Much has been written recently about fracking - both in favour and against.

Given both the potential advantages and disadvantages of the technology, it is a pity that most comments have been written without any real knowledge of facts in the UK.

For heaven’s sake, let us at least make some exploratory wells to sort out real facts about shale in this country.

Then, and only then, can we take some real decisions. It’s far too important to do otherwise.
