Fracking will accelerate climate change. The extraction of shale gas is difficult, dirty and inefficient. It is not compatible with the pressing need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Fracking will put communities at risk. Fracking sites and the host of dangerous pollutants used and released by the process and mass lorry movements will blight our countryside.
Fracking will not lower energy bills, although David Cameron chooses to repeat this myth the International Energy Agency predicts the price of gas will rise 40% by 2020.
