    Better to use our own gas rather than import it, Argentina should frack Puta Muerte gas fields, if they can get the investment. Incidently it was decided last July for a company to store gas in underground caverns which incidently have not yet been constructed in Lancashire, better to pipe gas into the infrastructure rather than store it.

    Well, we have to do something,
    these gas and electric companies are just charging far to much,

    that's not to say alternatives would be cheaper.

    England is very small. I'm convinced that there will be no harm to humanity.
