  • Fracking
    Article: Nov 3, 2014

    With David Cameron recently announcing 'we are going all out for shale gas', fracking (or hydraulic fracturing) is likely to happen in large parts of the UK, including the South East. Though it has the potential to tap significant onshore fossil fuel reserves, this method of energy extraction is highly contentious.
