Fracking friend or climate campaigner? The two sides of Jeremy Hunt

Conservative leadership hopeful Jeremy Hunt has vowed to “turbo-charge” the UK if he becomes prime minister to make it the “most high-tech, greenest economy in Europe”. But from leading the UK’s bid to host the all-important UN climate talks in 2020 to endorsing oil and gas projects in rural areas, Hunt has a mixed record when it comes to environmental issues.
