It’s not nimbyism to question the value of fracking

There were 39 small earthquakes in the second half of October 2018 across the UK. Thirty-three of them were within a few miles of Blackpool Tower. We found out later that the company trying to frack had gotten less than 10 per cent through its planned industrial processes. As a result, the industry immediately threw its toys out of the pram and demanded the government raise the level of earthquakes it was permitted to generate from its activities.
