Leaving aside all of the ecological, environmental, geological and pollution concerns. The blasting of water, sand and corrosive chemicals deep into the ground to crack the bed-rock. The risk of poisoning tapwater, causing earthquakes and releasing more greenhouse gases than coal. Leaving aside all of that there are three main problems with Hydraulic Fracturing. It’s […]
While fossil fuel use trashes our planet and threatens our future, communities local to extraction sites suffer the health effects of extraction: Recent studies have shown high rates of asthma, certain cancers and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease in communities near opencast coal mines, who suffer from exposure to dust and machinery diesel fumes. The effects […]

Today’s British Geological Survey confirms what activists have been saying for months. Cuadrilla are putting together a report as to how they will avoid causing earthquakes when they drill. In reality their […]
So. Today our friends from Cuadrilla had a meeting with the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC). They were there to present the results of their ‘earthquake study’ into their geomechanical operations, and report on how they plan to minimise the possibility of earthquakes. Note, by the way, that I call it ‘their’ earthquake […]
Anti-fracking group ‘Frack Off – London’ rallied outside the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) today where industry pioneers ‘Cuadrilla Resources’ were presenting of the results of their earthquake study. The campaigners staged a mock confrontation with ‘Cuadrilla professionals’ to protest against the dangers of fracking. Hydraulic Fracturing, or ‘fracking’ is a controversial method […]
Gas is the new black. Of 60 applications to drill onshore in the UK in the latest drilling round, 20 were for gas. Details of recent drilling licenses reveal one third of the applicants applied to drill for Coal Bed Methane, Shale gas and regular gas. To sort through this mess, the UK government divides […]
