    Fracking.....Do we want it in Britain ?

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 13 Jan 2014, 1:29 pm

    After David Cameron took a stance on allowing the Fracking for natural shale-gas all around the UK the environmental groups have warned that if this continues there will be serious troubles on the streets of Britain.

    Find more about this from the BBC site HERE




    Well folks, how do YOU feel about this subject when one considers that if Fracking goes ahead on all of the potential sites already earmarked we have been promised to see many jobs being created, our energy bills being reduced and fewer expensive imports from America for this kind of gas.

    Do we want it here ?

    No we bloody don't !

    The first reason is that we have no idea how much damage this could do to the environment.

    The second reason is that if you think that we might get cheaper gas-bills out of this you are living in cloud-cuckoo-land.

    The Americans have made a lot of money out of their massive shale-gas output using fracking, and I am in two minds about us doing it too.

    I would like to know more about the real environmental cost of using this method of getting gas from under Britain before supporting it.

    Anybody ?
