Fracking - Say No

On Friday 23rd December Adam was on BBC Somerset radio's Claire Carter show talking about why he and thousands of other councillors objected to the Government's proposal to take decision making on fracking projects away from local councils and into Government control. He argued that the Government should not bypass local democracy, and should be putting their efforts into supporting (rather than putting up barriers to) renewable energy industries instead.
