As the bell clinks, so the fool thinks. I hope that they won't find anything.
Sadly they've found lots. There is good and bad in this.
The bad is that much of it has to extracted by artificial fracturing, which involved pumping water down. That water comes back up as gunge, very polluted. In a hot country most of it it evaporates away. In Poland it would lie in very nasty pools until something is done with it. This is a simplification - the details are even worse.
The good think is that most of this is 'reserve' gas rather than useable. Meaning it stays down there and looks good on the national balance sheet.
Not depending on Russia is a good thing. I am not exactly pessimistic, but things should be tangible to really start celebrating.
Russia has vast open spaces, land that can easily be poisoned for a few generations. Poland is different.
Watch Gasland, that'll put you off it
Yes. People in any country that is threatened with fracking (including southern England) should watch this.
There's plenty of gas elswehere in Europe that can be got by cleaner and safer means. Better to use that.
