We must not allow the UK Government to sanction this ecocidal practice on our shores.
DECC (the Department of Energy and Climate Change) has issued a deeply irresponsible, inaccurate and misleading report asserting that fracking is safe. It is manifestly clear – from corporate structures and government appointments etc, that many of our legislators are misled by and/or in league with the industry.
It is now down to the British public – every one of us – to exercise our diplomatic rights to express our outrage at cynical moves to further this energy procurement technique that threatens to harm us all.
Pressingly, please object formally to the critical English precedent of UK Methane’s application to frack for Coal Bed Methane near Bristol: guide-to-objecting-uk-methane-application-keynsham-somerset
Please write to your MP/ MEPs / Councillors to express your disquiet about our government’s deeply irresponsible “Dash for Gas”
Details here of points to note in your objection, and template letters to MPs/MEPs and Parish/District/County Councillors are linked below.
Please also go to the 38 Degrees website here and vote for them to get behind the campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of fracking. Add comments too, to help them understand how important it is to get behind this campaign.

Write to your Water Authorities/Companies, give them encouragement and ask their position on the threat that hydraulic fracturing poses to our water supplies. For more info, click here.
Adapt and send this letter to any Parish, District/Town Councillors in the UK. The drilling/fracking permissions/licenses have been getting through, partly through euphemistic subterfuge and partly because our Local Govmnt Representatives didn’t know what they were saying yes to. LETS’ MAKE SURE THEY NOW KNOW WHAT TO SAY NO TO!
(Use this quick tool to locate your District & County Councilors’ addresses)
Use this template letter to write to your MP/MEP, local businesses, Schools, Kindergartens, Hospitals, Councils, Wildlife Trusts, Water Companies, Farms etc… and anyone else you can think of … to raise awareness of threatened fracking.
You could also email our local MP, Francis Maude, and tell him your thoughts about Hydraulic Fracturing in the village – email@example.com
Especially in the light of this revelation about Mr Maude’s appointment to the Cabinet Office, of Lord Browne, Director of Cuadrilla Holdings.
