Dr Sev Kender
Dr Sev Kender describes that plate tectonics was the groundbreaking theory discovered early 20th century that actually explained everything in geology and started our modern discipline. Before it no one knew why oceans and mountains formed and continents look like they used to be linked together. So this new discovery is one of the last links in the theory that explains how geology works.

Mike Stephenson
In shale gas exploitation, most people are more worried about what goes on at the surface than deep underground. If you’ve never seen a drilling rig or a frack truck, it’s hard to imagine what it might be like to live up close to a fracking operation, but many people believe that shale gas fracking on a large scale counts as industrialization of the landscape. This article looks at the ground-level effects that people near fracking sites might experience.
