across the world. The film tells the story of how woody biomass has become the fossil fuel industry's latest attempt to greenwash itself as part of the climate solution, and of the people and parties who are both fighting against and promoting its adoption and use. It also explores how government subsidies are propping up the industry.
