A bit off-territory for this blog - but - I have mentioned it before. This does seem daft at best and at worst - well, read David Rose's article and perhaps do a little research and make your own mind up.
I have mentioned Drax before - and I will keep mentioning Drax - because it's a very prominent example of how innumerate (and utterly gormless) most of our public servants are - and how greedy, short sighted and subsidy hungry the large bureaucratic power utility companies are. As to the "environmentalists" who anoint this sort of folly with "Saving the Planet" - well..... they should be ashamed of themselves.
As I've mentioned before - the insane subsidy for burning wood to "save the planet" has actually driven up the price of construction timber - that simply does not seem right. This looks like Tulip mania.

EDIT: yet another waste facility has gone up in yet another major conflagration (fuel for waste recycling ??) - as Andrew Montford says: "with recyclers turning to ash at an alarming rate of knots you have to wonder if such pyrotechnics are not actually a bug, but instead are a feature of a system that bribes people to process low-value materials at high cost."
Oh yes... about two weeks to go.....
