Bad news out of the UK. Our neocon Government has given the green light for Fracking. I can't believe that this is the way forward. There is no energy as dirty as Shale Oil and the environmental consequences in a country with such a high population density could be terrible.
Instead of investing in renewable energy and reducing consumption, many are looking for a quick fix for energy dependence and unemployment. Cuadrilla - the company involved in setting up the drill sites in Fylde, Lancashire, has been spreading a lot of money around the local communities in order to improve its image. I hope that people think of the permanent environmental damage before they take Cuadrillas 30 pieces of silver.
Peaceful Direct Action now seems to be the last option.
