The Shale Gas Environmental Summit is a two day event where the industry gathers together to discuss ways to calm fears around the environmental impacts of fracking and unconventional gas extraction.
They are so concerned in fact that they have invited noted climate change denier Benny Peiser of the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) to speak at the event. Chaired by Lord Lawson, another climate change denier, this “think tank” is also at risk of being dismantled by the Charity Commission for persistently disseminated inaccurate and misleading information about climate change as part of its campaign against climate policies in the UK and overseas.
Join us outside to highlight the hypocrisy of this event and to tell GWPF and the industry to “Frack Off!” Please bring signs and noisemakers.
Meeting Point: Outside Great Portland Street Tube station. Look out for people in gas masks.
