Dr. Damien Short, Director of both the Human Rights Consortium and the Extreme Energy Initiative (EEI), appears in this Ecologist Film Unit production to speak about Britain’s ‘gas rush’.
Across the UK, Britain’s green, picturesque land is facing uncertainty after the arrival of fracking. The spectre of gas wells and drilling sites, articulated trucks, waste lagoons, and other fracking detritus hangs heavy in a land more typically associated with small scale farming, cricket on the green, and ‘cottage’ industries. But, not prepared to see their landscape altered forever, a new wave of citizen activists is gearing up to fight back.
The film features on the Ecologist website alongside a special report by Frack Off, one of EEI’s supporting campaigns, which you can read on our blog.
