MYTH BUSTING By JULES BURTON

Claire “I’ve never visited a shale gas site” Perry has now taken to handing out ‘Myth-Busting’ flyers to MP’s and correspondents. Surprisingly, for one who is so keen on exhorting us to “Follow the Science,” she ignores all the science and tells lies. Evidently science is a bit complex for her so to help her I’ve corrected all her mistakes. Incidentally Claire, when you preach in your condescending manner, telling us not to be so silly, renewables can never replace gas, why have you ignored the fact that Scottish Power has divested completely from fossil fuel and that 100% of it’s electricity is now generated by wind power?

The proposals could also increase development pressure on the countryside and increase opposition to the industry.
