Responding to news that the Government has ordered a new report into the impact of fracking, Green Party co-leader Carla Denyer said:
“Fracking will only deepen our country's dependence on fossil fuels, will not bring down fuel bills for people who are struggling, and will cause yet more damage to local communities and to the climate.
“The most effective and sustainable way of bringing down the cost of living is to invest in insulating houses and massively ramping up renewable energy. Fracking is an expensive and dangerous distraction from that urgent goal.”
