Transition Marlborough are partnering with Biofuelwatch to bring you “Burned: Are trees the new coal?” – a powerful documentary about forest destruction for biomass electricity and the subsidies that enable it.
Biofuelwatch is currently campaigning to get subsidies for burning wood in power stations revoked and redirected towards genuinely renewable energy. Biomass power station operators receive these subsidies (with Drax Power Station on its own receiving more than £2 million every day), despite the fact that it damages the climate, forests and communities.
Q&A with a Biofuelwatch representative at the end of the film.
FREE screening – donations welcomed to help cover costs’
