Drax Re-power

Received 23 August 2018
From Kate Griffin


I am objecting as a British subject because Drax is already this country's biggest carbon dioxide emitter and there is no way it should be permitted to increase its carbon emissions. Replacing the coal-fired units with bigger units burning natural gas is in no way compatible with the UK government's supposed aim of "delivering a low carbon future". It is also completely incompatible with global targets to tackle climate change.

Please refuse the application on these grounds.

Yours faithfully,
Kate Griffin
