Fracking report goes missing

According to a letter published in the Guardian yesterday by Dr Robin Russell-Jones, a report from the UK Climate Change Committee on Fracking which was promised by end of May has yet to see the light of day.

Dr Russell-Jones, who gave expert testimony on fugitive emissions of methane, muses on whether the likely findings of any such report are simply too problematic to publish (from the point of view of a government which seems very keen on the industry).

Dr Russell-Jones is a well-known environmental campaigner and has been instrumental in influencing government policy in several important areas over the past 30 years.
