This is how absurd it gets in climate alarmist politics. Considered Britain’s biggest CO2 polluter, Drax in North Yorkshire is suing the UK government after they have lost a lucrative contract when a media investigation revealed that they had stopped burning coal and are burning wood pellets from US forests as a “green” alternative to coal. The government had agreed to pay double for power generated this way, but withdrew the offer when it was made public that it was shipping biomass pellets 3,000 miles from North Carolina forests.

Environmentalists say endangered species, habitats, greenhouse gases.

Ministers have withdrawn their promise to guarantee profits for the part of the plant using biomass.

That wiped £400 million off the company’s share price and prompted the company to start legal action.
