Update 24 Oct 17the Scottish Parliament voted to support and strengthen the Scottish Government’s proposal to ban fracking.

Recently the Scottish Government announced a ban on fracking which is a momentous win for communities and our climate. The Energy Minister announced that the existing moratorium would be extended indefinitely using planning and environmental regulation powers to effectively ban the fracking industry.

Over 60,000 people responded to the Scottish Government’s consultation on fracking, the second largest number to engage in a consultation in the history of the devolved Parliament, with 99% calling for a ban. This is the largest number of people ever to express a single opinion to a Scottish Government official consultation.

However the Minister did not commit to putting the ban into law and the Scottish Government must seek Parliament’s approval for its plans to stop fracking, in a crucial vote in only a few weeks time. Friends of the Earth Scotland are asking you to contact your MSPs now to ask them to push the Government to go further and ask them to take the final step by passing a law banning fracking.

Hot-Sun-Thermometer-300x295Friends of the Earth Scotland has warned that 2014 is going to be the hottest year on record. Dr Richard Dixon, Director of Friends of the Earth Scotland, said,

“With the warmest spring ever and every month bar one above average so far, 2014 is on course to be the hottest year ever recorded in Scotland. This would mean that eight years since 2000 are in the top ten warmest since records began in 1910. Scotland’s weather is showing a very clear long-term trend of increasing temperatures, just as climate change scientists predict.”
