To the Ends of the Earth: A Guide to Uconventional Fossil Fuels
Corporate Watch’s new cutting edge report provides the most comprehensive and accessible guide yet to unconventional fossil fuels.
From the dangers of fracking to the devastating effects of tar sands extraction, this guide brings together everything you need to know about unconventional fossil fuels in one place for the first time.
We have spent about 6 months in Derby talking about the Council taking a stand against fracking. To cut a long story short a heavily modified motion was passed at the Council meeting on the 11th of June; see this link to one of the bits that appeared in the local paper: ‘Fracking impact to be subject of probe’
We in Derby Climate Coalition are opposed to fracking for one reason above all: the impact on Greenhouse Gas emissions. To have any hopeof avoiding runaway climate change the world needs to wean itself off fossil fuels and invest in a renewable energy infrastructure.
There are many other reason to oppose fracking; some are shown on the attached leaflet. But we want to draw your attention to the fact that Derby City Council are debating this motion (on Wednesday 11 June 2014 at 11.00 am) at their Annual Meeting.
