Frack That: Government Funds Anti-Extraction Campaign

fracking-national-_2641250b

Discredited anti-fracking charity MEDACT is making a last ditch effort to influence Lancashire County Council’s 24 June vote on whether to allow fracking, by holding a public meeting in Preston next week, in which they will wheel out their “experts“.

The only expert announced so far is one John Ashton, a former civil servant and the founder of environmental not-for -profit E3G.

E3G receives funding from the Department of Energy & Climate Change.

And the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs.

And the Department for International Development.

Oh, and the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.

The government is funding the opposition to its own fracking policy…
