Logging old growth is bad enough – logging forests for wood pellets is unforgivable.
Last month, shocking documentaries from BBC and CBC revealed that UK-based energy giant Drax was logging forests in B.C. and shipping them halfway around the world to burn for electricity while claiming to use only waste wood.
Since these scandalous exposés, Drax executives are feeling the heat. Investors are dropping like flies and public officials could be next if we sustain public pressure.
Decision makers in British Columbia need to feel pressure to do the right thing: cut ties with Drax. The province has the most power over sourcing for forest biomass – namely, the Chief Forester Shane Berg who is responsible for deciding who gets to log, how much and where. So let’s make sure Berg, Minister of Forests Conroy and incoming Premier Eby hear us loud and clear.
Send an email calling Berg, Conroy and Eby to stop allowing forests from B.C. to be burned for electricity by corporations like Drax.
