Anarchists, Trots and Anti-Zionist Loonies Protest Fracking

The people of Blackpool have today been besieged by anti-fracking wackos in need of a wash. No Dash for Gas like to present themselves as local, normal “mothers and grandmothers…wearing aprons,” who just want to make a polite point about shale gas. They’re spinning harder than a drill working its way through the Lancashire landscape. 

The programme for today’s ‘Reclaim the Power’ protest camp lists a series of workshops including “An introduction to anarchism and anarchist organising”, legal training from the anarchist Green and Black Cross movement, and a PCS union talk on “reclaiming unions”. Attendees can also listen to the advice of delegates from Occupy London, the Polish anarcho-syndicalist Workers’ Initiative and the Squash campaign to decriminalise squatting.

Among the camp’s supporters are Ewa Jasiewicz, a Polish Palestine solidarity activist who wrote on the Reclaim the Power Facebook page: “please come share a bevvy with me and talk more BDS… Ahlan wa sahlan, see you tonight!!” Past attendees include David Icke wannabe Ian Crane, who reckons: “The socio-psychopathic ZIONIST Government of Israel is deliberately fuelling the wave of global anti-jewish sentiment, in a bit to FORCE the diaspora out of their host countries and move to IsraHELL.” And Tom Palmer, who at a protest last week requested: “need some people to bring speed (or some other uppers) though and paraffin for fire poi and a guita (sic)”Just your usual mothers and grandmothers wearing aprons, then…

        You won’t be saying that when the posh estate your living on has just been flattened by uncaptured Methane Gas explosion due to fracking.

        Forget the earthquakes – that’s a minor matter.

          Should you be commenting on a blog at all?

          Are you suggesting that fracking sites will be near ‘posh’ estates? Surely the tory toffs will ensure only the plebs are at risk?

          Methane in water is not an issue – it can and is being druunk with no health effects.

          Could you cite studies which indicate what the risk lis of a methane explosion is?

          The US has been fracking since the 1940s – how many incidents of explosions have their been?

          When did anarchy take on the mantle of public health protection?

            You are mssing the point.
            Human population growth will create energy demand that will outstrip all fossile based sources by the end of this century. Even assuming the medium growth figures of population growth by 2070 you’ll have 10 billion. Most growth will be in Afica and Asia. What you’ve seen in the Middle East and the Gulf is a taste of what is to come. And once they have WMDs think that you’ll keep them out? Frack away the usual elite will just make cash as always. In the end the problem will solve itself but don’t expect to like it.

    The following is what’s happened since fracking began.

    “Oklahoma, United States has had: (Magnitude 1.5 or greater)

    6 earthquakes today
    26 earthquakes in the past 7 days
    101 earthquakes in the past month

      Is that you Ewa? says:

      Let me guess, you failed GSCE geography?

      Low magnitude earthquakes are normal, you get them all the time. There are over a million of them a year up to Richter Scale 3, double your 1.5 but of course it’s a log scale so even more. Almost all are natural as the earth’s crust moves. A few can be man-made, like when a mineshaft is drilled, an explosive charge is let off in a quarry or rocks are fractured to release the gas. No biggie.

        Paniagua says:

        Let me guess, you failed maths, right? Oklahoma has had a 5000% increase in earthquakes. Blackpool has had two earthquakes. And:

        “When Cuadrilla fracked near Blackpool it found traces of naturally occuring uranium and thorium and radium that were 90 times higher than naturally occurs in drinking water. Previously, regulations classed the waste water as industrial effluent”

        2,000,000 gallons of radioactive waste were sent to the local water treatment works , then discharged “into the Manchester Ship Canal after being processed at the Davyhulme treatment works at Trafford”

        Not many people know this but, in 1884, The Great English Earthquake destroyed 1,200 buildings and damaged thousands more over a radius of 55,000 miles. 3 to 5 people were killed by the earthquake and whole communities were made homeless.

        Seismologists state that low magnitude tremors can be signals of severe earthquakes on the way. The Great English Earthquake is estimated to have been a 7 on the Richter scale:

        “Causes damage to most buildings, some to partially or completely collapse or receive severe damage. Well-designed structures are likely to receive damage. Felt across great distances with major damage mostly limited to 250 km from epicenter. Death toll ranges from none to 250,000″

    BBC Interviewer: “It was the fracking that caused these mini earth tremors, these earthquakes [at Blackpool] earlier in the year?”

    Mark Miller: “Yes. If I can back up just a second, the purpose of the study was to look at any connections or any relationship between the fracking operations and the seismic events that happened on April 1 and May 27… there were a number of conclusions.

    The first is that there was a connection, that there was a triggering event from what we were doing up there injecting into the over bore.

    Our conclusions…we understand the mechanism and because we understand it we’re able to go ahead a-a-and put these mitigation procedures in place, one of which is changing the job size a-and the other is we’re implementing a ……. detection system which is really a way to make these very small micro-seismic events, which would occur before the point where it would escalate to the point where anybody would feel it.

        Oklahoma’s 900 plus earthquakes in the last year were from 1 to 5.6 on the Richter scale. Most of them could be felt alright. Seismologists are concerned that these may be signals of more severe earthquakes to come.

        The Great English earthquake of 1884 was preceded by a series of low magnitude tremors. It is estimated to have been 7 on the Richter scale and it destroyed 1,200 buildings and damaged thousands more. 3 to 5 people were killed, though some researchers believe there were more deaths but these were covered up.

    It may come as something of a surprise to the anti-fracking nut-jobs that a solid majority of Britons, 57%, FAVOUR fracking versus only 16% who oppose it and 27% who are undecided. Linked to this finding is, undoubtedly, the further finding that 67% think Britain should be self-reliant in energy. Just maybe, fracking will help to achieve this. Rational people, the Brits! Though not the nut-jobs, obviously.
