David Cameron has promised that his would be the 'Greenest government -ever'.
Yet he has come out in clear support of fracking, a new way of extracting yet one more dirty fossil fuel.
The government is ignoring communities in it's dash for cash and ignoring the fact that fracking will:-
a. scar the British countryside and risk contaminating water supplies
b. stop the UK from achieving agreed climate change targets
c. be highly unlikely to bring down domestic fuel bills, even after many years
d. divert scarce investment away from clean, renewable energy.
If this concerns you at all, sign the petition to the Prime Minister here: http://www.foe.co.uk/get_involved/fracking_petition_41121.html and then please pass this link ( or just pass on: www.schistehappens.blogspot.com ) to as many contacts as possible. Thank you.
