Two things concern us at this point.
The first is the increasing likely hood that Germany will gradually move in the direction of fracking as it burns more coal following a halt to nuclear operations folowing the Fukishima debacle thus leaving France as the only major European player with a moratorium in place.
The other is Ségolene Royal who as France's third Environment Minister in the current administration has now declared that she would not be 'dogmatic' in the matter of fracking 'given the possibility of new, safer, alternative techniques'. Does she know something that others do not we wonder? This of course flies in the face of former hubby F.Hollande's previous stance where he promised that there would be no fracking 'on his watch'.
We remain concerned. Ed.
