Meet the communities fighting fracking with Friends of the Earth
After 8 years of campaigning by local groups and NGOs, the UK government announced a moratorium on fracking in November 2019. This was a huge victory for the climate and shows what can be achieved when communities join together for a common goal.
But as our energy bills soar, some political figures are calling for this planet-wrecking practice to start up again and government is considering whether to overturn the fracking moratorium in England. We can keep fossil fuels in the ground and prioritise renewable energy to solve these problems.
