Public support for fracking at all time low
Commenting on the latest BEIS public attitudes tracker which reveals that support for fracking has fallen to 12 %, Friends of the Earth clean energy campaigner Jamie Peters said:
“With support for fracking at all all-time low and overwhelming public concern about climate change, it’s time to pull the plug on this destructive, unnecessary and unwanted industry.
“Ministers must listen to the mounting scientific evidence on climate change, huge backing for renewable energy, and growing demand for tougher action.
“This means abandoning support for climate-wrecking fracking and fossil fuels and instead championing energy saving and power from the wind, waves and sun. This is what the science requires and the public demand. It’s time to stop dithering and get on with it.”
