Storm deaths at French camping site in Herault | The France News Net - Latest stories | Scoop.it

Five people have been killed after a flash flood at a camp site in Herault in southern France.

Initial reports said a man and two women had died and two more women were missing as violent storms battered a large area of the south.

A small river that runs along the Lamalou-les-Bains site burst its banks in the early hours of Thursday, sweeping up caravans and motor homes.

Earlier, a woman died after falling into a swollen river further north.

Emergency services have had to rescue hundreds of people in the Herault as well as the neighbouring Gard and Aveyron areas.

Shale Fracking Is a “Ponzi Scheme” … “This Decade’s Version of The Dotcom Bubble” … “A Lot In Common With the Subprime Mortgage" | Zero Hedge

Shale Fracking Is a “Ponzi Scheme” … “This Decade’s Version of The Dotcom Bubble” … “A Lot In Common With the Subprime Mortgage" | Zero Hedge | The France News Net - Latest stories | Scoop.it

Bloomberg wrote in May: Shale debt has almost doubled over the last four years while revenue has gained just 5.6 percent, according to a Bloomberg News analysis of 61 shale drillers. A dozen of those wildcatters are spending at least 10 percent of their sales on interest compared with Exxon Mobil Corp.’s 0.1 percent. “The list of companies that are financially stressed is considerable,” said Benjamin Dell, managing partner of Kimmeridge Energy, a New York-based alternative asset manager focused on energy. “Not everyone is going to survive. We’ve seen it before.”

French-News-Online.com's insight:

France scores again on Europe's energy front, first it bet on nuclear energy for electricity generation in the 50s and then in 2011 it announced a total ban on fracking for shale oil and gas! Sensible on both counts as it turns out.
