The UK General Election is just weeks away. With MP candidates going all out to win our votes, this is a huge opportunity to push fracking up the political agenda.
Can you ask your local candidates to promise to oppose fracking if they’re elected?
Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth are appealing to us all to contact our local election candidates and ask them if they will promise to oppose fracking if they are elected.
And they’ve made it so easy: all you have to do is go to their website, and enter your postcode. You will then be told which candidates in your area have not signed the frack-free pledge and enabled to send them an email request to do so.
Let’s all do it! And share it, far and wide.
We’ve been thinking a lot about the connection between water and energy as it is World Water Week. Definitely a timely post given the huge water implications of fracking.
It is a terrifying prospect. Here’s hoping those in power finally see sense.
