- Blow to green activists who are concerned about the effects of fracking
The world’s leading experts on climate change say fracking will cut greenhouse gas emissions and should be made central to the country’s energy production.
It will help the UK move away from ‘dirty’ coal and contribute to saving the environment, according to a report by the influential Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
The unexpected endorsement from 235 eminent United Nations scientists and economists will be a welcome boost to David Cameron, who is a keen advocate of the new technology.
It is also a blow to green activists, who seek cuts in greenhouse gas emissions but are concerned about the effects of fracking.
