PM must take note of French decision to uphold fracking ban
Reacting to the French constitutional court’s decision to uphold France’s fracking ban today (Friday 11 October 2013), Friends of the Earth Energy Campaigner Tony Bosworth said:
“News that the French ban on fracking has been upheld is a real shot in the arm for people fighting against shale gas and oil in the UK.
“David Cameron must take note and call a halt to this hugely risky process, rather than pushing ahead with a fossil fuelled energy strategy that has little regard for the environment or local communities.”
