Fracking Good Job, If True.
Many times the population yet still more sense to desire self sufficiency. Never mind global warming, use that which we have and use the time we have it, to determine the energy for the future. This greed to devour our future wealth before we have paid for today's, is utter madness.
Gas from fracking techniques has already reduced the USA's import costs and given them a glimmer of hope that debt can be brought under control. In these small Islands, grossly weighted down by an ersatz population growth, we need energy now and we need to reduce our burdensome trade and financial deficits. The greens can whinge all they like, their solutions are every bit as energy sapping as fossil fuels and exceptionally more expensive.
We can go further. More oil from around our shores, millions of tons of coal still available and more natural gas from shale than we need. The only caveats are to be careful and use modern engineering and science to allow us to be more prudent as to how we mine and drill. Not only that, we need a Government able to ensure the mineral wealth reaches all of us, not a lucky few, greedy, in the know, oligarchs. Now the latter point is more difficult than keeping the lights on and body and soul warm and fed!
