Drax Protest at BEIS

BEIS, London. Wed 17 Apr 2019



 Axe Drax protesters had come to BEIS - The Department for Business, Energy & Industiral Strategy

 calling for an end to subsidies for climate destroying power generation like Drax's biomass burning

 Drax is phasing out coal burning (though it still gets some subsidy for that) and wants to build a huge gas-fired

 generator - which would begin producing huge quantities of CO2 in 2025 - when XR calls for us to be Zero carbon

 Time is running out - and we need a rapid shift away from all carbon fuels

 and into real renewables like wind and solar - and to cut our energy use. Those subsidies should go on

 windfarms - especially onshore - on solar panels and on energy saving - insulation, higher building staqndards...

and we need to stop subsidising giant polluters like Drax.
