Environment Secretary Owen Paterson
George Osborne of the UK government is handing huge tax breaks to companies setting up fracking wells across the already crowded UK countryside. Instead of investing properly in renewables, the UK is in the pocket of huge multinational mining companies who want to drill down 8,000 feet with 40,000 gallons of toxic chemicals which have been shown to leak into groundwater, using up 1 - 8 million gallons of water per fracking operation - all for huge profits and tax relief paid for by the UK tax payer.
