25 June 2015

Renowned Environmental Campaigner Paul Mobbs will be speaking at venues across South Wales next week at the culmination of his ‘Never Mind the Politics, Here’s the Fracking Reality’ Spring Tour 2015.

Explaining the purpose of the tour, Paul Mobbs said, “In the wake of the election I’m once more organising a UK speaking tour – traveling the country to bring a new perspective on the politics of energy and economic policy; and, most importantly, why the ‘fractured accountability’ of our political class, and the growing power of lobbyist and ‘special interests’, is distorting the objective reality of the “options” we are being offered today.”

The four talks in South Wales are as follows:

Tuesday 30th June @ 7:30pm
‘Going to Extremes’ – the projects to develop unconventional gas extraction in Britain
Upstairs, Old Market Tavern, 20-21 Trinity Street, Cardiff CF10 1BH

Wednesday 1st July @ 7:30pm
‘Beyond Fracking’ – the next steps in the extreme energy debate in Britain
Lesser Hall, Cowbridge Town Hall, 21 High Street, Cowbridge CF71 7AD

Thursday 2nd July @ 7:45pm
‘Beyond Fracking’ – the next steps in the extreme energy debate in Britain
Volcano Theatre, 27-29 High Street, Swansea SA1 1LG

Friday 3rd July @ 7:30pm
‘Less (is a Four Letter Word)’ – Economics, Ecological Limits and Politics
Llangadog Community Hall, Llangadog, Carmarthenshire SA19 9BR

Keith Ross of Frack Free Wales, who helped to organise the South Wales leg of the tour commented, “We’re delighted to welcome Paul Mobbs back to South Wales again. His detailed research and experience of environmental campaigning over a 30 year period have made an invaluable contribution to the campaign against fracking in particular, and on wider environmental issues.”

“Paul’s talks are invariably informative, entertaining and digestible; no previous knowledge of the subject required.”
