Opponents of onshore shale gas in the UK have said new research on global methane emissions supports their call for a ban on fracking on climate change grounds.
Campaigners for and against fracking are failing to deliver a decisive blow to their opponents, according to a new study.
Calls by the shale gas industry to relax the rules on earth tremors induced by fracking are not widely supported by the public, according to a new poll.
Support for fracking has recovered from a record low in the spring, according to results from the latest government attitudes survey. Opposition has fallen from a previous record high.
A new study has found no clear links between the recent swarm of earth tremors in Surrey and local oil drilling activity.
An investigation among people living near Cuadrilla’s Lancashire shale gas site has revealed that most believed fracking was bad for health, wildlife and the wider environment.
All information on activity at a Surrey oil well should be published following another local earth tremor, residents and a community group have said.
