Green Party responds to Kirby Misperton fracking delay

8 March 2018

The Green Party has responded to news that fracking in Kirby Misperton has been delayed until the Autumn [1].

Jonathan Bartley, co-leader of the Green Party, said:

“Fracking is dying and being kept on life support but the reality is that it is on its way out.  The companies pursuing it are plagued by desperation and incompetence as with every day that passes fracking shows fewer and fewer signs that it can resurrect itself from its deathbed ever deliver what the country needs.


“For this Government to keep throwing money at this corpse of an industry when there are cheaper, cleaner, more effective alternatives defies common sense. Instead we should be investing in making Britain a world leader in the renewable energy of the future.”
