Impact on Climate Change

Fracking will lock the UK into a new fossil fuel industry for decades to come and undermine the drive towards clean renewable energy and a low-carbon economy.

As well as the CO2 caused by burning the fracked gas, leaks during production and from abandoned wells will allow large quantities of methane to enter the atmosphere, and methane is 86 times more potent a greenhouse gas than CO2 over 20 years.

Climate change will lead to more extreme weather events and flooding across the UK and the rest of the world.
