Fracking - will we get any gas?

Will Drilling Results Match the Hype?

(Note:- I wrote this last week but forgot to click the publish button! So, lukewarm off the presses, it appears at last!)

This article injects some doubt into the hope/fear that there is a lot of gas in the UK obtainable by hydraulic fracturing (aka "fracking"). (The author is called John Underhill, which is a lovely name for a geologist!)

You can also read about it in the FT, the BBC and the Guardian and no doubt in other newspapers. 

There are an awful lot of words, but, as yet, no gas.

Prof Underhill doubts if the UK's geology makes it suitable for fracking.
