NOT A BAN IN NI
Here are some great news from Northern Ireland: Authorities have made
some important announcements today as part of the review of their local
planning system. It has indeed and for the first time set out in black
and white a no to fracking policy.
It’s interesting to read authorities arguing that this will “only change
in the future if the Department is satisfied that there is sufficient
and robust evidence on all environmental impacts of fracking”…
Finally the burden of proof is put on the shoulders of the industry and
the principle of precaution is rightly applied, which clearly sets an
interesting example for the rest of the UK, but also for the other
Guess what: Tomorrow we will reach 2.6 mio signatures! Hurahhh to that
and to being so much closer to 3 million! Congratuations

You may remember the big fuss FoEE made several months when we decided to leave the expert group on fracking that had just been established by the European Commission because of the over-representation and unacceptable influence of the industry.
