to allow more extraction of fossil fuels will increase global warming pollution and slow the uptake in renewable energy – wasting precious time to address climate change.

The whole dust up around fracking comes down to this – according to a recent study by the US Department of Energy (DOE), shale formations have the potential to increase the recoverable gas reserves of the world by 40% – and that’s a game changer, says the DOE.

Damned right it's a game-changer. NG might burn cleaner than petro gas, but our atmosphere simply can't take the same levels of carbon dioxide anymore, period.
