Drax Re-power

Fossil fuels must stay in the ground if we are to have any chance of preventing runaway climate change. Gas is better than coal, but it is still not good.
Drax is one of the companies that emit the most carbon dioxide to produce energy.
They use biofuels that in some case come from clear-felled forests. They need to clean up their act and converting from coal to gas will not do this. Converting the power station will tie them in to burning oil for decades to come.
We need clean renewable energy.
I object to this planning proposal.
