Deep in the rainforest just 60 miles from Machu Picchu in Peru they are pumping out shale gas – not for the poor locals, but for us far away in the UK. Very soon the first tanker (owned by those wonderful folks who brought you the Gulf of Mexico oil spill) full of the Puruvian gas will dock at the Isle of Grain in Kent. Naturally you'd expect Friends of the Earth and Greenpeace to be up in arms (and they really are) but even supporters of fracking in the UK are quite upset because they say that we should be using our own fracking gas. Sometimes you just can't do right for doing wrong, wrong, wrong.
