On 5th February, a delegation from three US conservation groups will be visiting London to speak about the severe impacts which UK pellet imports are having on their country's forests.  They will present evidence of the threats which this new industry poses to the remnants of highly biodiverse coastal wetland forests as well as other forest ecosystems.

Drax is burning more wood pellets than any other power station in the world and the vast majority of those come from North America, especially from the southern US.  Drax is also burning more coal than any other power station in the UK and much of this coal comes from Colombia.  Richard Solly from the London Mining Network will report back from a recent visit to northern Colombia, where communities have been evicted and many more are suffering from pollution and water depletion resulting from the world's biggest opencast mine, Cerrejon.

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