So the person appointed to run a business is lobbying in his company's interest and informing HMG of the ideal conditions for them to do so successfully.
He is neither right nor wrong. He is putting forward the case for meeting medium term energy requirements through fracking. Others are putting forward the risks.
Neither are bastards. Both are trying to inform. Which is a damned sight more than Lizzie Cornish's diatribe. People with genuine concerns must be rather disturbed by the association with rent a mob such people give them.
I am convinced that this matter needs sober reflection, planned utilisation where possible and rolled out slowly whilst testing the predicted negative implications. That approach is perhaps the only way forward. There are enough beds in deserted areas to test concerns.
It would be sad if we didn't exploit it through groundless fears and it is immoral to go hell bent for leather in the way this government are being portrayed as doing
I see little evidence of those concerns. Public demonstration of not feeling it has been thought through properly is commendable. Fettering on the basis of not liking a particular government is irresponsible.
