Regulation of the unconventional fossil fuels extraction; Climate change considerations. Report commissioned by the European Commission Directorate General for Internal Policies

John Broderick, Kevin Anderson

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

    Abstract

    This report considers the second part of Petition 0895/2012e, namely the petitioner’s concerns around the inclusion of natural gas as a “low carbon” fuel source within the Horizon 2020 research programme. We conclude that this is a legitimate complaint due to the conflict with Horizon 2020’s broader objectives and with the EU’s internal and external climate change commitments. All fossil fuels would be regarded similarly.
