The High Court has ruled that Theresa May can only invoke Article 50 through Parliament.
The judgment was clear. But what's still deeply unclear is what a Brexit could mean for our environment. We already know fracking companies are standing at the ready.
One of the only things holding us back from total environmental destruction are European environmental laws designed to protect us from frackers gone wild.
Can you chip in to make sure we can protect our environment no matter what happens with Brexit?
Fracking uses a technique of breaking up rock to release natural gas, and there are serious environmental and public health concerns, including chemical exposure, toxic drinking water, nosebleeds, and headaches.
For the families on the front lines, fracking could mean their green, peaceful villages become a grey, industrial graveyard -- overnight.
For the rest of us, it could mean more earthquakes, more fossil fuels burned, and even more climate change. In 2011, fracking operations already triggered two earthquakes in Blackpool. Just this year, fracking has been tied to earthquakes in Oklahoma.
We don’t have much time to turn back the tide on fracking. The new government is all out for shale and is doing all it can to fast track applications.
They'll be popping the champagne open at the local fracking company HQ if they don't have to comply with those pesky EU environmental laws -- fracking companies know this government will relax regulations if we let them do it.
Could you chip in?
