In the News

Fracking returns to the UK

Graham Watson

16th October 2018

It's been a long time since fracking's been in the news, so a new generation of post-16 economists might only have a brief acquaintance with it.

This article outlines what fracking is, the potential supply-side benefits and, of course, the fears of the negative externalities that it might generate.

We have also made a selection of tweets covering the news of the relaunch of fracking for gas in the UK.

We've also added a video below from Sky News which was given special access to an experimental nuclear plant where there is no active radioactive waste to dispose of.

Can the world obtain clean nuclear energy 'by 2025'?
