I was going to write a well researched article on Fracking. I’ve done a lot of reading, and accumulated many facts, but at the end of the day, someone else has been there and done it all already. So I’ll just post this instead:
And then I have a few favorite quotes from Greenpeace: ” every single expert we’ve found (apart from George Osborne) thinks UK shale is going to be quite expensive compared to the US. All that water, all those trucks, wells far deeper than in the US and those pesky rules about not damaging the environment. But maybe George knows something we don’t, maybe they can frack on the cheap. We don’t think that sounds like a good idea, but even if they did it, here’s the thing. We already produce lots of gas in the North Sea yet our bills aren’t low.”
If we allow our government to carry on, England will be smothered in these nonsensical drilling areas. Nobody is safe. If you’d like to get involved, pop along to your nearest ‘No Fracking Way’ event on 31st January. They are everywhere, just google with your county/location. Have fun. I’ll be in Knutsford, hopefully irritating Mr Osborne!
