In March 2012 there was a high pressure blowout on the Elgin Platform. This thread www.abovetopsecret.com... ended with
Looking at the history of this enterprise it's difficult to see how anyone could be surprised at the equipment failure. The timing of this leak
couldn't have been more convenient for the industry. Just when it was being decided whether the fracking operations near Blackpool should continue
after causing minor earthquakes.
Total allowed the G4 to blow out. Blowouts are never inevitable. Blowouts never happen without mistakes being made.
Here at 1:43 we have the main man saying "Everything's proceeding as plann... as it should."Proceeding as planned? Why did
he suddenly change his wording?
It looks very much as if politicians and industry leaders were tricked into backing fracking by staging a horribly dangerous situation on a high
pressure gas platform. Fracking could seem safe in comparison. No-one would take brinkmanship to that level? Or would they?
It would be socially awkward for me to explain why I doubt the authenticity of fracking protest here so I'll skip that. I'm against all drilling. I
think we should cuddle up with little bunny rabbits to keep warm and walk everywhere. No impractical green dreaming from me. Of course I'd like to
see the portaloos sabotaged at each and every fracking site. The surefire way to stop work. But I feel the emphasis on fracking protest has been
artificially stimulated by spooks.
It's like we've been set on a collision course with possibly Russian gas as the solution. Interesting that Russian nuclear fuel deals seem more or
less uninterrupted by hostilities. Or at least that's what I heard, I haven't looked deeply.
Where do you put the meter? Isn't that the question asked about every big energy system? We don't actually have to live such energy greedy
lifestyles, if we did we would never have evolved. I'm looking at this from the viewpoint that energy giants play around with all of us then lie back
and listen to the endless kerching of the cash register.
Well, perversely Russia who clamps down ruthlessly on environmental groups at home, has been supporting and funding (some accuse) environmental groups
to oppose fracking. Obviously, Russia's economy is reliant on gas and the last thing they want is competition!
