EU Against Fracking?

The European Parliament recently said that fracking is of questionable value as a

viable technology in the European Union; (and it) believes that public concerns must be properly addressed and any hydraulic fracturing activities should comply with the highest climate, environmental and public health standards.

You can find the version of this paragraph NR 134 in all 21 languages of the EU: SpanishFrenchPolishRomanian, …In the week after COP21, it is good news that Members of the European Parliament now openly question the compatibility of developing shale gas with the EU’s commitment to completely decarbonize its economy in the next 35 years.    (Geert Decock – Director EU Affairs – Food & Water Europe)
