As the fracking industry tries to expand internationally, being promoted as a so-called clean bridge fuel, it is increasingly clear the industry has not one, but two, Achilles heels.
As NASA releases a “bombshell” on climate change, a new report concludes that fracking is encouraging the development of other energy-intensive infrastructure and industries which in turn produce vast amounts of carbon dioxide.
One of the main arguments that the pro-frackers put forward about adopting the controversial technology is that it is a clean, secure fuel that can be used to bridge the gap between dirtier fossil fuels and cleaner renewable energy.
