Community Considerations

1. What are your views on the potential social, community and health impacts of an unconventional oil and gas industry in Scotland?

What are your views on the potential social, community and health impacts of an unconventional oil and gas industry in Scotland?
I have been very interested in facking and how the environmental lobbies come up with facts for instance fracking can pollute the ground water? Fracking can cause earth quakes? I have contacted these organizations in the past and ask for the addresses of the people who have been affected by ground water pollution or earth quakes. I have been told that because of data protection I cannot have this information. So these so called facts cannot be checked. Regarding earth quakes while I was living in Nottinghamshire when the coal fields were active many times you would feel a slight tremors which would be the coal being cut from under you and the fall of the roof after the coal has been cut. Earth Quakes are caused by the movement of tectonic plates which lay between 300 km 700 km beneath the surface. Fracking happens between 2,000 and 3,500 meters beneath the surface.

2. What are your views on the community benefit schemes that could apply, were an unconventional oil and gas industry to be developed in Scotland?

What are your views on the community benefit schemes that could apply, were an unconventional oil and gas industry to be developed in Scotland?
If fracking were to go ahead the benefits should come direct to the people not via the government or local government. When wind farms came to our area the benefits were overseen by our local council providing grants to approved schemes. When a new wind farm was built all benefits went to the council.

It would gratelly benefit the economy but as the green party has a veto on all schemes I would think that it would it will take us back to the dark ages.

I would be of great benefit as we have no coal fired power stations and we need something to keep us warm and the lights on.

What are your views on the potential climate change impacts of unconventional oil and gas industry in Scotland?
If we gave up all industry and lived in the dark it would make not the slightest difference to climate change.

7. What are your views on the regulatory framework that would apply to an unconventional oil and gas industry in Scotland?

It should be really tough and have teeth to ensure that there is no risk to the public.

8. Overall, and in light of the available evidence, what do you think would be the main benefits, if any, of an unconventional oil and gas industry in Scotland?

Cheaper gas lower bills and give industry a boost. In 2012 the energy secretary stated thast gas prices were sawing. for the next three year gas and electick bills rose by 15- 20% per year. If you look at the whoulsale price of gas for this period you would see that the price rose by about 1%. The enviromentalist lied.
