France Takes A Step Forward to a Future Fueled by Renewable Energy

Countries in Europe have been working to ban and slow down the overall production of fracking.

France has recently continued their ban on this energy extraction model.

Fracking companies should follow the lead of China and transfer their funds over to renewable energy. It would increase safety for their consumers, and provide additional support to their companies.

The guardian reported:

‘No new permits will be granted to extract fossil fuels and no existing licences will be renewed beyond 2040, when all production in mainland France and its overseas territories will stop.’

The United Kingdom has seen major protests to prevent the fracking process from moving forward.

This is all happening while countries like China are pumping billions of dollars into renewable energy.

It is clear that fossil fuels create pollution from CO2 gases, and this results in heath problems for the citizens of developed countries.

Furthermore, it is the responsibility of the government to pass regulations against these unsafe practices. The United States will have to wait until 2020 to be able to have a chance at preventing the poison to infect our citizens.

It is an excellent sign to see other countries take a proactive stance on this subject, and lead by example.
