Fracking the last bits of gas that are identified - think about the dangers. Its not as if gas is our last option there are other things we can do safer things, things better for the environment. The queen may allow it but i certainly wont i think it should be banned -Up to 600 chemicals are used in fracking fluid, including known carcinogens and toxins. Fracking also cause earth corruptions/tremmas.

It may be a huge discovery , but does that make it right ? My answer to that is no it shouldn't be allowed ,it isn't right and frankly i don't know why they feel a need to put us at such a risk . There are other options other than this i think that its time we all had our say in this and say what we believe in before they make a huge mistake!!

How is fracking dangerous? Tons of fracking goes on in my area and I can see no adverse effects. Where is the evidence for any of this? My town was dying off before we got hit by a huge fracking boom. We are talking about a a technology that opens up a ton of new resources and makes energy a lot cheaper. You can talk about alternatives, but clean energy is extremely inefficient and uses tons of land. The produced energy of only ONE nuclear power plant is equal to the energy of a solar farm the size of L.A. or a wind farm the size of Connecticut. When you ban fracking, you are banning jobs. Do you really want to deny people paying jobs for the sake of possible danger? Also, because fracking lowers the cost of energy, it becomes easier for poor people to get energy. Many claim fracking is new and dangerous. This is very false. Fracking has been around for over 60 years, we have only now found how to frack horizontally through rock for a much higher yield.
