Last month the CEO of shale gas firm Cuadrilla had the audacity to brand anti-fracking activists 'irresponsible'. In truth the irresponsible ones are the corporations risking our environment with yet more dangerous fossil fuel exploration and extraction, and the Conservative government for overriding decisions of democratically elected councils to impose fracking on communities who don’t want it.
This is why, in the face of threats to progress on climate action, the work we are doing to protect the environment and local communities is more important than ever.
You can help us to campaign for a future safe for all
Already the Green Party is making a difference nationally and locally; here are some examples of where and how:
- Green councillors who hold the balance of power in Worcester have won agreement for the planting of trees to combat air pollution in an area of the city that currently breaches safe limits.
- The Green led coalition on Stroud Council has enabled it to become the first carbon neutral authority in the country.
- We have released an in-depth report calling for a new Environmental Protection Act to safeguard, and extend, current environmental protections during the Brexit negotiations.
