Dear Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government

In the wake of the Committee on Climate Change report, which concludes that fracking risks breaching the UK’s legally-binding climate change targets, please urgently:

  • introduce an immediate halt on all fracking plans;
  • undertake a full assessment of whether it is possible to meet the CCC’s 3 tests (pdf);
  • ask the Committee to assess the compatibility of fracking with the UN Paris agreement to pursue efforts to keep global warming to 1.5 degrees.
