Caroline: Fracking 'flies in the face of the climate science'

Caroline has lambasted the Government for allowing fracking to take place in protected zones like national parks. 

Lucas said:

"If the Government is to match its rhetoric on the climate deal struck in Paris then ministers must urgently rethink their entire approach to energy policy. To have any realistic chance of keeping global warming to well under 2 degrees we need to ban fracking in the UK.

“That’s why the decision to allow drilling under protected areas as well as everywhere else is so deeply disappointing. Not only does fracking fly in the face of the climate science but mounting evidence suggests it won’t lower bills.”

"I know that people across Britain will continue to campaign against fracking – and I look forward to working with them in their fight.”
