The Government is proposing to susidise bioenergy projects as it tries to meet renewable energy targets. Its plans, according to the RSPB, are potentially damaging to habitats and do not deliver necessary reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
By 12th Jauary, the RSPB are asking people to send a letter or email urging the Government to stop subsidies to large-scale energy-only plants. The details of what the problem is, what to say, and where to post it to can be found here. This campaign is by no means anti-biofuel, it is just anti the proposals as they stand.
