It's on Fracking for anyone who doesn't know. Here are some resources to use to help:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-14432401 (Introduction to Fracking)
http://www.what-is-fracking.com/ (Another good website)

Hi guys,

I'm struggling to interpret the P2, P3 and P4 figures. Are they comparative line graphs? (just read the line to the number on the side) or compound line graphs? (work out the amount by taking away the value underneath) or neither???

Please help!

Comparative, I think. P3 shows, in the early 1970s, approx 70,000 of nuclear, just over 60,000 tonnes of natural gas, slightly less oil, and so on. That's how I'm reading them.

Hi guys, I got a photocopy (which means I can highlight etc.) of my unit 4B to look at over the Easter holidays, but I have no idea what to do with it. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Here are some tasks to do which y class has been set over easter! This helps a lot with understanding the issue Gaining an Overview of the Advance Information BookletTask 1Carefully read through your Advance Information Booklet (AIB). Hopefully your teacher will have given you a photocopy so that you can write on it. You CANNOT take a marked copy of the original into the exam hall.
On the front page create a colour key:
SocialPoliticalEconomic EnvironmentalDemographicYou need to use SPEED in the exam to make sure your answers are synoptic.As you read through the booklet, asterix (*) any key terms or concepts that you don’t fully understand.
Task 2Go back through the booklet and undertake some preliminary research into the concepts and key terms that you have identified that you don’t fully understand (those you put an * next to). This will allow you to be more involved in any discussions on the materials that will happen in class. Task 3Read the Guardian article linked to Item 2: http://www.theguardian.com/environme...e-gas-industry and the comments beneath it. Make some notes on different opinions being voiced as you will need to be aware of the variety of viewpoints on this issue.Task 4Item 4 is based on an article by Yasminah Beebeejaun. Find out about her in order to decide how reliable this article is. (You can read her original article here: http://pli.sagepub.com/content/4/3/18.full.pdf+html) Task 5Item 5 introduces you to Cuadrilla who are a company involved in fracking. Visit their website: http://www.cuadrillaresources.com/ and watch some of the videos to help you expand your understanding of fracking and what is happening in Britain. Item 7 asks to focus on their exploratory wells at Roseacre Wood and Preston Road; make some notes on how far the company have got with their plans for these sites.Task 6Mike Hill gives the negative side of fracking in Item 6. However, there has been some discussion over whether this information is biased; take a look at this article: http://www.thegwpf.com/expert-report...reen-activist/ and make your own decisions. Start to think how you are going to categorise your research on the different opinions and stakeholders involved in this debate.

The centre at which you're sitting the exam should have had a copy sent to them on 22nd March. Give them a ring.

We are currently just working our way through the booklet page by page. Watching documentaries on fracking and keeping up with Fylde and Cuadrilla in the news.
