Help stop fracking in Wales
7 August 2012

Fracking for shale gas is terrible news for tackling climate change, as well as being known to pollute water supplies and cause earthquakes.

Well over half the population of Wales lives in areas that are already, or are likely to become, licensed for fracking - the controversial process where water, sand and chemicals are pumped underground to release shale gas. There have already been applications for test drillings in Wales.

Fracking causes earthquakes, and has polluted water supplies. But of greatest concern is its greenhouse gas emissions, which have been estimated in some cases to be twice as much as coal.

Help stop fracking in Wales - email the First Minister, Carwyn Jones, asking him to support a moratorium on unconventional gas exploitation in Wales.
