Fracking again - -

 Scientific view from the Geological Society
 Good scientific (unbiased) discussion by Professor Davies of Durham
 Report by the Royal Society
 The Government's position:
 Report by the House of Commons Energy Committee
The reader sending these links has been told by a number of Professors that the ready availability of pseudo data on the web has decreased the ability of students to research and analyse data and develop their own arguments. This is the first time I have encountered it for myself.

Well done for airing the pros and cons  of fracking.  As long as the companies refuse to tell us the chemicals to be used, or where the huge amounts of water will come from (and go to afterwards), I think there are reasons for objecting besides the greenhouse gas one.
