Fracking Hell!

I’ve got a prediction that eventually with fracking and now methane extraction Britain will eventually disappear into a huge sink hole, that’s if we don’t all get killed by the resultant poisoning of our water supply first.

frackingWe already have coming to an area near you Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) which is the propagation of fractures in a rock layer, by a pressurized fluid. Water in most case although where these frackers are going to get that amount of water from when usually there are water restrictions in a lot of areas beats me.

Fracking, is a technique used to release petroleum, natural gas (including shale gas, tight gas, and coal seam gas), or other substances for extraction. In the US fracking is blamed for earthquakes and pollution of the water supply. Britain has already had an earthquake in Lancashire which was blamed on fracking.

The fracking companies point to the economic benefits from vast amounts of formerly inaccessible hydrocarbons the process can extract. That is economic benefits for the companies who then charge high prices for this source of energy rather than economic benefits for those being fracked.
Opponents point to potential environmental impacts, including contamination of ground water, risks to air quality, the migration of gases and hydraulic fracturing chemicals to the surface, surface contamination from spills and flowback and the health effects of these.

I would have thought it would be more beneficial and cheaper for everyone, other than energy companies of course, if the government stuck a solar panel on every south facing roof using all the money wasted on monstrous inefficient wind turbines to fund them.

Dart Energy’s plans have alarmed local sweaty socks (Jocks), who fear the new extraction technique, could cause pollution and harm their health in the area.

Safety fears have been raised by rail engineers who have warned explosions could be caused by uncontrolled emissions of the flammable gas at two sites beside the Larbert to Stirling line, pictured.
Network Rail has lodged a formal objection with Falkirk Council planners raising its concerns about the Dart Energy project, which is planned for Letham Moss, near Airth, Stirlingshire.
By the way in Australia 44% of well-heads in Queensland were leaking methane which has 70 times the greenhouse effect that carbon dioxide has.

Percy’s memo – look on Ebay for gas masks.

Is X Factor Tulisa’s wardrobe assistant/dresser working their notice?

Week in week out Nickersan Shirtslinger turns up looking like a million dollars but Tulisa turns up looking as though someone has convinced her the dress code is fancy dress. Last night she went all Christmassy and appeared seemingly dressed as a turkey.

Close but no wedding ring

eupakistanA man from India was arrested just moments before he was due to take part in a suspected sham wedding at Weybridge register office.
Acting on a tip off that the relationship may not be genuine, Border Agency officers turned up at the office on Oatlands just before 11:00 on Tuesday 4th December.
Just before the ceremony began UK Border Agency officers intervened and the 31-year-old man was arrested for entering the UK illegally. He had been due to marry a 28-year-old Hungarian woman.
The bride was questioned by officers and released, while the Indian man has been detained pending his removal from the UK.
