Shale gas and fracking: examining the evidence

This report highlights

  • major shortcomings in regulatory oversight regarding local environmental and public health risks,
  • the large potential for UK shale gas exploitation to undermine national and international efforts to tackle climate change,
  • the water-intensive nature of the fracking process which could cause water shortages in many areas and
  • the complete lack of evidence behind claims that shale gas exploitation will bring down UK energy bills, and concerns that it will impact negatively on UK energy security.
