News24 – February 2014 – Kgalagadi and the threat of fracking

It’s largely unknown, but there are plans afoot to prospect for coal bed methane gas on the Botswana side of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. As in Chobe National Park and Central Kalahari Game Reserve, the Botswana government has issued licences to several energy companies to prospect. Full scale fracking could occur in these wilderness areas…and it breaks my heart. Plus, does it make economic sense, especially when surface water is already in short supply, and fracking could contaminate the ground water? Read my article on News24 about it…
