Why we got together to Reclaim the Power
As Britain and the wider world suffer with increasingly extreme weather, the government and fossil fuel industry are pressing ahead with plans that could see see two thirds of the UK covered by fracking rigs, causing more carbon emissions and causing even more destructive weather patterns. Fracking is part of the wider Dash for Gas which could include the construction of a fleet of new gas-fired power stations. This agenda will crash our climate targets, increase fuel poverty and keep our future energy dangerously concentrated in the hands of unaccountable corporations.
We can’t let this happen.
Why we must stop the Dash for Gas
Ten new gas-fired power stations are planned for the UK. Despite overwhelming evidence that we’re rapidly heading towards catastrophic climate change, these plans rip up the Government’s own legally binding commitments to reduce carbon emissions; they will actually make us even more dependent on fossil fuels in 2030 than we are now.
