Hollywood actor and environmental campaigner Mark Ruffalo has made a passionate plea to UK prime minister David Cameron urging him not to force fracking on the people of the UK..
“Mr Cameron you are making an enormous mistake and its a legacy mistake because there is no fracking that can be done safely. Today we are at the precipice of a renewable energy revolution. This is the new economy. We had 200 countries from around the world agree that its time to leave fossil fuels in the ground. This is where all new wealth will be created, this is where new jobs are going to be created and not only that, your people don’t want it (fracking) you have already told them once before that if they didn’t want it, you wouldn’t push them to take it and you are turning back on your word Sir. What is a politician if he isn’t credible. So I would say to you, this is a wonderful opportunity for you to honour your people, to honour their will but also to take them into the renewable energy future of the world and to be a real true and honest world leader and leave the fossil fuels in the ground. What we are being told by every single scientist in the world thats we must leave 70% of it in the ground if we have a chance at all and to join us and the rest of the world in making this monumental transition into a cleaner, safer more just world.” Mark Ruffalo
