Frack Free United is a network of residents, communities and campaign groups who are coming together to protect our countryside and communities from the threat of fracking, strengthening and building a coalition from all walks of life and working together to oppose fracking across the UK.
We intend to stop extreme Oil and Gas extraction. We must create the narrative and push the national agenda and encourage debate on the issue in the corridors of power. It is imperative that we encourage politicians to make their position on Fracking clear and use any means at their disposal to stop fracking in their area and across the UK.
We must let the policy makers know we are all watching the actions of our politicians and how they respond to fracking at all levels of government.
As a grass roots level we are asking you oppose fracking in our communities and across the UK. We want to build Frack Free United to strengthen and build a progressive coalition against fracking and other forms of extreme fossil fuel extraction.
We call on local and national government to adopt an energy policy based primarily on renewables and energy efficiency, supporting green enterprise and a sustainable energy policy for the future.
The UK has the vision, the knowledge and technology to create a world- leading, sustainable and clean energy revolution, yet the government cuts to this industry has led to the loss of thousands of jobs. Government support of fracking is more likely to commit the country to a fossil fuel future for decades to come.
Frack Free United believe a mix of renewable generation, energy storage, alternative gas supplies and other low CO2 sources of power, with a truly sustainable efficiency drive and development plan, is required to secure the energy needs of the future.
“Castle Howard is surrounded by Grade 1 monuments, buildings, and other structures, not the least of which is the finest non-urban collection of Hawksmoor buildings in the country. These are prime heritage assets for which I am responsible. I would be derelict in my duties were I not to raise the possibility of their ruination through seismic events caused by the hydraulic fracturing process and associated processes. It has yet to be demonstrated that this is not a material worry.” - The Hon Nicholas Howard, Castle Howard
