LETTER: Gas and oil wells

If Mr Howard (‘Unlock Reserves’, Middy letters, March 3) is content to see large areas of West Sussex including the Downs dotted with the hundreds of oil and gas wells that would be necessary to make them economically viable, multiplying by hundreds the small but not insignificant risk carried by each one of them (not to speak of their contribution to global warming) it is his business.

But I doubt if many of your readers will share his equanimity.
