I 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.

Wind V. Coal
Quote of the Decade
"The trouble with wind farms is that they have a very large spatial footprint for a piddling little bit of electricity. You would need 8oo turbines to produce the output of a coal-fired power station."
Sir Martin Holgate, Chief Scientist at the Department of the Environment of the British Government - October 2004
