There must be very few people who haven’t heard something about ‘fracking’ or, to give it its full name, ‘hydraulic fracturing’.

Fracking is heralded by Government, Operators and the mainstream media as ‘nothing new’ as it has been used in oil and gas exploration over several decades. That’s true in relation to fracking but fracking is not shale gas fracking! Opposition, strong opposition, is against the latter not the former. Indeed, Shale Gas Fracking is currently banned in countries such as France and Germany!
