frack off
David Cameron claims that fracking could alleviate fuel poverty, but even his friends at Cuadrilla – the fracking company slated to cash in on the dash for gas – feel fracking’s impact on household bills will be ‘basically insignificant.’
What we do know is that fracking is being used to justify up to forty new gas power stations and that extracting new fossil fuel deposits is likely to make climate change worse. It will also require tens of thousands of new wells in Lancashire alone, scarring the natural landscape wherever shale gas is exploited.
