Fracking company Third Energy granted permission to frack @ North Yorkshire site
These plans could pave the way for thousands of fracking wells to spread across Yorkshire and many other parts of the country if not stopped. Impacts, including pipelines, air pollution and waste disposal will spread far beyond the areas being drilled.
Today’s decision is part of a wider battle, between communities across the country and a fracking industry backed by central government, and as with Cuadrilla’s applications in Lancashire Third Energy’s plans in Ryedale are the thin end of a very large wedge.
This is a fight we can only win together. Live in the North Yorkshire region? Join the campaign today: http://frackfreeryedale.org/
