Ban fracking in the central belt of Scotland

Ban fracking in the central belt of Scotland

We the undersigned wish to petition every Scottish council to not allow planning permission to any fracking companies who apply for it.

Why is this important?

This is one of the most dangerous practices out there, and we want it banned in Scotland! It poisons the water table, could cause tremors, and destroys the ecosystem. We have to protect one of the purest water supplies in the world.

Reasons for signing

  • Isn't the UK meant to be reducing its dependence on fossil fuels?
  • Unless we know the long term effects we cannot know if this will effect property and the environment (at large). Furthermore, who owns the land beneath my house? To what depth do we own the land?
  • Fracking is banned in France, because they want to protect their wine, bottled water and food industries. Scotland has fantastic bottled water and precious Whiskey so we should guard our environment and our children's futures every bit as fiercely as the french. It should also be noted that many of the firms with the fracking technology are french but they will not frack in their own country!!
