UK: How to save the planet — burn forests!
Drax Group Plc will spend $1 billion to turn the U.K.’s biggest coal-fired plant into western Europe’s largest clean- energy producer. The U.K. utility plans to convert one of the facility’s six units to burn wood pellets by June, Chief Executive Officer Dorothy Thompson said in an interview. Drax at a later date plans to switch over two more units to the fuel, investments that if completed would mean the facility harvests a forest four times the size of Rhode Island each year.
Funny how stupid rules always lead to unintended consequences, isn’t it? What happens when the wood runs out? UK householders, please put all your paper money in brown bags and form an orderly queue.
