A petition to prevent gas or oil extraction in our beautiful county:
We the undersigned:
- Demand the Government reverses its decision to allow fracking
- Call on regional councils to pledge they will not allow fracking or Underground Coal Gasification (UCG) in Warwickshire
The Prime Minister’s decision to reverse the 2019 ban on fracking will be extremely worrying for the county’s residents who successfully fought to prevent it years ago.
Fracking and UCG will not help reduce energy prices nor will it increase supply in any notable way. They will, however, damage the environment and local communities. Fracking is also known to cause earth tremors.
Instead of extracting fossil fuels, the Government should be investing in wind and solar energy – the cheapest and cleanest forms available to us.
Fracking is dirty, damaging and undemocratic. UCG is similarly worrying to environmental experts.
No doubt I’ll be the only Warwickshire MP to oppose these practices.
The terrifying image shows the size of the area in Coventry and Warwickshire which the British Geological Survey says is suitable for UCG.
