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.
Please also see details of our first meeting here:
How it will be delivered
We will deliver this petition by email, however, we may decide to deliver this to His offices personally.
