Keep the fracking ban in national parks and wildlife zones
- by: Greenpeace UK
- recipient: Amber Rudd, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change
Earlier this year, the government promised to ban fracking in national parks and wildlife protection zones.
But now in a shocking u-turn, energy minister Amber Rudd has announced a roll back on the government's promise -- meaning that very soon, important spaces for rare and threatened plants and animals could soon be exposed to the irresponsible fossil fuel industry.
The shale gas and oil industry already poses a huge threat to the climate, but if the government back tracks now it would put some of UK's most-treasured wild spaces at risk.
Please sign the petition here and ask energy minister Amber Rudd to keep the promise to protect national parks and wildlife protection zones from fracking.
