“Successful protests in Balcombe, Sussex have brought the fracking issue centre stage. Now it’s our turn- Igas are starting to drill at Barton Moss, near Eccles , in October. They will drill for 8-10 weeks to see if there is potential to extract coal bed methane and shale gas. The environmental damage of fracking-such as pollution of ground water-is bad enough; burning the gas would also make it impossible to meet the UK targets on reducing CO2 emissions and so increase the danger of catastrophic climate change.
“No Dash for Gas and the local campaign group (Say no to Fracking on Barton Moss) have set up this meeting supported by CaCC, Friends of the Earth and other groups.
“Come to the meeting to learn more and be part of the campaign to stop Igas : Fracking and Barton Moss”
