Britain has plenty of room to spread around the pollution from fracking.   Any salts and heavy metals that come out of a well can be spread all over the island or dumped in the ocean.   Pollution will probably be better than in the US because the EU will use better techniques.

As one of the drivers explained to me as he was getting ready to spread a load of tailings onto a farm field....   "the answer to pollution is dilution".    You just gotta spread it around.

All energy comes with some pollution.   Fracking is already prepackaged for you as a cleaner alternative.     And you can make money by letting the companies spread solids on you property.

"One person said I should be drowned" in the chemicals used in fracking, he said.

Like dihydrogen monoxide because that's the chemical that kills the most people.

If only we could convince the Germans to re-invest in nuclear, although their Solar investments are certainly enviable.

Really, this would have to come at some time, the Russian crisis is just pushing their hand now. Western countries need to free themselves of reliance on unstable countries and in the short term more domestic oil and gas is important. In the long term nuclear, wind, and solar are going to be important as well.

Europeans are in decline. Unless they're mormon.

I'm seeing bright eyed blonde Germanic looking packs breeding armies of children in Mormon communities.

"This is a very emotional topic in Germany," said Ralf farks, president of the Berlin-based Heinrich Böll Foundation

I think that Ralf could get things started.
