The document – commissioned by Bath Council – outlines the threat of hydraulic fracturing to Bath’s thermal spa. In it, the government’s favourite fracking advisor concludes: “contamination of water resources by introduced fluids during the […]

The squeaky clean, everything by the book shale pioneers induced an earthquake back in April 2011 and have since been central to a very public unfolding of the UK shale story. The pressure has had […]
When recently-appointed Energy Minister John Hayes showed his lack of fracking knowledge last month this political huckster inadvertently highlighted a troubling fact: at Cuadrilla’s site in Balcombe, West Sussex, fractures could reach within 720 feet of the surface. Hayes claimed a Durham’s study “categorically refuted” suggestions that fracking fluids could get into aquifers. This sort […]
