Not only should I stop writing. I should stop reading because it only ends up upsetting me.
Here's a blog from a fella who writes for The Telegraph. The title of his piece is, "How many died in the great Blackpool earthquake of '11?"
So, should we keep fracking until we have a deadly earthquake?
Are earthquakes the only danger associated with fracking?
James Delingpole is right that the threat of a major quake in Britian is slight. But his focus is far too narrow and he's resorting to name calling.
Enviromentalists Scaremongering. So, I'm just making a big fuss over nothing. Maybe he'd feel differently if he lived beside a fracking pad. Or, if
his water was suddenly combustable. Or, if it were his home that started showing cracks from structural damage caused by fracking. It's always easy
to agree to something going on in someone else's nieghbourhood.
Here's a hypothetical question. How would he feel about that title if fracking caused a major quake and lives were lost?
The oil lobby wants proof. And the only proof they seem to want to accept is blood.
"There Will Be Blood"
It's a movie. Watch it.
The simple fact is that fracking causes earthquakes. The news has finally began to break on the main stream media sites.
As I said, I am possessed by the small. This story seems small at the moment and is barely a ripple.
But the implications are huge. The United Kingdom, the United States, and many other countries have rolled the dice and made their big, long term bets
on fracking. This dirty little secret (the pollution and the dangers) threatens to throw a wrench into their new machine's gearbox. They've set up
the dominoes, and this, small thing, threatens to knock over whole works.
Let me say it again. Because it's the first "proof" ever. Fracking causes earthquakes.
One last thought. That blogging fella seemed to think the nuclear reactor problem wasn't such a big deal.
I don't need to bet, because no one would bet against me. I bet he'd not want a reactor in his backyard either.
Folks. All our backyards back up against someone else's backyard. We're all neighbours.
You need to stop the gas boys dogs from peeing and fracking on your neighbour's lawn. Because next, they'll be coming to your home.
