A study by climate scientists says carbon capture and storage (CCS) cannot meet the urgent need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The government is standing by its moratorium on fracking in England after new research concluded that induced earthquakes were hard to predict and manage.
Opponents of fracking have used the first anniversary of the moratorium on fracking in England to call for the shale gas industry to give up.
A six-day methane gas release at Cuadrilla’s fracking site near Blackpool had the same carbon footprint as 142 flights from London to New York, new research has concluded.
People living near three shale gas sites in England reported increased levels of stress, a new study has found. The research, which studied communities in Lancashire, Cheshire and North Yorkshire, found people experienced anxiety, sleep disturbance, high levels of anger and exhaustion. One in seven people surveyed for […]
The UK Government and its advisers “marginalised, downplayed or ignored” public health concerns about shale gas exploration and fracking in England, new research has concluded.
Complex geology in one of the UK’s leading shale gas regions places a major constraint on exploration and production, scientists have concluded.
Emissions of methane from fossil fuels have been underestimated by up to 40%, according to a new study.
DrillOrDrop has compiled reaction to the government’s statement on a immediate moratorium on fracking. We have comments from community groups, campaigners, academics, politicians and the shale gas industry. Full report on the government statement
