Green opposition LMP will submit a proposal to parliament aimed at banning shale gas production in a decree, LMP’s co-leader told a press conference on Monday.
Máté Kanász-Nagy insisted that the government “gives totally wrong answers to the energy crisis” such as cutting down protected forests, increasing coal mining and “increasing gas production especially through shale gas”.
Shale gas production is “extremely dangerous and harmful” for the environment, and its drawbacks “highly override any profit or benefit” it may yield, he said. Kanász-Nagy said the production and use of shale gas involved methane emissions, which was detrimental for the climate, while chemicals used in its production would destroy the region’s drinking water stock. He added that several countries had banned shale gas production because of the technology involving a risk of earthquakes.
The energy and climate crisis call for environment-friendly and sustainable answers, such as LMP’s proposal for implementing a building insulation programme, Kanász-Nagy said.

So, from this article one must deduce that the Green Party would have all Hungarians freezing to death this winter? Gee what a great bunch of out of touch with reality fools they are. Is it any wonder Victor and Fidesz were returned once again to power.
Every single point the Green Party claims about fracking is a LIE.
The Green Party agenda is more important than the health and security of the people…..after all, the Green Party believes the world has too many people living on it, so they would not shed a tear if thousands die without natural gas.
