Public Opposition to Fracking

Aren't most people opposed to fracking in the UK?


No, that's not the case at all. The most trusted, long-running opinion research on this is the Government's quarterly Public Attitudes Tracker. It has consistently found that:


~ 20% support fracking
~ 50% have no strong opinion
~ 30% oppose fracking

That means that, actually, around 70% of people want it to go ahead or are at least neutral. Opponents are therefore in the minority.
