Presently in Australia, theres been a big push to get the gas industry going flat out,and the fracking started before anyone new much about the fracking process and the environmental dangers involved.Big Global energy companies are involved, and big money is involved.

the real question is !!!!!
can we trust our politicians to make a call without compromise or will they make for the ones that gives them most money ..

if the studies shown there is no problem go for it but if it shows that it could have been fix or that we might have water and earthquake problems scrap it..

like someone above said Australia and the US have it but they also have more earthquakes and floods since it started coincidence or what
