This is exciting news from just over the border….!
The Welsh government has proposed new rules to permanently prevent fracking in Wales.
They’re now consulting on the plans. And if enough of us support the proposal, we can make sure that Wales stays frack free forever.
If you don’t want to contact the Welsh government directly, you can add your name to the petition being forwarded by Friends of the Earth to tell the Welsh government that you support an end to fracking.
The proposal doesn’t go as far as some would like. It’s not an outright ban and it doesn’t cover all sources of fossil fuels, like coal bed methane. But if it gets passed, it would effectively kill off fracking in Wales.
Gives us hope that this may be something we can ask of the UK government….
