Fracking talk and discussion March 5th

Adrian Shaw, the Church of Scotland’s Climate Change Officer is coming to the West Lothian and Falkirk Eco-Congregation Network meeting on 5th March, 7.30 -9.00pm at Torphichen Church to talk about and discuss with you “Fracking: sensible solution or disastrous development?”

2013 saw the initial development of fracking in the UK.  Reviled by some as a dangerous and unnecessary prolongation of gas as an energy source and an environmental hazard, it has been strongly supported by others, including the UK Government , as a useful source of cheap gas for future decades.  The furious debate and demonstrations it has sparked off have not been conclusive or very enlightening and facts about fracking in the UK seem hard to come by.  Yet this an important debate and central to the future of our energy use and responding to climate change .  What does it mean for you and what do you think we should do?  A big question but one that eco-congregations should consider.

Please publicise this talk to your congregation through notices, intimations and announcements etc. – you can download a poster here: Fracking poster
