Drax Re-power

Dear Sir
Every single peer-read revue of the climate situation says we humans are putting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than the earth can sustain without creating catastrophic climate change. Indeed the UK is committed to reducing it's carbon footprint. If granted, the DRAX repower application to replace coal burning units with natural gas would completely flys in the face not only of all the science, but of the UK's National Planning Policy Framework for sustainable development, since it is entirely incompatible with a transition to a low-carbon future.
On those grounds, and on behalf of the unborn generations that have no means to vote, let alone fight, for a healthy planet to be born on, I wish to register my strongest possible objection to this application.
yours sincerely
