Support the "Save Our Southern Forests" day of action: write to your MP

Take part here!

Conservation organisations in the US are holding a "Save Our Southern Forests" day of action today. Thousands of people will be sending an SOS to EU policy-makers, urging them to take action to stop the destruction of the world's most biodiverse temperate forests.

Right now, wood from clearcut wetland forests is being turned into pellets to supply UK power stations such as Drax with wood for electricity generation. Our demand for this dirty fuel is causing forest destruction in the southern US - let's stand in solidarity with campaigners demanding action there, and demand the same from our policy-makers.

Please take part in our online action by sending an email to your MP, asking them to ensure that no more support is given to big biomass power stations in the UK!

If you haven't already done so, please help us reach 2000 emails in our Green Investment Bank alert, by taking part here.

The Green Investment Bank highlighted its continued commitment to funding big biomass and waste incineration projects when it agreed to providing millions to two new destructive plants in the West Midlands and North Yorkshire last week. 

But we're determined to stop them getting involved in MGT Power's huge new biomass plant on Teesside. GIB finance could be make or break for the project - please join us in telling the bank to steer well clear of MGT Power!

Biofuels are a wide range of fuels which are in some way derived from biomass.
