The Future of Fracking

Frack Sheet 1I agree with Fracking Shale gas and consider it a great opportunity for the UK. However with the recent roll out of enhanced opportunities I worry that we will not frack for our own needs but for multi national companies to rape our reserves and sell them to rEurope leaving us with little benefit. Profit and taxes will as usual in this brave new multi national corporate world disappear to tax havens. We have a mature oil and gas drilling industry. Use that. We saw what happened to oil and gas. Restrict development to serve our needs and ours alone. It will last into many future generations them, not just our lifetime. But I have little doubt that greed will triumph. When Politicians get involved it usually does as the lobbyists and spin doctors entertain the gullible to expense account champagnes lunches in top London eateries with a few side dishes of trips to conferences and educational visits to the more glamorous watering holes of the world. I am also sure that many politicians and bureaucrats will secure lucrative positions for their wives and children along the way with the odd directorship promised for their retirement.

About Dougal Quixote

Slightly mad. Always believes a cup is half full so continues to tilt at Wind Turbines and the politicians that seem to believe it is their god given right to ruin Scotland for a pot of fool's gold.
