Oil's not well on the Wolds

Letter to Beverley Guardian:  

We wrote  to object in the strongest possible terms to East Riding Council regarding proposals for oil prospecting on the Yorkshire Wolds. The Green Party, alongwith Friends of the Earth (FOE) and other well-respected organisations, campaign, on the basis of careful research,  for development and use of renewable energy and fuel conservation instead of the further exploitation of fossil fuels. We have had a century’s addiction to oil  - and we must now wean ourselves off this addiction, as oil becomes harder and harder to find and to extract. There are excellent alternatives which must be embraced instead of resisted.
