Against Fracking at Great Altcar

Against Fracking at Great Altcar

We the undersigned urge Lancashire County Council to refuse planning consent to Aurora Energy Resources Ltd. for an exploratory wellsite on the Moss near Great Altcar for the purpose of Fracking (hydraulic fracturing) for shale gas.

Why is this important?

There is a surplus of gas available to the UK even without shale gas exploration and the UK can satisfy its energy requirements using offshore resources and renewables. Shale gas will undermine the country’s climate change obligations and harvesting the gas presents unacceptable risks to the environment and the health of local residents and will consume and contaminate freshwater resources.

Reasons for signing

  • Fracking will pollute our environment , speed up climate change ,increase earthquake and subsidence risks ,turn our countryside into a baron , industrialised 24-7 noisy eye sore, contaminate our water (as it has done in US),pollute the air we breathe, damage our health + our wildlife , clog up our roads 24-7 with huge lorries. We could be energy self sufficient if our Government invested in renewable energy - we are surrounded by sea/ water + wind!
  • fracking is dangerous and backward - we have to embrace sustainable energy NOW!!
  • This is a dangerous technology. We can have no way of knowing the long term effects of fracking, although the damaging experiences at Blackpool and in the USA should serve as a warning.
