Imagine fracking in Wales with its geology riddled with myriad closed coal and slate mines. What a monumental environmental and social disaster that would be. The geology of Scotland is one large area of underground rivers and streams...imagine the toxic affects on that water as a result of fracking. Is there no end to the mindless pursuit of profit with total disregard of the deleterious effects of the extraction practices? As long as the decision-makers in the extraction industries remain apart from the sites of their operations and its devastating impact on the land/water/people/wildlife, they will remain not only witless but unconscious.
