Environment Agency approves Fracking

The Envrionment Agency head of climate change has said that Fracking should be allowed to resume in the UK, now the potential dangers are understood.


Speaking at a conference earlier this week, Tony Grayling, head of climate change and communities at the Environment Agency, told delegates exploratory fracking should resume after the investigation.

“There are significant environmental risks associated with shale gas as there are with other industrial activities,” he was reported by news agency Bloomberg as saying. “We think those risks can be managed.”

Cuadrilla Resources, the British company exploring for natural shale gas in the Bowland Basin in Lancashire, has released the findings of the report that was commissioned following unusual seismic activity near Poulton-le-Fylde in April and May 2011.
