West Sussex is under threat. Fracking company Celtique Energie has two applications to drill in and around the South Downs National Park. And this is just the start.

But the good news is that we’ve already managed to delay both applications through thousands of objections. And now a local anti-fracking group is calling for all of West Sussex to be declared Frack-Free.

The local residents’ group Keep Kirdford and Wisborough ‘Green’ have set up a petition on the council’s website. Please support them by adding your name.

Sign the petition for a Frack-Free West Sussex

West Sussex sits on shale rock formations, which could hold significant resources of shale oil. And fracking companies are keen to exploit these resources. But if drilling goes ahead, it could put more pressure on local water supplies, increase traffic in the local lanes and threaten protected wildlife, such as bats and songbirds. And that’s before we’ve even mentioned the impacts on climate change.

We have less than two weeks to gather 3,000 signatures from anyone who lives, works or studies in West Sussex. If we reach 3,000 names the County Council will have to debate the petition at full Cabinet.

Add your voice to the growing call to keep West Sussex Frack-Free

We’re already half way there. With just 1,500 more signatures, we can win a discussion about a Frack-Free West Sussex.

With hope and thanks,

Nikki and the fracking team

Big-Pharma Vaccines Deemed ‘Safe’ by Big-Pharma Funded ‘Study’

‘RT’s article, “Vaccines don’t cause autism, complications extremely rare – study,” states that:

There is no evidence that immunizing vaccinations cause autism while any complications arising from their administration to children are extremely rare, new analysis comprised of 67 research studies has discovered.

“There is strong evidence that MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) vaccine is not associated with autism,”the study’s results said.’

It is insanity to believe the industrialisation of fracking isn’t going to harm our planet, causing death zones of greater magnitude destroying our wildlife, our plants and eventually cause serious water shortages!

It is the extinction button these greedy corporate psychopaths are willing to press at the expense and great cost of our planet.

The fossil fuel industry with aggressive drilling technology is ecological suicide, by venal politicians fondling their pockets for more profits.

Our deformed corrupt capitalist economic model is a model of death-destruction and pollution. It must be changed!

 

Hydro fracking is an aggressive and dangerous method of extracting natural pockets of gas and our current political apparatus is ignoring the public’s pleas and much educated demands by saying ‘no’ to this exploitation.

The evil’s crippling our economy, are planning to cripple earth also systematically stealing earth’s natural resources with a model of corrupt capitalism, a model of pain and death that has strangled democracy further into obliviation.

Anti-Fracking-in-Manchester-2994521

Dear Street Democracy,

Shocking news.

Today David Cameron announced plans to let fracking companies drill under our homes without asking us. 

He suggested an appalling change to the law that almost three-quarters of the people in Britain oppose.

The Prime Minister is trying to put fracking company profits before our right to decide what happens underneath our homes. But MPs will have the final say on whether these changes become law.

So we’ve joined up with our friends at Greenpeace to launch an urgent petition to all MPs.

Please add your name

Cheney

Just last week we celebrated three years of keeping our homes and communities free from dirty, dangerous fracking. The fracking industry and Government know they’re losing this struggle. That’s why they’re trying to change the rules. But we can stop fracking companies from ripping up our countryside and polluting the climate.

Sign our petition asking MPs to oppose this underhand attempt to allow fracking under our homes

945572_460379020720415_819738100_n

These plans are hidden and kept away from public knowledge. This is a serious crime against humanity and we have every right to have our free, clean, unlimited energy.

You’ve helped communities across the country hold back fracking in their area. Now we need your help to make sure MPs don’t let the Government take away the right to object to fracking underneath our homes. Let’s stand up to this disgraceful bullying tactic together.

Best wishes,

Nikki & the fracking team

Fracking is the extinction button ready to be pressed. We cannot allow the destruction of our planet, the pollution of our natural water for the few greedy individuals wishing to profit.

Ask MPs to stop companies fracking under homes without permission

Fossil fuel companies fracking under people’s homes without asking them. That’s what David Cameron wants. And he’s sneakily trying to change the law to make it happen.

Please don’t let him get away with it. Sign our petition below. And share it far and wide. Thank you.

Why the petition? We need as many MPs as possible to vote against this change in law.

A petition with tens of thousands of our names will put great pressure on MPs to vote no.

What’s more, we’ve teamed up with Greenpeace to get as many names as possible.

Please sign now

Greenpeace activists arrived at David Cameron’s very own home and set up a fracking site

It’s official: David Cameron today used the Queen’s Speech to launch his plan to change the law. He wants to rob us of our right to stop fracking firms drilling under our homes.

