Nuclear and Biofuels Come Under Fire as Energy SolutionsAs Bristol freezes under a blanket of snow, we Bristolians will be reaching for the dial to up the heating - but we also need to consider where the energy of the future will come from in the face of the issues of Peak Oil and Climate Change... Robert Palgrave of Biofuelwatch writes: W4B is planning power stations in Avonmouth and Portland. Each will consume tens of thousands of tonnes of palm oil a year to produce so-called renewable electricity. Councils decide in January whether the power stations get permission. W4B is saying that it will use Jatropha oil instead of Palm oil once there are adequate supplies. It claims that Jatropha can be grown on marginal land and with little water. The truth from India is that Jatropha is not a miracle biomass crop - it does not give the promised yields, and small farmers are being bullied / conned into growing it, impacting on their ability to grow much-needed food.

Jim Duffy of Stop Hinkley writes: Top environmentalist Professor Tom Burke CBE is giving a boost to Stop Hinkley's campaign to oppose Hinkley C by speaking at a public meeting together with Greenpeace's Ben Ayliffe. Later Jonathon Porritt will also speak in Taunton: 'Nuclear Power: Do we need it?' Prof Tom Burke CBE & Ben Ayliffe, Head of Greenpeace nuclear team, Town Hall, High Street, Bridgwater, Wednesday 6th January 2010 7.30pm.

Free all the climate justice Prisoners in Copenhagen! Stop police states and repressive capitalist summits!
Many Bristolians are among those protesting on the streets of Copenhagen and being subject to preventative detentions designed to intimidate and scare people away from protesting in solidarity with the global south for a tough and binding reduction on greenhouse gas emissions. With the leader of the G77 block of developing nations yesterday said 'It has become clear that the Danish presidency - in the most undemocratic fashion - is advancing the interests of the developed countries at the expense of the balance of obligations between developed and developing countries," as talks came to a temporary halt.
During the 'Global Day of Action' in Copenhagen on Saturday - where up to 100,000 climate justice activists were protesting against the failing UN climate summit - Danish police indiscriminately made a mass arrests of 968 activists. They have expressed severe physical discomfort and have no access to water, medical attention or toilet facilities. Many are reported to have urinated themselves while detained on the ground. The next day, during the “Hit the Production” demo on Sunday. Without any provocation, the police charged violently at the crowd and began more than 250 arrests, forcing people to sit on the ground in 2 degree temperatures while cuffed. The scenes seem to be an exact repetition of the human rights violations from the day before. A video of some of these events is below.
In Copenhagen, the 16th will be the day for a mass action at the Summit itself! Our goal is to disrupt the sessions and open a space inside the UN area to hold a People's Assembly. The assembly will give a voice to those who are not being heard, it will be an opportunity to change the agenda, to discuss the real solutions. After 15 years of negotiations and no real solutions to the climate crisis, we say enough! No more markets based solutions, no to corporate greed and short term politics deciding our future! No to colonialism and the land-grabs taking place in local and indigenous communities!
JOIN US AND TAKE ACTION ANYWHERE YOU ARE TO RECLAIM POWER OVER OUR OWN FUTURE! Call for international solidarity! Take actions simultaneously! Protest against unjust arrests, police violence and capitalist summit.
