  Your vote on May 7 can play a role in fracking SA (or not).

Here is a list compiled by TKAG, of where various political parties stand on fracking. It is based on what we have been able to glean from political media statements or from the parties directly.

The position is quite simple: although on the face of it, fracking is claimed to create sustainable jobs, supply energy, generate revenue for the country and assist with the reduction of carbon emissions; the sustainability and impact of each of these claims is unproven and on a daily basis, more convincingly challenged in other countries.

The pig-headed determination of the government to push fracking into South Africa on the basis of the party’s current understanding of the technology and its impact on South Africa, is ill-considered and will certainly involve the government in concurrent legal challenges – at the cost of the South African taxpayer.

This state of affairs should not be rewarded with your vote.
