Following the granting of exploratory licences for unconventional shale gas in penistone and stocksbridge , we the undersigned oppose the prospect of fracking in penistone and stocksbridge and call upon Angela Smith to call for a ban on fracking in our area.

Why is this important?

We are concerned that fracking could

Contaminate our water supply
Pollute the air with hazardous chemicals
Cause earthquakes
Reduce the value of our homes
Increase our insurance premiums
Make our roads less safe by increasing heavy traffic
Leak methane which is a potent greenhouse gas 80 times more powerful than carbon dioxide
Cause illness in the local population
Increase noise and light pollution from drilling operations and traffic movement
Cause industrialisation of countryside and adversley affect wildlife corridors
Adversely effect local tourism and agriculture

Fracking is bad for our environment, bad for our communities and we call upon Angela Smith MP to support our campaign for a ban on fracking in our area.

How it will be delivered

In person

Penistone and Stocksbridge area

Reasons for signing

  • as She is pro fracking.. vice chair of the all party oil and gas group! Will she be able to respond to what the people believe or has she circled to smooching lobbyists of the industry.
  • So many reason why this practie should be illegal. Do some research and see for your self. No one in their right mind would support this except the corporations and their political puppets.
  • I have signed because the more I read about it the more I think this is the biggest threat to our environment, wild life and public health in my lifetime. we should be funding effective ways of storing Solar Power, calling for legislation to make all new build carbon neutral .
