Non-governmental organisations are putting pressure on multilateral financial institutions not to finance production of shale gas by hydraulic fracturing or fracking because of the high environmental costs they say are associated with this method.

Suddenly, it seems as if there's anti-fracking sentiment EVERYWHERE!

I hate to be the crepe-hanger on this thread, but I just can't see the big lending institutions passing up a big return on an investment simply because it might poison our drinking water. Let's face it, these are the same lying, shameless, and heartless thieves who put hundreds of thousands of families out into the streets during the subprime mortgage crisis. I'm pleased to see that a few lending institutions have integrity and display social and environmental consciousness, but I'm guessing they are few and far between.
