Shale gas. The way ahead?

Yes I think it is. Certainly we should be researching extraction methods to obtain it. It would obviate our reliance on those volatile Middle Eastern countries.

The world may have twice as much natural gas than previously thought, according to the rich nations' think tank the International Energy Agency (IEA).

The world may have 250 years of gas usage at current levels thanks to "unconventional gas" from shale and coal beds, Anne-Sophie Corbeau, senior gas expert at the IEA told BBC News.

And of course you don’t hear a peep about it from our governing class. All they can think of is impoverishing us further with their total obsession with Bird Mincers and solar panels.

Shale gas from Lancashire and other parts of Britain could contribute between five to 10 per cent of the country's gas needs.

  1. The Americans are apparently awash with gas at the moment. So much so that they're now exporting it instead of importing.

    Our lot will try and block development, because they know it will knock their little "Renewable Energy" scam on the head.

    I'd like to pump Chris Huhne down a well, and "frack" him..
