Fracking - A list of those harmed.

All too often one or two aspects ( proven ) of the fracking process that appeal to the sensationalist UK press have tended to distract us. These would include flaming taps ( documented ), airborne methane ( excessive levels ), earthquakes ( literally thousands in the US – documented ) and more.

Denton, Texas says NO to fracking. Texas?!!!

At last, a relatively small town in TEXAS has voted against fracking. Sign of the times, This, don't forget is a population situated right on the edge of the so called Barnett Shale 'play'.
