Urgent please act – 9th May

Thanks to SchisteHappens for this information. Act Today!

The government are starting to backtrack on what said they would do – that is put a stop to gaz de schiste. While this is no great surprise, they must be told that we have noticed and are not happy.

Christian Jacob’s bill to repeal the permits allowing exploration and exploitation of shale gas in France will be debated by the National Assembly this Tuesday and Wednesday (10th and 11th May).

The original bill has been substantially reduced and now gives the permit holders two months to explain which technique they intend to use. This means that if the companies come up with any method other than hydraulic fracturing, they will retain their licenses without further inquiry.

This revised draft of the bill does not do what we were led to believe and opens the door for petroleum companies to retain the permits and begin drilling.

The text of the email tells the assembly members that this is unacceptable.

We do not have much time. Please send your email TODAY and pass it on to your email contacts
