Don’t Let Fracking Destroy English Village

Target: Tom Reed, CEO, Alpha Energy

Goal: Abandon plans to frack the land around a small English village.

Fracking may once again be coming to a small Yorkshire village, threatening the health and livelihoods of its citizens. Demand that plans to frack on this land be halted permanently.

In 2017, the village of Kirby Misperton in Ryedale was set to become the center of the U.K.’s fracking industry. Fracking hasn’t been tried in the country since earthquakes brought the practice to an end in 2011. Then, the U.K. government ordered a review of Third Energy, the natural gas company set to frack the land. Equipment was moved offsite. Now, a U.S. company, Alpha Energy, has bought out Third Energy. This signals that plans to frack may once again be on their way.

Sign the petition to demand that Alpha Energy respect the wishes of the citizens of Kirby Misperton and Yorkshire. Demand that they abandon plans to frack on their land.


Dear Mr. Reed,

Fracking has not occurred in the United Kingdom since earthquakes rocked the country in 2011. Now, this peaceful period may come to an end. The small village of Kirby Misperton in Yorkshire is under threat of hydraulic fracturing. The livelihoods of the village’s citizens are at risk, as is the countryside that surrounds the village.

Third Energy abandoned plans to frack in this location following government review. I ask that you follow their lead and respect the demands of the citizens of Yorkshire. Abandon any plans to frack in Kirby Misperton.

  1. There is absolutely no need for fracking. We need to look to the future and that is renewable energy. We must save the planet and stop fracking now!

  2. Alpha Energy needs to pack up & leave. there is no place in today’s world where fracking should be taking place. Go solar instead but kick Alpha Energy out. No more fracking in our earth!!!
