So, what’s all this rumpus about shale gas? Well it’s highly topical at the moment – see the guardian’s recent top story. It’s all about natural gas trapped in shale formations with a method known as fracking to enable extraction. It’s controversial for all sorts of interesting reasons but congruently a potential major source of alternative energy. Big in the States and Canada but also being tested out in the UK.
