No Fracking Way

On September 16th, High Peak Green Party members joined local people in Eckington, Derbyshire, to protest against plans by INEOS to frack in the area of Marsh Lane. The Green Party oppose fracking for many reasons. The history of the fracking boom in the U.S. is one horror story after another of contaminated air, water, and land. Our government claims that it will be different here - more strictly regulated. But are we really willing to take that risk? But the main reason that we, in the Green Party, oppose fracking is that climate scientists tell us that to avoid catastrophic climate change almost all of already proven fossil fuel resources must remain in the ground. Why spend time, money,
