‘We’re screaming out’ Expert pinpoints key way UK can take back control of energy supply

Rupert Lowe, a former MEP for the Brexit Party, said: “Johnson should immediately lift the ban on fracking.

“It will have to happen sooner or later, so just get on with it now.”

But, according to Professor Maslin, restarting fracking is not as simple as it might at first seem. He explained that to do so would require a great deal of time and manpower.

Greg Hands, an energy minister, suggested shale gas “could be part of our future energy mix, but we need to be led by the science and have the support of local communities”.

As such, “shale gas is not the solution to near-term issues”.

New methods of extracting shale gas, supposed to be more eco-friendly than fracking, have been mooted as possible alternatives.
