Fracking bans in the US are 'confusing' the Oil and Gas industry. Nothing confused about those guys - they know exactly what they are about. Exploiting underground/sea resources of the dirty/fossil type for maximum ( obscene ) amounts of profit long after their extraction has ceased to be relevant and at a time when every penny needs to be invested in renewable sources is not the behaviour typical of a 'confused' industry. The relevant minister has declared that 'there is a lot of misinformation about fracking'. Dead right and most of it coming from their side of the fence.
