I look forward to a future where our energy supplies are renewable and clean. But there's a big industry dedicated to finding and burning more fossil fuels such as shale gas.

A UK company has estimated that its reserves of shale gas could be up to 20 times larger than it thought. Its reserves could meet the UK's current demand for gas for a decade or more. But I don't think we should be spending lots of money on new, long-lasting infrastructure for gas it would be better to invest in renewable sources now.
