Fracking Opponents Find Lawyers Beat Superglue in Slowing Shale

Campaigners desperate to prevent the birth of a U.K. shale-gas industry have glued themselves to walls, barricaded country lanes and climbed drill rigs. Yet their most potent weapon is more prosaic: lawyers.

Sometimes you have to fight fire with fire and work within the system.

Everyone wants to fight this but can they hold out against the government The difference in France is obviously the government is not for doing it anyway
I dont trust governments They always find some way round things or do underhanded stuff to get what they want

Super gluing themselves to walls and etc;...........a little too far for me! I spoke with a guy a couple weeks ago that knows about how the fracking works and he explained it to me and also explained why people are in such an uproar about it and the fact that they are not given the full information on it. In all honesty what he said made perfect sense to me and showed me that much of the fracking concern is unnecessary.

There are very good reasons for banning fracking, one of which is the vast quantities of water involved.In some areas of the UK which are densely populated and quite dry of late this would pose a significant problem,one which the water companies are concerned about.The government can only see the money involved for the treasuryand could not care less about how the environment,wildlife and the population of the UK are affected.
Millionaires to a man they won't be affected and probably have shares in the companies involved.However I don't think it will be as easy as they hope!

Fracking is one of the most if not #1 cause of environmental terracide. Wait until the effects are felt in those states 5 - 10 years from now.
