Rosie is off to Brussels...

Deal With It's coordinator - Rosie Rechter - Is off to Brussels tomorrow to present a petition on the regulations around fracking to the EU Parliament's petition committee

Rosie's petition is focussed on loose regulatory framework there is for this process. In the UK the regulations are essentially the same used in the North Sea. Hint: not many people live in the North sea ...
Good luck Rosie from us all ... more on this later in the week

Fracking or hydraulic fracturing of shale and coal layers to produce methane gas. A mix of water [lots of it], sand and a cocktail of some not very nice chemical is pumped at high pressure deep underground to explode the rock and release gas.
