Inform, engage, change, is my intent.
Although something like 84% of the county did not want fracking, the government, and more locally to me, North Yorkshire council pushed it ahead anyway. The dangers of fracking are immense, they cannot be overstated. Why would any sane person take a risk with our water and air, and Fracking is a huge irreversible risk. In a time when we must reduce our dangerous planet warming emissions fracking will release more methane into the environment, some unburnt 'fugitive' emissions plus huge amounts turned quickly into fossil CO2. It releases methane, radium and a host of toxic substances into our water systems. The aquifer locally already has higher than average methane levels, we don't want explosive poisonous water. When the frackers have gone, or gone bust, and the mess is left. We and our children will still be living with it 50 - 100 years from now, polluted water and destroyed eco systems, forever.
Fractured Country - An Unconventional Invasion.
is a new film from Lock the Gate Alliance (Australia) about the risks to communities from invasive gasfields. This is the full version of the documentary.

As my representative in Parliament, I would like you to vote against allowing fracking in Yorkshire or anywhere in the UK. I believe it is highly dangerous to our environment, and the health of residents anywhere near a well site. As you know it is not just one well planned, but hundreds. with all the concomitant infrastructure needed for the process. Massive heavy lorries on roads never meant for this traffic, the waste generated by the process, and the immense amounts of water that is contaminated and escapes back into our aquifers and ground water, or evaporates into the air. Each Frack uses the equivalent of all the domestic water used by a town the size of Fleetwood and 60% of that is irreversibly lost each time. Fracking has proved to be in Australia and America, an unmitigated disaster for the communities suffering in the gas fields.
Please do all you can to protect the future of our children and our environment, vote against fracking on any scale.
