      Putting this here, as it may have serious implications for property owners (and indeed tourism) in that region

      Permission given to start sub-ground extractions (article in Spanish)

      If people move out of the area (when the earthquakes start) it may even be good news for wildlife!

      This is disgusting news. Fracking should be banned everywhere, but using a National Park? PP cannot be ousted from office soon enough.

      Since the US is leading the way on fracking – I assume you have the same feelings about the current Obama administration.

      How many earthquakes have been caused since the huge increase in fracking in the US over the past 5 years? (genuine question – maybe a few in Texas I believe, but not much else?)

      Yes I do.

      It isn’t just earthquakes – it is contamination of the water supply, destruction of ecosystems, use of chemicals, etc.

      is it a PP issue? I thought the PSOE were in control of the Andalucia region?

      In Cantabria the PP government is doing its best to ban fracking

      http://elpais.com/elpais/2013/01/30/inenglish/1359554752_960260.html

      After months of protests in the region, the Cantabria government of Ignacio Diego, of the Popular Party (PP), last December drafted a bill to prohibit fracking. If passed in two to three months — as the regional government expects — Cantabria will become the first region in Spain to ban the method.
