Letter: No data to prove fracking is safe

Have your say

You asked for comments to your news story with regard to fracking. Before I continue, in my opinion very few people understand or want to understand the detriment it will have on the enviroment, which includes myself. However enviroment is a broad term until I made the effort to find out what it means.

Doing a bit of research on the Internet I came across some shocking results, mainly coming from America and their experience of fracking and an action group set up to fight fracking, which supplies a fact sheet which I have no reason disbelieve or doubt given their long experience with regard to fracking. The document I downloaded has the heading ‘Ban Fracking’ and gives some idea as to what would happen and what we would experience, if we in this country allow it to take place.

My personal view is that it should not take place. The reason being is that there is no scientific data to prove that it is safe for plant, animal and human alike with the American experience alleging it to be unsafe.
