ABOUT FRACKING TIME! New Prime Minister Liz Truss Ends UK Ban on Fracking

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.08.22

The UK is taking a significant step amid a European energy crisis.

According to a report from Fox News, UK Prime Minister Liz Truss has ended the ban on fracking; her administration also announced a national freeze on household energy prices, a plan that will cost the government tens of billions.

From Fox News:

The U.K. and other European countries have faced a worsening energy crisis due to heavy dependence on oil and gas imports from Russia. Russian President Vladimir Putin limited exports to Europe after NATO countries imposed severe economic sanctions on the county for its invasion of Ukraine.

The U.K. originally banned fracking in 2019 but could restart domestic production as early as March 2023.

The energy crisis has pushed the U.K. and several of its European neighbors to reconsider their shutdown of nuclear power. Germany made loopholes in its plan to shut down its last plants last week, allowing for two to be re-opened if necessary.
