With regard to the subject of the water and chemical mixture that is used to create the fractures. Once in the ground, the water is lost from further use and nobody seems to be talking about what the chemicals are or if they are dangerous. Regardless of this and many other questions, our Prime Minister has given the go-ahead for fracking to take place in the United Kingdom. I hope he isn't making a very grave error, but he won't be one of the people who suffer if he has, you can bet on that.

Nick Greely is delusional if he thinks gas will reduce by 50% by 2020! I wonder who pays him for his erroneous theories? Probably a shale gas corporation etc. Fracking is the most ridiculous way to collect fossil fuels, EVER!

i'm not keen on fracking and shale gas propagandists, but if fracking is to be a thing, the exploitation of it should be made only by state owned companies and only after SAFE EXPLOITATION METHODS are developed. See Norwegian Statoil LINK . Shale gas exploitation as it is right now is unsafe, and why shouldn't the people benefit from these riches instead of corporations? fracking the way it is right now is extremely unethical.

Caroline Lucas addresseed the questions, Nick Greely side-stepped them. Why would that be?

I hope the people of beautiful Surrey will consider the value of their property if fracking starts in their backyard.
