Some interesting numbers on why we should get fracking. previousLaurie Penny outs herself as an agent provocateurnextHeadline of the day 6 thoughts on “Timmy Elsewhere” bloke (not) in spain June 19, 2014 at 8:51 am You’re never going to get anywhere with facts, Tim. This is about feeding the multitude & the believers are heavily invested in loaves & fishes. Pointing out the advantages of McDonalds isn’t going to cut it. Chris June 19, 2014 at 8:57 am A good one to watch If you’ve yet to see it Tim… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cX1bsyDuAfg All the best Chris bloke (not) in spain June 19, 2014 at 9:19 am @Chris Certainly one for the sartorially challenged. Ironman June 19, 2014 at 10:55 am As bloke (not) in spain says, you’re wasting your time Tim. if the fact disproves the belief, the fact is an abomination to be destroyed. So Much for Subtlety June 19, 2014 at 10:50 pm Yeah, common sense isn’t going to get you far. Better to make a bet of greed and stupidity. I have just been looking at a map of potential shale reserves across Europe. Britain has some. So does France. Now you just know that in France shale will be sewn up by the government and handed out to their former class mates at Total or something. As will probably happen in Britain too. So there’s no point trying it there. But potential shale deposits stretch from Vienna pretty much all the way to the Black Sea – proving once again that fossil fuels are often God’s blessing and/or curse of Muslim regimes. The Ottomans were campaigning over a fortune. There is no point buying into Romania or Bulgaria, the former Communists who run those countries are just Turks who think they used to be Orthodox Christians. They will steal your investment. However Hungary also looks to be built on shale deposits. Hungary might just have the right combination of a working rule of law, not too much corruption, pretty girls – and a desperate need for foreign exchange that means it is the right place to buy some shale deposits. Even if you can’t frack right now. As does Poland I note, but not so much of a failing economy. So Much for Subtlety June 20, 2014 at 12:39 am Just in passing, I know you will all be shocked to learn that behind the anti-Fracking groups stands their usual paymaster – the KGB or whatever they call themselves these days: http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/380814/europes-anti-fracking-activists-may-be-way-more-sinister-youd-think-patrick-brennan Can’t wait for the Guardian and BBC to report this.
