Hi there is a post on the BBC site I thought some people might be interested in, its a report about the haemful em missions from shale gas. I know shale fracking is worrying a lot of people so thought I would post it for you

"Compared to coal, the footprint of shale gas is at least 20% greater and perhaps more than twice as great on the 20-year horizon, and is comparable over 100 years," they write in a paper to be published shortly in the journal Climatic Change.

So much for a green energy...

Shale Drilling is going to be expensive for the planet in so many ways

An excellent example of how "new" technologies get rushed along at the expense of the planet that sustains us. We should think more about the future of our children rather than our immediate (and dirty) energy needs and reevaluate how we live day to day.

Honestly, it doesn't matter what ill-effects this has.
Put enough money in someone's face and they'll sell anything.
Their land, regardless of the destruction it causes....for money.

So why even bother saying its worse?
Humans will still take money over a healthy environment.
Thats what this world is set up for, money first, then everything else.

Disgusting, but so true.

It's completely disgusting.

Remember our old chap, CFCs?
Look what ill-effects are occuring because he plowed his way through our stratosphere. We're just realising how deadly he was.

The corrupted individuals, states are complete idiots. They think they can buy everything with money, little do they realise trying to rectify it is going to be much, much more costly.

Money is just PAPER.
Stop lusting over paper and start thinking about the consequences, you sick morons.

What worries me the most is the fact that your friendly gov't wants to tax the things that are basically the by-products of big corporations. In reality, our system is set up so that even basic living in every country relies on modern day luxuries. Is that a sign of progression? I think not...

Am I the only one that thinks we should have produced a cleaner energy source decades ago?
Suppression by big corporations? A conspiracy indeed.
Relying on things that damage environments and atmosphere is not only illogical, it's expensive.
And we have to foot the bill.

But our culture relies and practically thrives off fossil fuels.
So is it our fault? Because we can 'live' without it?
Or is it because our 'system' is set up to use money in exchange for necessities?
Shouldn't some things be free?

Don't we pay enough taxes to actually make some things free?
Oh wait, our tax money funds wars for more fossil fuels!
And pay for banks to default on debts!
Our tax money is used sensibly!
That's right!
