fracking

We have received a request from Emily Budd, who is currently undertaking her dissertation at the University of Birmingham as part of her degree in BSc Environmental Science.

Emily's chosen topic is on fracking, and as part of her research she would like to gather the opinions of local people on fracking and what they perceive to be the greatest risks associated with the process.
If you have a view on this issue then contact Emily by email and she will be very grateful.

When all at once I saw a crowd
A host, of bloody fracking drills
