    UK Fights Fracking As Threat To Climate

    Large-scale fracking ‘not compatible with climate change targets

    Emily Beament, 7 July 2016 (The Yorkshire Post)

    "A significant fracking industry in the UK could put meeting targets to tackle climate change at risk, Government advisers have warned…Extracting shale gas through the controversial process on a significant scale…[must be regulated to assure it meets three key tests of (1) preventing methane leaks, (2) replacing imports and (3) not pushing up UK gas consumption]…Emissions from shale gas extraction must also be offset by deeper greenhouse gas cuts elsewhere in the economy to make sure the UK stays on track to deliver its legally binding goal of 80% reductions on 1990 levels by 2050…Even with controls to limit emissions from extraction and no greater consumption of gas, fracking could produce some 11 million tonnes extra greenhouse gases a year by 2030…The committee also reiterated its warning that the UK urgently needs technology to capture and store carbon emissions from power stations and industry, as without it use of gas would have to be dramatically reduced to tackle climate change…” click here for more
