Southall faces the prospect of a Power Station being built in the heart of a residential area. The proposed Power Station will consume 76,000 litres of virgin vegetable oil a day, which could be palm oil, the most destructive and cheapest agrofuel on the planet.
Judging by its record, it is questionable whether Ealing council will give any consideration to the damaging impact of this bio-fuel Power Station on air pollution, traffic, the environment, world hunger and human rights abuses. Be under no illusion, the primary motive behind council decisions when it comes to Southall is revenue-generation, and not resident’s well-being (as it would have you believe).
The decision on the planning application, filed by Blue NG, is expected to be made by the council in a meeting set for 22nd July 2009.
Let’s shake off the lethargy, and speak up against the continuing assault by Ealing on the quality of our environment and on the people of Southall! Please contact your local councillors and ask them to object to the proposal.
