Letter: No fracking need!
It would seem the oil extraction companies, finding their vast profits falling, are withdrawing investment. The question now arises: where will they invest their money, and in what?
In America there has been heavy investment in ‘fracking’ to extract gas. This has led to widespread contamination of the water table, with toxic chemicals making it impossible to drink or even use.

There have been some indications that authorities may oppose fracking; presure must be put on them to do so.

Fracking as a news topic is disturbing by it’s absence: this can only mean ‘Danger Ahead’.
