– You can join in the discussion, please leave a comment below –

Proposed (P5):  “A review of historical and modern records of natural seismicity in Ireland. An assessment of the nature and magnitude of induced seismicity associated with hydraulic fracturing operations, with reference to North America and UK…”
First reaction
Looking at the scope of this area of research, it seems to us that this study should form part of the EIS required in applying for an Exploration Licence.  We cannot see why this study should be paid for by the Irish (or EU) taxpayer when such studies can be done by the companies interested in UGEE.
Possible discussion points
  1. That these studies should be reduced in scope or omitted altogether.
  2. That such studies be required of any company wishing to apply for an Exploration Licence.
  3. That the EPA oversees such studies to ensure independence
