UK - Who convinced the BBC?

'Concrete and steel will ensure safety of fracking fluids'. Really? Are those who promote this type of thinking remotely aware of the failure rate of concrete casings/sleeves? Is anyone aware of the level of staff reduction in the Health and Safety Executive under the Cameron Government?

Read the report of the report here:

Lastly, has anyone in the UK taken just five minutes to research failure rates in the much vaunted US gas - fracking field? Industry figures put the failure rate at somewhere between 6% and 16%. Certainly in UK offshore operations it can be as high as 27%.

And of course look what can happen when well casings are damaged by the contractors themselves.....
