The bonfire of insanity: Woodland is shipped 3,800 miles and burned in Drax power station. It belches out more CO2 than coal at a huge cost YOU pay for… and all for a cleaner, greener Britain!

  • The wood for the pellets is transported from North Carolina, U.S.
  • Drax is swapping to pellets as it is deemed ‘carbon neutral’
