TBI responds to Scottish Government Consultation on Fracking
10 June 2017
The Scottish Government's public consultation on Fracking closed on 31 May, and we hope many of you were moved to make individual responses. A response on behalf of TBI was submitted by Julian Paren, and the argument of the response is summed up below in his response to the question
Overall, and in light of the available evidence, what do you think would be the main benefits, if any, of an unconventional oil and gas industry in Scotland?
We see no benefits. We see only a polluted environment and Scotland failing to meet its carbon targets. We cannot conceive that with clean-up costs the industry could be cost effective compared with other forms of energy production.
