Bit frustrating that the anti fracking lot think that because iGas are not going be test drilling for coal bed methane (CBM) in Upton or Mickle Trafford that its some kind of victory and its due to their "Hard and focused Protesting work"
Over the last month or so, with almost continuous high winds and relatively mild weather, off-shore wind has generated a healthy 10-15% of UK electricity, BUT today when it's quite parky, at least in the south-east, less wind, we're down to a paltry 1%. So for green energy supplies, an inverse correlation between need and supply. Don't Greenpeace realise that?
I see Greenpeace have erected a mock fraccing rig at parliament square. I assume they followed due procedure before commencing construction, I.e. applying to the local authority for planning permission. They wouldn't have just erected it without local authority approval? That would be taking the local democratic process away from the people having to live near it. Have they considered what effect it may have on the local property prices. There must have been considerable noise polution during erection, not to mention the soot from the open flare at the top. Carcogenic soot? Of course in a real fraccing rig open flaring is not allowed in the UK for this reason. Does it continue to flare at night, contributing to light pollution ? Hypocrisy in action, together with practical misinformation for the general public to turn them against fraccing.
I hope they have informed those frack off people its not real, as the local residents wont be happy if they set up a protest site there.
