Make Sefton a Frack-free Zone

Make Sefton a Frack-free Zone

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.

Metropolitan Borough of Sefton

Reasons for signing

  • I believe in nature and fracking seems to be a way of undermining the natural formation of the Earth. Also the amount of water required for the process seems to ridicule the ''ban on hosepipes'' which happens nearly every summer.
  • The environment must come first. Renewables are a better option.
  • I don't believe fracking is safe.
