Tell Barclays' Chairman to stop funding fracking in North Yorkshire.

Barclays could be about to end their ties with fracking.

Barclays PLC Chairman has told shareholders it is looking to move its money away from the fracking industry. Now we need to make sure they follow through on their promise.

Barclays Bank currently owns the majority of Third Energy 1 – the company planning to frack Ryedale, close to the North York Moors National Park. During the local planning process in Ryedale, 99% of responses opposed fracking 2.

Fracking poses unacceptable risks to our health and countryside and climate. It means digging up more fossil fuels that we can't afford to burn if we are going to protect people from dangerous climate change.

Make sure that Barclays keep its word.
