The minister was speaking before the Energy and Climate Change Committee, which is headed by Tim Yeo. Mr Yeo criticised the secrecy surrounding government research into the impact of shale gas operations.
\”The suspicion in the United States of the environmental impacts of shale gas has been greatly increased by the reluctance of the companies and, in some cases the regulators, to disclose to the public what\’s actually happening,\” Mr Yeo noted. He said that secrecy was holding the industry back.
Tim Yeo has substantial investments in alternative energy. Investments that would go pear shaped if we all let rip with shale gas.
