I re-posted it in order to add the following comment by Col N.:
Col N.: “Pls sign Tell the Forest Industry our Forests aren't Fuel. I have personally seen something of the security at a "Drax Plant" in Yorkshire, England. Situated on the banks of the river Ouse. It is windowless & built like a fortress. It's trains (carrying the wood pellets) look like steel military tanks & they arrive at the plant constantly. The river Ouse is tidal. Opposite the plant is a Sea Barrage lock (to take boaters off the tidal Ouse onto the river Derwent). Just recently, a group of holiday cannoeists stopped for a rest on the banks of the river Ouse, near to the Sea Barrage & opposite the Drax Plant. Their intentions were to have a picnic. Instead, police cars arrived with sirens blazing... they were all arrested & taken away. One of the canoeists, asked the lock keeper if he'd keep an eye on their stuff. The lock keeper was also interviewed by the police... he was shocked to find that the DRAX plant security had summoned the police to have the canoists arrested. He said to us "these people do not anyone near the plant!" This is really happening...we live in a world of secrecy & lies about how our energy is being produced. Most of the population lives in blissful ignorance."

Signed and noted:
DRAX operate in the UK and this was a posting earlier this year (around the same time as the canoeists were arrested (see Michela quote above)... › Shares › London Stock Exchange › Drax Group Plc‎
Jul 30, 2013 - British coal-fired power producer Drax posted a sharp decline in half-year profit on Tuesday, blaming high costs of meeting carbon emissions

This company is only interested in profits... not in providing clean energy. We are all being conned massively - we must stop this outrage of destroying our forests... Please, if you are concerned about the future of our forests... join Michela's group "ORANGUTANS, MEN OF THE FOREST"
This is one of the best groups on Care 2 for finding petitions against forest destruction, palm oil and endangerd animals.
