Professor Kevin Anderson has written a detailed blog post about the implications of a UK shale gas industry for climate change.
The post, based on analysis developed by Professor Anderson in collaboration with Dr John Broderick, is in response to another Professor’s work entitled “Hydraulic fracturing for shale gas in the UK – an opportunity to shape a constructive way forward”.
Professor Anderson begins “Professor Mair’s Royal Society post suggests that the development of a UK shale gas industry is compatible with the UK’s climate change targets. I suggest this conclusion is premised on a partial and overly simplistic interpretation of the UK’s muddled climate change obligations.”
