Why the UK government finally gave up on fracking. And why American shale drilling will crash.

After years of dogged support for fracked shale gas and oil, at the expense of clean energy, the Conservatives finally gave in today. This is a significant victory for environmentalists. But the implications are global, substantial, and fully explored in this presentation.

Those who would like the original powerpoint, with source urls as notes, can find it – with all my other source files, for free use – in this folder.


  1. Jeremy
    Another excellent and insightful presentation, thank you.
    In particular I think slide 126 portrays the future.
    Hopefully if that message is pushed hard things may change more rapidly as current CEO’s and others think they might face real retribution in the next 10 years or so.

  2. Thank you for your usual detailed eye-opening exposure of the decline of the fossil fools.

    What is your view of the Tory apparent reversal of the fracking moritorium?
