Biofuel company Edgley Green Power (EGP) has submitted plans for a 32 MW biofuel power station in Shoreham-by-Sea. The power station will burn up to 50,000 tonnes of biofuels a year. That’s 13,950,000 gallons of fuel. To help you visualise this, imagine the exhaust fumes from 5000 transit vans each driving 94,860 miles up and […]

The blockade of the EQT site in Pennsylvania’s Moshannon State Forest was trying to stop the further destruction of Pennsylvania’s state forests — more than half of which have already been leased for drilling […]
