Irritating Mr Osborne

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:

Green Party policy pointer - fracking

Green Party policy pointer - fracking2

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!

About Olivia N Masi

From art college drop-out, to office space-planner, to back-packer, to air stewardess, to brolly babe, to model agent, to wildlife conservationist. How? I've always believed in jumping at every opportunity that comes my way. This has taken me along some bizarre career paths. None of which I regret. I have been to amazing places and met fascinating people. And having worked in the motor sport industry I've sadly experienced too many beloved friends take one adrenalin step too many. I think of them always. I've hung out with pop-stars, sports personalities, and millionaires. I reached a point when nothing but VIP would do. And then something happened. My pops passed away and I felt the need to reconnect with my Italian side. Whilst in Italy, I learnt to be resourceful, to recycle everything, to listen to the valley, to grow my own veg, to catch and tame feral cats, and to follow my heart. My heart led me to a desire to save this beautiful Earth, and all the wonderful life upon it. And so I read, and then I studied with the Open University. I suddenly found myself accepted on a BSc in Wildlife Conservation, having left school with pitiful qualifications. So here I am. A qualified Wildlife Conservationist. A scientist I suppose. I love nothing more than to listen to birdsong, and watch, learn and photograph wildlife. So here is to me getting the perfect job where I can contribute to saving one of Earth's beautiful species. Do I miss the glamour of the old life? The VIP lifestyle? The petrol-head adrenalin? The buzz of being a successful business owner? Only occasionally. Though it seems more like the distant dreams of a previous life.
