'Lost city' in Greece is actually the result of a gas leak

The Telegraph article states. “These features are proof of natural methane seeping out of rock from hydrocarbon reservoirs.
“The same thing happens in the North Sea and it is also similar to the effects of fracking.” The first two claims are valid but it is not at all similar to the effects of fracking. Fracking is carried out below 3000ft in the gas reservoir and the volumes of fluid and the pressures used are not physically capable of providing a link to the surface. A 'fact' demonstrated many times most recently in the extensive 'United States Environmental Protection Agency' Report "Assessment of the Potential Impacts of Hydraulic Fracturing for Oil and Gas on Drinking Water Resources'. Readily available on line - but it is not light reading. Why must journalists link everything to 'fracking'!!! RH
