Frack Free York Meets Green Party Co-Leader Jonathan Bartley
On 3 November, members of Frack Free York and other Yorkshire anti-fracking group, as well as local members of the Green Party met Jonathan Bartley, one of the co-leasders of the Green Party. He listened with interest to our concerns about the links between unconventional gas and climate change, air pollution and water pollution and expressed his support for the anti-fracking cause.
After the meeting he gave an interview to Minster FM, in which he said the decision to approve fracking at Kirby Misperton in Ryedale, was. “reckless.” and, “rode roughshod over local opinion.”
