Yesterday over 100,000 38 Degrees members called on the government to publish the report it’s kept secret on the impact of fracking in the UK.
38 Degrees members handed the big petition in to government officials in Westminster, and are now waiting for the government’s response. Currently 122,955 of us have signed the petition, which is still growing.
The campaign was started after it was exposed that the government’s been covering-up the report on fracking. It’s from the Climate Change Committee and measures the impact of fracking on our towns and cities. If the report finds that the risks of fracking are too high – it could put a stop to it.
The government should have release the report 10 weeks ago but have so far refused. This huge wave of people power could force them into publishing it. 38 Degrees members will not stand by whilst the government covers-up vital information which the public has a right to know about.
