If you haven’t heard about “fracking” you have not been visiting this site enough and you need to listen up right now, because it’s very likely to come to a town near you!

Hydraulic fracturing or fracking is a process used by gas companies to extract natural gas trapped inside hard shale rocks deep inside the earth by flushing it out.

Why is this a bad thing we hear you ask. Well have a look at the trailer for the Oscar nominated documentary Gasland and you will understand why fracking in the UK is something we all should be concerned about.

Not only can the water used to flush out the gas from the shale rocks be poisonous for you and the environment – it can ignite!

Exploration companies claim there is a potential £70bn of gas reserves in rocks deep under south Wales, they have already started franking in Blackpool and there are applications in process for fracking sites all over the UK and Europe.
