Burning wood to create power is a ‘scandal’, 50 MPs warn the energy minister in a letter today.

The letter – which has cross-party support – marks a major shift in political opinion over the burning of biomass, which is currently classed by the Government as a green form of energy.

The letter says the extra emissions produced by biomass ‘are the equivalent of three million Ford Fiestas on our roads’.
