Martin Porter from Frack Free Greater Manchester said “Fracking is the front line in the fight against the crisis of Climate Change. But Climate Change isn’t just a crisis. It’s worse than that. It’s a scandal. It’s a scandal because we can do something about it. Instead of a few hundred jobs in fracking, the Northwest could have a hundred thousand in wind and solar power, in making our houses warmer and getting our public transport work
“This is the way to fight austerity, and this is how we can make sure the solution to the climate crisis is also the solution to our social crisis.”
