What the Frack? Drilling Down Into a Doomed Energy Plan
Wednesday, 12 October
Why does Liz Truss think fracking holds the answer to our energy crisis when so many experts disagree? Will it blight our ‘green and pleasant land’ – or does it simply not work in Britain? Ros Taylor talks to Jon Gluyas, director of the Durham Energy Institute at the University of Durham, about earthquakes, flammable water and where our energy policy is going wrong.
“We have known fracking doesn’t work in the UK for decades.”
“We are global leaders in wind technology. So, let’s focus on that.”
“We need a well thought through energy policy, something we haven’t had for fifty years.”
“Offshore oil fields provide far more of an opportunity than onshore fracking.”
