Ian Crane: The UK's Fracking Nightmare

Today Patrick Henningsen interviewed Ian Crane about the drive by vested interests to develop shale gas extraction using hydraulic fracturing in the UK. He speaks about the implications for the environment and the resistance which is building.

Thank you so much for this article.

Previousy I was solidly pro fracking, seeing it as a long term source of cheap energy, & being aware that cheap & abundant energy is the bedrock of our civilisation. Coal energy brought the Industrial Revolution on, & Oil energy was the next step in our industrial civilisation. I saw Shale energy as the next step in this progression.

Now I'm not sure.

I'm aware of the UN Agenda 21 depopulation project, (disguised behind the cloak of "Green Sustainable Development") & the vast resources being deployed via the so called "Green" movements such as Greenpeace & World Wildlife Fund, to paint energy use as evil because it produces CO2, which is laughably being blamed for Global Warming.

So,frankly, I'm perplexed. I know which side of the fence uk column stands. I've just taken out a full subscription & congratulate you on your sterling work thus far, & send my best wishes for your future.

I don't know which side of the fence Ian R Crane stands. Is he a very clever anti energy use 5th columnist? Is he on the side of extremely clever global warming proponents such as Jim Hansen, formerly of NASA GISS, or Michael Mann of UN IPCC? Both these men are capable of manufacturing & propagating fantastic lies in the furtherance of their global warming, anti industrial, depopulation agendas.

Or is his anti fracking agenda based in fact? I don't know. I urge uk column to find the facts, to quantify this man's claims. He claims two wells drilled, two seismic events caused. I own a property in Folkestone which was damaged by a minor earhquake several years back. There has never been any fracking done in the South East. The Earth's techtonic plates are constantly shifting, this planet is constantly changing. Later in this presentation he shifts to more emotive language, calling these seismic events Earthquakes. I have read these seismic events can be compared to the passing nearby of a laden heavy lorry. Let's have some numbers please. Where do these seismic events rank on the richter scale, & what is a true comparison? It is well worthwhile, I believe to double & triple check this man's claims about the fracking experience in Colorado & New Mexico.

As experienced investigative journalists, I am sure you appreciate what I'm saying.

On a different topic, I have noticed that your photo header "Common Purpose Exposed" has the Common in a very visible, high impact colour, while the purpose is in a much more muted mauve. I believe the headline would have greater impact if both words were the same colour.

All the best,

John Doran.
