Fridays For Future Nasu started this petition to First Solar, Inc. and

Preserve our beautiful and important forest! - Is it CLEAN to build a mega solar power plant through deforestation ?

 

 In our town, Nasu, in the middle of Japan, the destructive plan to cut trees in an area of 37 ha and build the mega solar power plant is currently a work in progress. Our town is surrounded by magnificent mountains. We can farm fresh vegetables and drink natural water thanks to the surrounding forests. There are numerous precious flowers and birds that are an important part of the ecosystem.

 

 Our aim is to solve the climate crisis, which is why we agree with green energy. However, is it necessary to build a mega solar plant through deforestation? There are plenty of abandoned fields in Nasu and we know other ways to improve our energy consumption by installing solar panels on our own rooftops.

 

 The company in charge of this plan is “First Solar, Inc.” which is a multinational corporation in the United States. How could they understand our unique environment and lifestyle? They ignore the voices of the habitants and will commence their plan of deforestation in March 2020. The benefit will not even return to our own town.

 

If this business plan goes forth, there will be some severe consequences.

1. The capacity to absorb rain will decrease which will affect the local precipitation.

2. The artificial pond might flood when a typhoon hits.

3. Ecosystems will be destroyed.

 

We must declare climate emergency now! It's growing increasingly important to adopt appropriate ways to recycle resources in the local community. We often believe think companies know what is truly clean and listen to our voices. But that is far from the truth in this case as they only want self gain in this project.

 

We need you to make a louder noise! Please sign this petition to conserve our beautiful nature.
