Fracking requires vast quantities of water, millions of gallons per well, which is stressing local water resources in areas like Texas, Colorado, Michigan and North Dakota, where farmers have been outbid for irrigation water and in some cases whole towns running dry… More on the fracking industry’s water usage here: https://frack-off.org.uk/mounting-evidence-the-harm-caused-by-fracking/#water NOW IS THE TIME TO […]

They plan to develop a wellsite and drill up to two exploratory shale gas wells (one vertically and one horizontally). See the site and […]
Fracking is not a pathway to UK energy security. An average shale gas well produces 1 billion cubic feet (bcf) of gas, an average coal bed methane well (CBM) produces half of that. Divide that by UK gas consumption and you realise that we’d need to be drilling 8-10 new wells each and every day! […]
Upton Community Protection Camp has been on a site licensed to fracking companies Dart Energy and IGas for well over a year. It’s presence has defended the community from becoming a regional foothold for the industry. Now the camp faces eviction. Can you help make this attempted eviction as embarrassing and costly for the industry […]
The Kings Cliffe Landfill near Peterborough, operated by hazardous waste company Augean, is one of the few landfill sites in the UK presently allowed to accept low-level radioactive waste. The site has been mentioned as a likely destination for solid radioactive waste from fracking, if it is not stopped. The dumping of radioactive waste at […]
When communities threatened by fracking get organised to resist this invasion, they have a massive effect. Stopping any single well can be very difficult, especially with the whole weight of the state behind the fracking industry. However, in the long-term, massive investment will be required to make fracking a reality. Such investment will not be […]
