Must come as a big relief/ windfall to our Environment Minister (Amber Rudd), whose husband has invested considerable sums ££££ in these projects.

My headline in the press would be "Environmental Minister approves Fracking of fossil fuels to her husbands delight"

Residents understandably concerned about big drills causing Earthquakes?
Need a soft fluffy marketing strategy to woo opposition?

OR just say bollocks to that, call your company 'QUADRILLA' (Geddit?!) and **** the lot of 'em!!!

Force chemicals and water at high pressure deep into rock under our feet, shake it all about a bit and extract gas.

Another thing that in 100 years time people will ponder what the **** we were thinking. Actually, not sure it will take 100 years.

It'll happen, here's a clue,

The British Geological Survey estimates there could be 1,300 trillion cubic feet of shale gas in the north of England.

At the moment we have to import just over half of our gas. This is therefore a good thing.

Not to keen if its under my house but its irresistible.

Turns out the judge who sent the three peaceful fracking protestors to jail has a family business supplying the oil and gas industry and his sister (who is MD of the business) has publicly appealed and lobbied for fracking to be allowed.

Bent as f***.

Oh and in the meantime judges are set to be awarded a 33% pay rise of over £60K a year. So that they can jail people who disagree with their financial interests.

I remember the days when Labour was a working class party that supported mining in the north (and Kent for that matter).

Mad decision. I get the impression most people donít actually understand fracking otherwise I suspect there would be more public outrage.

I doubt they're doing it under towns, the odd house I suppose, but 1,300 trillion cubic feet of shale gas in the north of England. What do you think will happen, even if there's compo, it would be stupid, very stupid not to do it.

At retail that works out to about £2,000 trillion which is a lot.

Of which between 10% and 20% is recoverable.

That's a lot if we get it out safely. If.....

Rough back of fag packet calculation. 1tr cubic feet of gas is 170m barrels equivalent and we use c. 1.4 or 1.5m barrels a day. So if 1tcf is say 120 days equivalent then 130tcf at 10% extraction is sort of 40 years energy supply. Big if though regards to safety.

Damn, only £200-400 trillion, how will we ever get by.

That's just the cold north of course, there's plenty in other places. Even the quivering brethren of the Fiends of the Earth can't stop this.

'Resistance is futile' should be your by-line.

It's a fossil fuel, and there ain't no future for it. There are still billions of tons of coal under the UK but it's not going to come up anymore

The coal is far too expensive, if it wasn't for the power stations we already have we wouldn't import any. Don't forget on some days we don't use coal at all. Its also by far the dirtiest of fuels.

I doubt that shale gas would result in the use of more gas its just that we would no longer need to import gas at enormous cost. That's the benefit, far from Fang's suggestion that resistance is useless, I think we need to be getting on it asap.

As I see it there's 2 main strands to the resistance, NIMBYism which I can understand and the Green types that seem afraid of virtually everything which I can't understand.

All three freed by the High Court and given Conditional Discharges.

Good result.
