Factsheet: Fracking and climate change

Fracking is not a clean or green form of energy. Fracking and the rest of the fossil fuel industry is preventing Canada from reducing its GHG emissions and doing its fair share to mitigate the global climate crisis. Shale gas development can ultimately bring climate consequences comparable to coal over a century, and worse than coal over two decades. Rather than continuing to frack for natural gas, we should be looking for creative solutions to transition off of fossil fuels.
