Save Our National Parks From Fracking

Britain’s treasured national parks could become drilling sites in a recent move by the government to open them up to fracking by big oil companies. It’s part of a wider government plan inviting oil companies to apply for licenses to drill for oil all across the UK — and about half the country is up for grabs.

The current process to get a licence to drill for oil in the UK is long and relatively robust, but Minister for Energy Matthew Hancock wants to speed up the process so companies can start drilling with six months of making an application.

And we all know what that means: cut corners and bad decisions.Unfortunately, once our national parks have been desecrated by fracking, there’s no coming back.

Tell the government to immediately remove national parks from the list of areas open to fracking operations.
