Course Summary:

The UK Government gave the green light to fracking for shale gas in the UK in late 2012. Friends of the Earth believes that this is a misguided gamble that we do not need to take. Fracking for shale gas helps keep us hooked on fossil fuels instead of moving towards an energy system based on energy saving and renewable sources; brings serious risks to the local environment and people’s health, and is unlikely to cut energy bills. Proposals for fracking are meeting strong opposition in the UK, as they have throughout the world. Shale gas is unconventional, unnecessary and unwanted.

Learning Objective:

Does the benefits of shale fracking outweighs the potential environmental problems?
