Andy Mayer quoted in The Times

IEA Chief Operating Officer and Energy Analyst Andy Mayer has been quoted in The Times attacking the government’s decision to reinstate the fracking ban.

Andy was quoted:

“To rely on imported gas when we have 50 to 100 years supply under our feet is not a stance rooted in science or economics, but political weakness in the face of militant protest groups and anti-development campaigns

“This decision will not help the planet; the UK will become more dependent on gas imports, with higher emissions than local production.”
