... And that the benefits of the UK being 'energy independent' from an economic perspective (with the impact that would have on daily lives) and strategically (ensuring we were no longer so dependent on oil-rich dictatorships in the Middle-east) are underplayed.

Yes, we need to develop renewable energy but that doesn't preclude a degree of fracking. As for the other issues - (incredibly minor) earth tremors etc - they seem to be exaggerated above all proportion, seemingly to promote the aims of the campaigners with a narrow 'renewables only' position on energy they know wouldn't actually wash with the general public if they knew the dramatic consequences to their lifestyles this would lead to.
