I have just signed a petition at SumofUs.org asking the UK government not to spend £80 million of taxpayers’ money on pro-fracking research, and I would encourage others to sign it as well. You can sign by visiting this link:
Yesterday, the fracking industry lost an important battle: Parliament voted to ban fracking our national parks. But the fight is anything but over: The government did not ban fracking altogether and it still wants to spend £80 million of taxpayers’ money to persuade us that fracking is safe — which it isn’t. Affected communities around the world have shown us that fracking pollutes the groundwater and air, is dangerous for our health, and emits large amounts of greenhouse gas.
