Energy is a fraught issue, especially for MPs worried about it being dug up, or put up, in their constituents back yards - but ultimately choices will have to be made as to our energy future.
Drawing on the The Guardian's excellent data blog and our own fusion table on existing shale liscenses and unconventional gas operations we've drawn up a searchable map to discover which MP's may be particularly jumpy, and about what. Type in the name of an MP to see what they have in their constituency (hint: it turns out the jumpiest often have nothing to worry about).
Wind data from February 2012, sourced by The Guardian available via Google fusion.
Constituency data also from The Guardian, available via Google fusion.
