Sussex Wildlife Trust speaks out.

"Sussex is still a rural county, with a diverse landscape and a rich wildlife. Fracking could result in the industrialisation of Sussex.  Perhaps a more significant threat, however, is that we are all being diverted. At a time when we should be talking about more modern alternative energy sources – renewables – we are instead wasting time discussing a carbon-based fuel which, if we are to prevent catastrophic climate change, should remain in the ground."
