Fracking in the Doncaster District

Derrick Evans has asked me to publicise his peaceful campaign against fracking in the Idle Valley and elsewhere, which may be of relevance to nature in Doncaster. He asks that we write to our MPs if we not already done so, to oppose this dirty industry, which will not only push dangerous climate change but may also poison groundwater and cause earth tremors. He is particularly concerned about the prospects for Hatfield Moors where a large reservoir of gas was discovered in 1981 and may suggest that there is shale gas there also.
