No to Fracking! Leave it in the Ground.

Brid Smith TD reports from her committee meeting earlier:  “I’m deeply suspicious about the report on fracking as presented this evening by the EPA and CDM – a company themselves engaged in fracking – to an Oireachteas committee that I’m on. The committee deals with environment and climate change; the Dáil has decided to ban fracking, so why are we now considering how it might be done ‘safely’ ? There is no safe fracking. There is no justification for increasing fossil fuel use. Leave it in the ground.”

  1. Thanks for your report from the committee meeting. What is going on here is a subversion of democracy. The CDM report would have been considered before the vote to ban fracking. There is no place for CDM Smith personell in examining a bill that has been passed by our elected representatives. Mussolini once described that kind of marriage of state and corporate interests as the ultimate in fascism.
