UK fracking policy founded on scientific fraud, misrepresentation and prevarication
16th June 2016 | Commercial Energy
The key study justifying the Government’s claim that fracking is a climate change solution is based on serious scientific errors: the Government has failed to correct these errors and is now also delaying the publication of a new report which would reveal the truth. This truth is that fracking is much worse for the world’s climate than coal.
It costs less to produce electricity from onshore wind than gas, and its climate-changing emissions are close to zero, compared to large emissions in the case of gas. And it is becoming increasingly clear that fossil fuels present a threat to humanity’s future that is way beyond acceptable levels of risk: global warming has contributed to the strongest El Nino event in recorded history recently, coral reefs are dying and Canada has seen unprecedented wildfires.
