While fracking has only just begun in this country, the Dutch are waving goodbye to years of riches from gas extraction.

Why? Because they can no longer stand the social and economic cost of hundreds of small earthquakes and thousands of properties damaged by the tremors gas extraction causes.

The Dutch were told extraction was safe and well regulated, until their houses began cracking and falling down. We report from northern Holland.
