    Every Dollar or Pound spent on foreign fuels is one less in your economy In effect a tax on your GDP that is sent to unfriendly nations! WHAT kind of FOOL would want to do that ?

    Energy is the fundamental building of a modern nation’s wealth. Why would a patriot want to deliberately beggar his countrymen in favor of their nation’s competitors? …pg

    Game over, for now at least…

    The UK will impose a moratorium on fracking, effective immediately, following the publication of a damning scientific study on Saturday.

    A new report by the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA) warned the technique had a dangerously high risk of causing disruption to local communities through earth tremors of unpredictably high magnitude. The government announced on Saturday it would therefore issue a complete ban on the procedure.

    Of course there haven’t been any ‘high magnitude’ tremors, but there’s an election coming up 😐

    “of unpredictably high magnitude.”
    if it can’t be predicted then how do you know that there’s a chance of it to occur??

    the lack of logic in a quasi religious political crusade is sickening. So is the economic suicide pact currently in vogue in Parliament.
