The press release issued by the Friends of the Earth on 26 October 2022.

Reacting to news that Rishi Sunak has reimposed the fracking moratorium, Friends of the Earth energy campaigner, Danny Gross, said:

“This is a fantastic victory for common sense, the environment and local communities across the country who have stood up to the threat of fracking.

“The government must now focus on real solutions to the energy crisis including a street-by-street home insulation programme and developing the UK’s huge potential of onshore wind and solar energy production.”
