Fracking: Unconventional, unnecessary and unwanted

A Friends of the Earth briefing on "Why fracking for shale gas is a gamble the UK does not need to take"
The Government gave the green light to fracking for shale gas in the UK in late 2012. Fracking for shale gas helps keep us hooked on fossil fuels instead of moving towards an energy system based on energy saving and renewable sources; brings serious risks to the local environment and people’s health, and is unlikely to cut energy bills. Proposals for fracking are meeting strong opposition in the UK, as they have throughout the world. Shale gas is unconventional, unnecessary and unwanted.

Energy Bill Briefing: Political update

This briefing provides an update on the three most important issues facing the Energy Bill: 

1. the need for a power sector decarbonisation target in 2030;
2. the lack of energy efficiency measures in the Bill;
3. the dangers of dependence on expensive, volatile, imported fossil fuels.
If these issues are addressed by the government before the Energy Bill is passed, we will have ensured that it delivers for the economy, consumers and the environment.

Point of No Return (2013)

This 2013 Greenpeace study reveals how a 'carbon bomb' of 14 planned fossil fuel projects alone would increase global carbon emissions by 20% by 2020 if given the go-ahead. These projects include expansion of Canadian and Venezuelan tar sands; open cast coal mines in China and Australia; offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico and Brazil - as well as other Ecocidal plans. This report explores the climate science as well as the clean energy alternatives.
