Fracking

UK & IrishPosted by Fiona MacCarthy Sun, January 19, 2014 08:40:13
The gung ho rush towards fracking in the UK is very much ignoring the risk to the environment.

Im all in favour of exploration of our resources, but as the resource wealth below the top level of soil is owned by the government, and it is displaying little awareness of the risk to water and soil caused by the chemicals used in the exercise. Offering to pay off landowners is very dangerous as any clever lawyer will have a clauses saying full compensation has been made with the payment.

The anti fracking constituency is more opposed to any fossil fuel extraction. Far too much to one end of the spectrum of debate

I seek a balanced reasonable approach and a transparent debate with evidence as to the opportunities and understanding of the risks.
