Fracking returns to the UK
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.
