Cann't say I feel very reassured by the agreement and the people of the UK should be very concerned....

They have taken a long time to admit this in fact they spent a great deal of time and money denying it.

There is a fair degree of concern in the UK regarding fracking, the offset is the fact that we read reports that gas prices in the US, where fracking is far more common, have fallen as a result. Gas prices in the UK have risen to the point where some people can no longer afford to heat their homes and there is little doubt that this winter, as has been the case in the past, people will die of the cold. It is a very hard choice.

Fracking will not solve your energy problems UK. The majority will go to foreign buyers such as Japan which consumes 74% of all LNG produced.
It will eff up your environment tout suite and the bill will be left to the taxpayers. Oh, and don't forget to than Lord Boris for being rich.

Well i for one have not seen anything about this in the news but then in UK they only tell you what they want you to hear like brainwashing you with what they want you too accept and BBC is the worst for this Very few people to me seem to stand up for anything now, signing petitions is one thing Physically going protesting is another You are right the energy prices will not go down they never will whatever happens This is just another lie they tell people so they think fracking will be ok Its time the people in the UK woke up to a lot of things that are going on instead of burying their heads in the sand
