Petition Ban 'Fracking' gas extraction in the UK
The Government must ban all gas companies from attempting to bring Hydraulic Fracturing to the UK. This extraction method has been shown in the US to release huge amounts of chemicals and gas into the water table which has then contaminated drinking water, causing health problems to local residents. For more info search 'Fracking' or 'Gasland'
