No Fracking in Amber Valley

No Fracking in Amber Valley

We ask Mr Nigel Mills to reverse the licenses granted for the exploratory drilling for shale gas deposits which could eventually lead to full scale fracking sites.

Why is this important?

We are told that Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking) will create jobs and lower your energy prices. While this is extremely debatable and has been discredited by many authorities, there are many other environmental and economic facts to be considered.

The detrimental effects of Fracking are well documented. Some of the key facts are as follows:

Fracking increases local air pollution
An increase in risk of pollution to local drinking water supplies
Possible Risks of seismic activity
Threatens natural habitats
Fracking generates massive amounts of greenhouse gases
Investments in Fracking blocks the development of renewable energy
Increased traffic on roads from site vehicles
Potential to lower the value of your house if located near a site for the above reasons

Scotland, France and Germany have already banned Fracking.

Please help give your support by signing this petition to let the local government that Amber Valley's constituents wish it to remain a Frack free area.

How it will be delivered

We will deliver this petition by email, however, we may decide to deliver this to His offices personally.

Reasons for signing

  • Totally against fracking. Will ruin the environment and no one gains except rich corporations who dodge their taxes. Why aren't we investing in renewables?
  • I'm not a local but I am deeply concerned about the ruination of beautiful areas by fracking.
  • This sort of thing is not good for our earth!
