Gas Fracking 

Have you ever heard of "fracking"?

Are you aware that fracking for natural gas is about to begin in the U.K? 

 Why are you not aware? 

What.....no one told you? 

Well I am telling you now, and you better listen because 

THIS WILL AFFECT US ALL.

Fracking/ Hydrolic Fracturing is a method of extracting natural gas from the earth by pumping 1.7 million gallons of water and  approximately 596 chemicals for each well, into the ground.  The pressure builds and cracks the rock beneath releasing the natural gas within.

In this age of concern regarding the use of fosil fuels, this may seem like a useful option for the future but the questions we need to ask is:

 "Is this a safe alternative?. 

Would our government allow such a method to be used if it wasn't safe?"

Fracking has been going on for years across the U.S.A.  The Marcellas Shale is a huge underground gas reserve which is being fracked at the present moment. They have extracted millions of gallons of natural gas but at what cost??

Thousands of people in the U.S.A. are now discovering that they own the land they live on but the land below their land doesn't belong to them and so large companies can access this area and frack for natural gas on what they thought was their property. 

These people were of course paid to allow access to this land. 

Almost without exception all these residents are now having serious problems.  Their drinking water is now so contaminated that it cannot be consumed.  It pops and bubbbles whn it comes from the tap and is usually a dirty brown colour.  When reported to the authories, they test the water and tell the people that the water IS safe to drink. 

The oil companies, such as Halliburton have been informing the people that there would be no health issues in connection with gas fracking, but numerous people have been falling ill,  farm animals have been dying and suffering hair loss, and the surrounding rivers, streams etc have all been contaminated by the chemicals used in the fracking, killing the fish and wildlife.

Would you consider your water safe to drink if you could set it alight when it came from your taps?  Does that fill you full of enthusiasm?

There are numerous videos on www.youtube.com but look especially for one named "Gaslands".......

 

 If we don't want this happening in the U.K. then we need to make our feelings known.

Write a letter to your local M.P.

(especially those resident in Sussex)

Demand they research the truth into Gas Fracking.
