    As I understand it, fracking isn’t more prevalent in Europe because landowners, unlike in the US, don’t own the mineral rights beneath their property.

    You would immediately see support for drilling in many of those countries if the benefits of drilling (huge income) were seen by the same local populations as the costs (increased traffic, infrastructure construction, etc)

      You’re exactly correct.

    Poland: willing but unable. A sad pattern.
