Fracking good news and Climate denialism

Fracking – good news

Tim Farron wrote (24jan12) that he has signed EDM 2292 “HYDRAULIC FRACTURING (FRACKING) (No. 2)” for a moratorium to be placed on this environmentally risky process at least until a detailed EIA has been published
Well done to all those who wrote or visited MPs in response to e.g. ‘The Take Fracking Action!’ in SLACC’s November Newsletter.
44 MPs have signed so far (27jan12) – but not a single Conservative (what does that tell you?!).

On 24th January’s BBC Radio4’s Today programme there was a c.7minute debate on shale gas exploitation and climate change between Tony Juniper and climate change denialist Lord Nigel Lawson in which Juniper gave a strong case and Lawson … well – judge for yourself: 2:42 to c.2:49 in….

This might urge you to sign and tweet this petition to tell pro-fracking Lawson’s climate sceptic thinktank ‘The Global Warming Policy Foundation’ to disclose its funders: This backs an FoI request by leading climate scientists for this information which hopefully went before a judge today (27th): Lawson and his GWPF are favoured climate writers by the Daily Mail, and you probably agree that Lawson gets too much climate airtime on BBC!