To do it, he’ll have to get the majority of MPs to vote for the plan. But lots of MPs are already unsure about fracking, especially in their own constituencies.

We’ve launched an emergency petition to MPs. If they hear from thousands of their voters that we want them to vote against David Cameron’s plan, they will start to understand what a backlash they could face.

This morning, just before the Queen’s Speech, Greenpeace activists arrived at David Cameron’s very own home and set up a fracking site.

It’s already making news websites and getting the attention of MPs – but it’s voters they listen to most.  So sign to add your voice:

The fracking industry’s plans are on shaky ground. Just last week, Cuadrilla boss Francis Egan claimed that if firms like his aren’t allowed to drill under our homes without permission, fracking in the UK could grind to a halt [1].

I still can’t believe David Cameron is so happy to auction off Britain to the fossil fuel industry.  But I know that when hundreds of thousands of us come together, politicians can only turn away for so long. From protecting forests, to defending the Arctic and our oceans, we’re strong when we work together!

Thank you,

Richard and all of us at Greenpeace

PS: 74% of the British public are against David Cameron’s plan to allow companies to drill without permission [2]. So in the coming weeks, he’ll be going on a huge charm offensive, hoping to convince MPs. Sign the petition, and help push back:https://secure.greenpeace.org.uk/fracking-law2

The Industrialisation of Fracking by Corrupt Capitalist’s-We Should Fear This-California’s Fracking Boom Just Got Busted

California’s Fracking Boom Just Got Busted

Fracking is the extinction button ready to be pressed. This hypocrite knows this and is fighting not to have fracking in his home town.

Street Democracy writes: 

The industrialisation of the fracking industry is our greatest fear and one we the people at grass level, will have to keep fighting.

To turn our green belt into the picture below is frightening and unnecessary.

This is the ecological disaster, the ecological suicide of our most beautiful and most sacred planet and the deception by our government and by corporate greed is most evident.

BjW24LrCUAAbjB3

It’s even pretty to look at..Green and holistic but they won’t invest in this-why not?

 

We on a daily level are finding alternative ways far more  holistic methods of generating energy.

We even have free energy if the JPMorgans of this world would release Nikola Tesla’s documents and inventive plans to generate free energy from the magnetic electric impulses earth naturally releases all around us.te

The controlling elite are hiding important knowledge from us and this is why corporate control needs to be decentralised and be in full transparency of the people.

We need only a small box to draw this magnetic frequency and it will supply us with energy to heat our homes and cook our meals and the Cabal, the energy giants know this and are hiding this knowledge as best they can.

Fracking is the extinction button waiting to be pressed by corrupt capitalist’s eager to extract even more of earth’s natural resources.

BkTtuVdCIAAB2o2

It doesn’t take a child of 5 years old to know if you keep extracting, if you keep taking eventually you will run out and leave death zones in the wake of this excessive exploitation.

We need to decentralise the power base, the power grid and allow the people not the corporate minds to decide how our planet should be managed if corporations just exploit for greed and profit and not for the self survival of our species.

dd395-meyer-site

If they refuse to acknowledge free energy, or a more greener, holistic mechanisms of extracting energy from earth, there is something wrong and we need to assert this in every breath we make.

The fossil fuel industry cannot be allowed to decimate our countryside and pollute our natural water tables that lie beneath the surface.

1157640_10152033400927345_782799646_n

 

This is our springs, our means to exist relies on water. Once polluted it is extremely difficult to un-pollute and will cause mass death of our wild life and our plants and also create massive water shortages for us.

California’s Fracking Boom Just Got Busted

‘Energy Information Administration officials told reporters on Wednesday that they are cutting their estimate of how much oil can be drawn out of California’s massive Monterey Shale formation by a whopping 96 percent.

The news deals a serious blow to the fracking industry and has environmentalists cheering as momentum builds behind a legislative effort to put a moratorium on fracking in California. The estimate will be released publically next month, according to reports.

In 2012, the federal officials estimated that 13.7 billion barrels of oil could be recovered from the Monterey Shale. The EIA now says that only 600 million barrels of oil can be recovered using existing technologies such as acid treatment and fracking, the controversial oil and gas technique that involves forcing millions of gallons of water laced with silica and chemicals deep underground to break up rock formations.’

Fracking planned for Tory heartlands as report reveals billions of barrels of shale oil in southern England

‘Vast areas of southern England will on Friday be identified by the Government as targets for fracking, with ministers also announcing that energy companies will be allowed to frack under homes without owners’ permission.

A British Geological Survey study of the South, spanning from Wiltshire to Kent and including the South Downs National Park, will be published, mapping out the likely location of billions of barrels of shale oil.

