Let's raise awareness with the farming community and put an ad into the Belfast Telegraph's Balmoral Show Paper.
Fracking is a dirty process that produces a dirty fuel - we should be concentrating and investing in developing a future focussed on clean, safe and home-grown renewable energy instead of risking everything we have for the short term gains of the international gas industry. The benefits of fracking to both our economy and our community will be minimal, while the huge potential costs will be borne by us all. To engage in fracking would threaten our waterways with contamination, cause serious air pollution, risk to public and animal health (agricultural and wildlife), the destruction of environment and communities through industrialisation of our countryside, the dredging up of contaminated radioactive material, detrimentally impact our future carbon emissions targets and threaten our tourism and farming sectors.
