This is a blessing from God I believe.
Yes , it is and it will lower the costs of maintenance for an average household as winter season can really drain out people`s pockets especially those old ones . BTW old people in Poland are not sent to pensioners houses, but they live in their apartments or houses . In overall this will make our whole society wealthier . For example gas in Poland is so expensive that eg my heating bill for 1 month is 1500 zł to heat a house of 330 square meters , my brother who lives in Toronto in similar house pays just
100 $ - 300 zł which means 5 times less , thanks to atomic power plant in Scarborough located just 10 km away east of Toronto . It iritates me a lot!!!!!
Nobody in Toronto can hear outcries about any dangers of such plant located in such a short distance from a city .
Some critics exist but I suppose that they are sponsored by major companies for which shale gas extraction in Poland is a big market competition .
For Poland it may become a mile step towards becoming a world major economic player with its due place in worlds economy that Poland deserves .
