Energy prices in the UK are not high enough yet – don’t worry – they will be. And once the pain point is reached, people will vote for a party that promises them to clean up this shale mess and get the rigs drilling. Don’t wait to eagerly though – the KoolAid is strong with the people and green propaganda has learned its lessons from totalitarian regimes of the past. Peoples minds are so poisoned by this onslaught of disaster news, they won’t feel the heat for quite a while. Just like the simmering frogs. It will happen though – the question will only be how boiled we will be then.
The UK’s commissioner for shale gas, an advocate for the public, has quit after six months, saying government policies and strict rules on hydraulic fracturing are stunting activity.
