Industrial Wind Farm:

BW Energy Report: Click to Enlarge Image

The BW Energy report on the conversion of Moneypoint power station from burning coal to UN certified sustainable biomass will be launched tomorrow Tuesday the 15th of March 2016 in Buswells Hotel at 11am. The report has now been peer reviewed, and will show that we can build a domestic supply chain. Instead of our tax money leaving the country to pay for German and Danish wind turbines, we could be paying Irish farmers to grow biomass, putting real money into the rural economy rather than swelling the coffers of the wind barons.

Global Frackdown Month -- November 2015:

Since 2012, the Global Frackdown – an international day of action initiated by Food & Water Watch to ban fracking – has helped connect activists across the globe and demonstrated the growing power of the movement to stop fracking, gas infrastructure, sand mining and other related extraction methods.

Global Frackdown originated as a single international day of action per year, in 2015 the Global Frackdown will occur during the entire month of November in the lead up to the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Paris, France. The “Global Frackdown to Paris” will serve to highlight our growing movement and build pressure on national leaders to oppose fracking.

Sign the Global Anti-Fracking Petition.
