The trial over the lack of enviromental assesent and the encrochement on colonies of endangered Bachstein’s Bat by RWE during this cutting season has been postponed till the end of next month.   Bundis NRW the legal challenger in this suit has asked for a posponment to collect more evidence against RWE.   By doing so the start of the cutting season will be delayed further until after the end of Conference of Polluters 23 in Bonn.  The outcome of this trial will unfortunately only afect cutting in 2017 so even if verdict is against RWE it will only stop them for cutting in December.  However there is aready a trial also put forward to look at the cutting and deforestation plan put forth by RWE for 2018.  So most likely there will be another trial in December.  Save a date for both.
