Mr Egan and his fact-based conversation

Francis Egan, the CEO of Cuadrilla, does love to bang on about the need for a “fact based” conversation. He likes to pretend that anyone who is concerned about fracking is a scare-mongering fool who is on a mission to freeze the nation’s grannies to death. We are not sure he’s quite so good with the “fact based” bit himself though.

Today the BBC reports

Cuadrilla Resources chief executive Francis Egan said: “It’s about exploiting our natural resource – we’re running out of it.
He said there was “nothing wrong” with renewable energy “but it’s not going to be enough”.

We can’t help wondering which bit of the word “renewable” he doesn’t (want to) understand?
