  1. All looks a bit pathetic to me . Everyone is sitting at home around the gas fire trying to keep warm while at the same time are protesting about getting gas out of the ground.you can’t have it both ways gas or freeze.

    • For the avoidance of doubt:
      1. Protests are about shale gas extraction; not needed or wanted
      2. Not all protesters heat their homes with gas (incorrect assumption ‘everyone’)
      3. You don’t need ‘both ways’, we have enough fossil fuel reserves in the world for the inevitable transition to clean energy.
      4. Your industry is dead in the water.

      Now. go back to your PR department and ask your spin doctors to come up with a less boring empty rhetoric.
