P.S.
What precisely is wrong with fracking? The U.S.A.'s been doing it for 20 years with huge success and minimal associated problems - and their energy bills are down by a third to a half as a result.

We have massive shale gas reserves.

What's not to like about fracking?

I assume you`re joking Tony - I never can tell with you.  I don`t want to divert this thread onto the pros and cons of fracking but for anyone that wants a link :-

No, I wasn't joking.

This was not irony or satire.

This recent picture, and accompanying text, makes clear what a boon fracking has been to the U.S. in terms of falling energy prices:


"Fracking has helped contribute to a 40% cut in some US energy bills" [BBC News report]

[ I couldn't reproduce the pic on here, sorry, will try again ]

There is a useful discussion of issues surrounding fracking and water pollution here: basically, the alleged problems have been grossly exaggerated

Another one here:

http://energyindepth.org/national/how-anti-fracking-activists-deny-science-water-contamination/

And a balanced discussion here:

http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304537904577277814040731688

I did watch the anti-fracking video, all 18 minutes of it, as you suggested.

I agree that there can be water pollution, but basically this should not happen in a well-managed fracking operation. I concede that there is additional traffic. There was an example or two on the film of people with water pollution problems.

But all methods of producing energy have risks and casualties. I think fracking's record is very good, and unfortunately there is a lot of hysteria surrounding it produced by the very same 'green lobby' which has helped to push UP energy prices here.

In terms of hard evidence, that 18-minute film was very unconvincing