Ministers are also preparing to publish controversial plans to change the laws of trespass to give energy companies an automatic right to frack beneath homes and private land – even if owners object.’

Illegal dumping of fracking fluids in Texas highlights risk

‘Texas authorities are investigating the illegal dumping of toxic oil-and-gas-drilling waste fluids in Karnes County, Texas, ground zero for the hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, boom in the state’s Eagle Ford Shale region.

Fracking drilling fluid – often riddled with hazardous and often undisclosed chemicals, contaminants, oil, and metal shavings – was spilled over eight miles of a rural roadway in middle of the night last March, according to a Karnes County Sheriff’s Department report obtained by InsideClimate News.

The spill led to an investigation by the sheriff’s department, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and the state Railroad Commission, which regulates the oil and gas industry in Texas.’

Update about ‘Balcombe Drilling: Cease the oil exploration activities of Cuadrilla in Balcombe.’ on Change.org

The Fracks in local democracy.
(Concerning the WSCC planning meeting to decide on Cuadrilla’s planning application)

Despite a petition of nearly five and a half thousand signatures, despite over 850 objections – West Sussex County Council chose to ignore the material objection that Cuadrilla has no social licence to be in Balcombe. Well informed and well researched speeches were delivered by residents, which only served to highlight the obvious lack of reading and thought that the voting councillors (with the exception of one – thank you Sue Mullins) had put into this planning meeting. It is a sad day for democracy when the committee, like every other body involved in this process from the EA to the DECC, dismisses some of the most serious concerns as ‘not in their remit’. Then whose responsibility are these concerns? It shows a ridiculous lack of foresight, when an exploration company is allowed to have its process considered piecemeal in separate planning applications, without considering the end-game of oil production close to residents. Thus, each new application is in part validated by the fact that the previous one was approved. Very clever Lord Browne!

lordjohnbrowne-p

Cuadrilla director Lord Browne

Back to our WSCC committee of elected representatives – evidence of health risks from flaring? Not their concern. Cuadrilla’s own researchers admit fluid can migrate up to 2000ft along fault plains and intend to put fluid down an uncased lateral borehole in a highly faulted area, within 1600ft of the aquifer- apparently nobody’s concern. Cuadrilla failed to include certain gases in their models of flaring emissions; have lost air samples and failed to consider the contour of the land so that the flare will actually pump chemicals out at more or less the level of our village (Lower Stumble is lower than Balcombe remember) -apparently nobody’s concern. Then of course there are the regulatory bodies that are supposed to protect us, but instead make assumptions that Cuadrilla has effectively self-regulated, which we know from past history that they have not. The HSE for example, have admitted they made no onsite checks of the well, yet this is part of their own best practice to ensure well failure does not occur. The WSCC and EA have then based their own permits on the idea that the well is, in fact, sound. This cannot be guaranteed, and as we have seen in Singleton, well failure does happen. Again – apparently nobody’s concern. Climate change? Clearly nobody’s concern, and certainly not the government’s, who admit climate change is occurring in one breath whilst redirecting subsidies away from renewables and into onshore oil and gas with the other. At what cost do we want our energy? We can only hope now, that an educated public will use their votes wisely.
By a concerned Balcombe resident.

As a result of the decision taken in this meeting Frack Free Balcombe Resident’s association has now written to WSCC to inform them that they are prepared to take the case to a Judicial Review on the basis that the decisions of the committee were unlawful. They were not made with due diligence and attention to a number of very important issues. Among these being the issue of flaring, lack of well checks and WSCC ignoring public opinion.

Please make your vote count on Thursday this week at the European elections. As yet the Greens are the only party to have a fully anti-fracking stance, but please visit this website for information on how all MEPs have voted. These elections use proportional representation so your vote really does count.

Please continue to spread the word about this petition, we hope, if the judicial review is successful, that it will be of use again. Also West Sussex County Council get emailed every time someone signs up.

Please continue to lobby, all those on the planning committee below took the decision to allow this planning permission to go ahead. If you are a WSCC resident or particularly in one of their wards, then they made a decision on your behalf. Following this are other people you may wish to lobby…not least the final lists of government decision-makers.

How they would stage a bioterror event

‘There are future scenarios which, with enough exposure before they happen, can be stopped, or at least analyzed correctly when they occur.

A staged bioterror event is one of those.

The primary fact is: no matter what kind of germ you’re talking about or where it came from, releasing it intentionally does not guarantee predictable results.

For instance, people whose immune systems are at different levels of strength are going to react differently.’
