'Anything but coal must be the motto'

A former Greenpeace leader said the green movement needs an "urgent rethink" over energy sources and claimed it was time to "frack on".

While opponents claim fracking would desecrate the countryside, pollute water supplies and produce thousands of tonnes of global warming gasses, Stephen Tindale disagrees.

In a personal film from Lancashire for the Daily Politics soapbox series, he said: "If we want to keep the lights on, and stop burning coal, it's time for green campaigners to stop saying 'frack off' and time to say 'frack on'."
