Time to resume fracking to avert energy crisis – Yorkshire Post Letters

From: Dick Lindley, Altofts, Normanton.

Should fracking be revived to tackle the energy crisis, despite previous protests at Kirby Misperton and elsewhere?

IT would appear that as a 
result of the combined 
assault on our fuel supplies 
by the eco fascists and their allies in the CO2-hating Green brigades, the cost of our
energy is now increasing exponentially.

I hope they are satisfied because their actions 
against coal, oil and gas 
have resulted in many 
ordinary people having to 
ration themselves, as they 
are unable to afford the increased cost of heating their homes and feeding themselves adequately.

We have unlimited amounts of coal, gas and petroleum 
under our feet and in the North Sea.

Should fracking be revived to tackle the energy crisis, despite previous protests at Kirby Misperton and elsewhere?

That being the case, what sort of lunatics would choose to put the EU and the UK at the tender mercies of the Russian Empire for much of our energy supplies, and not expect our reliance on them to be exploited by them if an armed conflict should occur?

It is a pity that we cannot restrict energy supplies to
 those eco warriors who are responsible for this debacle while leaving the rest of us nice and warm and enjoying home produced energy at bargain prices.

Let’s get fracking, mining and drilling to keep our people warm and well fed.
