GASLAND and the Shale gas fracking disasters,

Shale gas: Energy solution or Fracking Hell? This prospect is being touted as the next big thing in energy solutions yet the danger to the local water supply is enormous and documented. Around the UK stations are set up to test sites most unknown. What does this mean to you? These wells are pumping toxins into the ground forming cracks that allow seepage into the water supply and in some cases sending gas through your water pipes as this excellent video shows. This is incredibly dangerous and I do recommend watching this video to give you an idea of what actually is the result. Look out for Gasland 2 another expose.

Here is a animation that describes the effects of Shale gas on a community . This process is extremely destructive and services only greed. If you are unfortunate enough to be close to such a facility you should seek compensation because your property will be worthless once it starts.

Unconventional gas exploration is threatening Britain and Ireland. Licenses and planning applications have already been granted by the Government with little or no community consultation. The scale of the industrialisation and impacts are never discussed.This film charts Doreen and John’s journey from the shock of the drill rigs arrival to the sickening realisation that their lives and the lives of their family and friends will be profoundly affected. They live in Lancashire within sight of a shale gas well that is scheduled for hydraulic fracturing.

Like Doreen and John, individuals and communities across the UK are realising that the only way to stop this industry is to inform and empower their community and stand together for a better future.

Saying “No” to unconventional gas opens up many alternatives. Saying “Yes” or doing nothing leaves us facing a future where we are still dependent on fossil fuels with polluted air and water, and thousands of leaking gas wells across the countryside.

Find out how this will affect you, your family and your community. Find out how you can take action to stop the industrialisation of the countryside, pollution of air and water and plan for a better future. You can make a difference. A strong well organised community is the best defence against this industry.

The chemicals used in fracking operations, from extraction to processing, distribution, transport and waste disposal, can pollute surrounding air and water. These harmful chemicals pose serious health risks to surrounding communities, and in particular to pregnant women and children. Just some of the harmful substances commonly used in fracking include methane, BTEX (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylenes), arsenic, radium, ozone, formaldehyde, radium, radon, nitrogen oxides, methylene chloride and silica sand. These substances are associated with low birth weight, birth defects, respiratory problems, cancer and fertility problems.Link : http://ecowatch.com/2013/report-fracking-health-risks-pregnant-women-children/
