Fossil Fuels v Clean Energy: No Drilling near Billingshurst
March 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
UKOG plan to start exploratory drilling for oil this spring at Broadford Bridge, 2 miles from Billinghurst. Many of us who live here and in the surrounding villages are very concerned about the expansion of the polluting fossil fuel industry so close to home. The Weald is faulted and such cracks, if disturbed, could lead to water pollution or seismic tremors. Air and noise pollution, traffic increase near the level crossing and pre-school and the industrialisation of the wider rural area are all risks that concern us. Oil development should not be taking place as it clearly affects climate change. We need to listen to the results of scientific studies and think of how such actions will affect future generations. If you want us all to have clean, renewable energies, to protect water supplies, safeguard public health and the environment, please join us. We will be meeting every Saturday from 2-4 until further notice.
