Ban fracking in England

Ban fracking in England

Why is this important?

Fracking pollutes the water, destroys our countryside, and can cause earthquakes big enough to damage homes. The emissions from dirty energy pollute the air and cause climate change, endangering our precious environment.

Country after country has banned fracking, but our government still supports the fracking industry.

Sign the petition now, and call on the government to ban fracking to protect our communities and the environment from this dangerous form of energy extraction.

Reasons for signing

  • Climate crisis requires paradigm shift away from polluting energy production to clean green production with governments not just paying lip service.
  • Already proven to be dangerous (earth shudders) and will also impact on the environment. We should be going in the other direction and developing wind farms, etc. - not harming our land but using the sea for energy.
  • The damage fracking does to our countryside could cause damage . Could also be a cause for climate change
