Climate change is happening now and will have increasingly severe consequences if we don’t act - including more devastating floods, extreme heat, and plunging many millions of people into poverty. We need to act fast in order to keep the world’s temperature from rising above 1.5 degrees.
The fracking industry has wasted 8 years on the false premise that fracking is safe, reliable and ready to deliver. First they wanted to be allowed to drill under your house without your permission. Then Government tried letting them off the hook by allowing them to drill without planning permission. And now the industry wants to lower safety standards so they can cause bigger earthquakes.
The government have a choice: keep backing a failing industry that wants to burn more fossil fuels or get real about the climate emergency we’re all facing.
Now is the time to invest in renewables for a clean energy future.
