In today's telegraph, Greenpeace have responded to comments made by the Prime Minister as he backed the fracking process.
Leila Dean, Greenpeace Energy Campaigner said:
"If this is David Cameron’s attempt to reassure his party and voters, he’ll have to up his game. We’ve seen that foisting fracking on communities – South or North – doesn’t work, and his comments are likely to further stir rebellion in the Home Counties, not quell it."
The Prime Minister's claim that UK shale gas will reduce energy prices doesn't stack. Experts from Ofgem to Deutsche Bank to drilling company Cuadrilla itself agree UK shale will not bring down bills, because unlike the US, the UK is part of a huge European gas market.
The government must come clean about where its getting its advice from, and the role shale gas lobbyists are playing in it."
