Environmental campaigners have urged politicians not to ignore the cloud of smog that has smothered parts of the UK over the last few days, saying they are "playing with people's lives".
Friends of the Earth's Jane Thomas told Daybreak, "29,000 people a year die prematurely in London alone" from pollution created by emissions.
Friends of the Earth director of policy and campaigns Craig Bennett said the nuclear power agreement with Chinese investors was "a bad deal for taxpayers".
Mr Bennett said:
Friends of the Earth called promising tax breaks for fracking in the current economic climate "a disgrace".
The group's head of campaigns, Andrew Pendleton, added:
The head of policy at environmental group Friends of the Earth, Mike Childs, has said that experts expect to see extreme weather events such as intense rainfall become more common as a result of global warming:
A campaigner for Friends of the Earth in the North West, Helen Rimmer, has said that communities will "fight" the decision to allow fracking to resume.
She also said there is no guarantee that fracking will lower energy prices in the UK.
