A lack of courage by western governments is having devastating consequences on the environment. Case in point is America and her advocacy of fracking. This is the unacceptable “solution” and the US has been pushing this approach to other countries. The decision by the British government last week to overturn Lancashire’s rejection of fracking shows that the UK, too, seems to be following this money trail.
Why are countries advocating such environmentally-unfriendly choices for the extraction of energy? Why are countries reluctant to prioritise eco-friendly solutions? Why are countries in denial?
