Fracking: from the persective of German Churches


In Germany, "Fracking" has become a hot topic as for politics as well as for the church! The government has announced a new law regarding fracking, this however does not make clear the concrete steps that would be taken to restrict the technology properly.
Several regional evangelical churches have a position to fracking. On Nov. 12th the Synod of the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD) published a critical position, too.
Please find here the links to a map showing the regional churches with positions to fracking and a compilation of the statements of the different churches. Note that this link is in German. We are currently working on translating some of the material provided by the EKD to make sure we can share information with non-German speakers as well!
