Funnily enough I’ve also had an email from Greenpeace asking me to sign a petition against the proposal.
Their take on it is: –
“I think it’s important to address this concern here.
Whether it’s steel manufacturers, energy producers, oil companies, transport networks or government policies – the fact is that to have any hope of avoiding the worst effects of the climate crisis we simply have to move away from fossil fuels.
Supporting the low-carbon production technologies that steel makers have developed is the best way to give the UK industry a viable future – much better than digging ourselves further into a high-carbon hole.
Early signs show that the coal from this mine won’t even be usable by UK steel producers in substantial proportions.”
Bucksiron or Greenpeace? Quite a dilemma!
