Today Greenpeace with two Thai key senate representatives held a press conference on the issue of Gecko-One coal power plant. Greenpeace flagship Rainbow Warrior’s peaceful protest yesterday at the controversial new coal plant in Rayong, has encouraged two key representatives of the ‘Natural resource and Environment Commission’ and the ‘Sub-Commission on Good Governance of the Senate’, to call for immediate halt on the construction of the Belgian owned GHECO-One coal plant. The senate representatives have also questioned the nation’s energy policy and decision-making process for its Power Development Plan (PDP). Greenpeace is demanding massive investments in tapping the huge renewable energy potential while putting in place effective energy efficiency systems.
