Weatherford was asked to leave Switzerland following clash with corporate responsibility laws. The companies echo Enron in the removal of monies from corporation at the top of a pyramid structure. Greed and speed has destroyed so much here including water sources. Toxic and radioactive wastes are a major concern. From Stories of the Harmed you can find accounts of real families here. This is a tragic and dark horror….total denial of human rights and the dishonest manipulation of public opinion by hired academics and pr flacks. Save what is left and stop corporate abuses and devastation in the name of short term gain, long term pain.MK Hunt

UK Shale Oil & Gas Fracking is not financially viable, not sustainable, not environmentally responsible, not safe, not wanted by a majority of the population and alternative renewable sources of energy generation readily available or being built.
Alternative products will have to be trialed to replace oil & gas derivatives.
(Fracking Revolution conjures up visions of a bloody battle to the death, which is bad news)
