We the undersigned urge Sefton MBC to put an immediate ban on any type of conventional or unconventional oil or gas exploration, to protect our environment and promote renewable energy. We urge the council to make Sefton a frack-free zone.
Why is this important?
Unconventional oil and gas extraction (“fracking”) will have an impact on our countryside, climate and local communities. It uses vast quantities of fresh water and chemicals and, as we have seen in America and Australia, this type of extraction has a detrimental impact on our natural resources, the environment, health, noise and air pollution, traffic and local communities. Fracking has also been known to cause earthquakes. The people of Sefton do not want this type of extraction taking place in any part of the borough.
