nice
Input output analysis is normal.  How many litres of water for a quantum of gas?  This type of datum has not made it's way to me..
Helpful talk full of interesting facts. The speakers obvious frustration with protesters driven by lurid media stories should not put you off. Particularly interesting is the section on understanding pollution from old mines and its relevance to fracking safety. Frankly I am convinced by these arguments that shale gas fracking in the UK is environmentally sound.
