case in syria where because of so the funding and precisely because of so do support you have all of these judges pouring into syria. it's good to have you with us here in our to today at the u.k. government has given the green light to a controversial gas drilling technique it's known as fracking it's heavily. sized first destructive environmental impact including causing massive water pollution takes up the story. corps driller is the only company with a license to conduct fracking in the u.k. but that's all set to change now that the government has given its blessing for the controversial method of extracting shale gas from underground already operates several wells here in lancashire but the device of technology was temporarily banned last year and with good reason to the fracking taking place here to minor

earthquake says. it was terrifying i'll be honest with you our local and pay is doing very little he said i don't know a lot about it well he should do a lot about it you're going to turn it into a tree to line shareholders pockets this is not going to benefit us and it will be a legacy toxic legacy for our children hundreds of miles away in london the capital's outspoken mayor calls shell gas on six of the nation's prayers in the reserves in lancashire america but for residents here in this trying to call corner of england it's a blight on their otherwise peaceful community and the prospect of more fracking sweeping the countryside is frightening and they keep talking about it being in line but people aren't aware of those reserves all the way down i think at the moment it's all about gasp and how much better off will be but at what cost the technology may raise fares but the promise of riches from the rush for shale gas has set politicians pulses racing despite mounting opposition which has spread

beyond lancashire. struction using hydraulic fracturing techniques is a high risk activity which has many benefits for foreign investors but very little for the people of britain for. dirty energy. it is a short term and not very intelligent solution to energy problems they're going to get money out of a grant program to. bring corrupt governments would do anything for money i think it's just sort of resource money they can just get the money so this is not really for the country's best interest and i don't believe to do that way brussels isn't convinced either the european parliament is reportedly considering regulating the budding shale gas industry concerned that britain doesn't know what it's doing by throwing itself wholeheartedly into the controversial practice of the minute we are

not self-sufficient and gas and haven't been for a very long time we were but in october we import about half of gas now we see that in the us gas prices are a quarter of what they were and how to fight this suit to output this issue to put print is much less so there are many reasons why she'll get us if it can remove. would be attractive in terms of curators blood and also probably in terms of price stability and that's what's drowning out the warnings bringing down people's energy bills means politicians and big business can press ahead even though those living in the shadow of fracking facilities know that the government is playing with fire . our tea lancashire. are back to our top story here on r.t. the ongoing crisis in syria what is to be done with it now is only the way forward that of peace talks and diplomatic negotiations moscow's claim there's no other way
