A survey, released on October 3, states that Europeans would generally prefer that unconventional development of fossil fuels not occur in Europe. The consensus is overwhelmingly true among countries that are not members of the EU, with over 35% of individuals polled in EU nations answering that unconventional fossil fuels should not be developed in Europe at all.
Fifty-nine percent of the respondents from Poland, however, answered development should occur. The only other nations that looked favorably on the unconventional development of fossil fuels in Europe were Norway and Slovenia.
