Coal is the dirtiest fossil fuel.

Hull Daily Mail: River Humber Coal

Shan Oakes said: “Coal is the dirtiest fossil fuel. Clean coal technology and Carbon capture has not been tested on a wide-scale commercial basis.

“It is expensive and requires a long-term commitment. We should be investing in renewable energy – we have the technology and we have this gigantic estuary that we should be harnessing the power of.

“Reverting to old fossil fuels just is going backwards. We need to be vigilant that companies do not see the Humber as a backwater where they can get away with doing things they couldn’t elsewhere.”

Shan Oakes is Press Officer for the Hull and East Riding Green Party.
