Description

Wherever you are ... this vile and corrupt practice is coming to your doorstep soon ... educate yourselves and stand up to it while you still can. If you don’t, then the whole of the world will become a toxic cesspit. Our government don’t give a damn ... why? ... because they have shares in it and homes in Frack Free countries ... There is a mainstream media blackout of the truth.

People please make your stand quickly before your water is polluted, your children are born with birth defects, your animals and wildlife are wiped out. Fracking is being railroaded through in the UK having been banned in several other countries ... it WILL result in disasters including earthquakes.

There is a saying that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned ... mother earth is anything but happy right now!!!!!!!!!

This circle has been created to share information and raise public awareness.

    • Hi Michelle

      We only set the circle up yesterday and at the moment I'm trying to get as many knowledgeable people as possible to join and share. I myself only had my eyes forced wide open a couple of weeks ago and have been horrified by what I have learnt so far.

      I belong to a few Facebook groups now but we need to get the message to a wider audience. However, this is a great Facebook group to join ... https://www.facebook.com/groups/SAYNOTOFRACKINGONBARTONMOSS/629830693733113

  • FRACKING WELL BLOW OUT!!!!!

    February has not been a good month for fossil fuel accidents. On the 13th, a train carrying crude oil from Canada derailed in Pennsylvania, spilling an estimated 3,000 to 4,000 gallons of oil. On the same day, a natural gas pipeline exploded in Kentucky, setting fires and destroying homes.

    Two days earlier on the 11th, 100,000 gallons of coal slurry spilled into a waterway near Charleston, West Virginia — the latest woe for a state that has been dealing with an unprecedented chemical spill. On that same day, a Chevron natural gas well exploded in Greene County, Pennsylvania.

    The list goes on. On February 2nd, a stormwater pipe burst under an unlined coal ash pond at a retired coal plant in Eden, North Carolina, draining 82,000 tons of coal ash mixed with 27 million gallons of water into the Dan River — the 3rd largest coal ash spill in U.S. history. On the 5th, 12,000 gallons of crude oil leaked from a Canadian Pacific Railway train on Monday in Minnesota, dribbling oil along the tracks for 68 miles. And on the 1st, a train carrying fuel oil, fertilizer, methanol derailed in southeast Mississippi, forcing a local evacuation.

  • Gas Industry Report Calls Anti-Fracking Movement a “Highly Effective Campaign”
    A report intended to help the oil and gas industry squash the anti-fracking movement turns out to be full of useful information—and admits that much of what activists are saying is true.

    Communities working to stop a controversial gas drilling process are getting what sounds like encouragement from an unlikely source: a report prepared for the oil and gas industry on the risks posed by those communities themselves. Even more bizarre than a risk assessment about grassroots activists is one that basically admits the activists are right.

  • The Witch Hunt For Activists

    Cops need criminals. Otherwise, there’s no reason for police to exist. Likewise, counter-terrorism agencies need terrorists to justify the billions of taxpayer dollars the U.S. Government spends preventing their attacks.

    There’s just one problem. Terrorists are relatively rare.

    So, every now and then, undercover cops have got to go out and drum up some likely suspects to reassure the public that our money isn’t being wasted. The agents go to activist communities, sit around in anarchist cafes, hang out at punk rock concerts, and pop into open air, general assemblies. After getting the lay of the land, they start to advocate violence . . . just to see if there are any violence-prone potential terrorists in the crowd. The agents then arrest the individuals they have actively encouraged to consider violent means. Some would call this entrapment, but, apparently, the courts disagree.

  • The CEO of ExxonMobil – the top producer of natural gas in the US – has joined a lawsuit that challenges the construction of a water tower connected to hydraulic fracturing operations near his Texas home, given that it may reduce the property value.

    CEO Rex Tillerson and other plaintiffs claim the hydraulic fracturing – or fracking – project will cause unwanted noise and traffic associated with trucking water from the 160-foot tower to the drilling site, The Wall Street Journal reported.

    The tower will provide water “to oil and gas explorers for fracing [sic] shale formations leading to traffic with heavy trucks on FM 407, creating a noise nuisance and traffic hazards,” according to the lawsuit. The water tower is owned by Cross Timbers Water Supply Corporation.

    Tillerson’s lawyer claims the noise, traffic, and actual fracking does not bother the ExxonMobil CEO, stating that it is the possible depreciation of his $5 million property in Bartonville, Texas that he is worried about.

    Fracking is the controversial process of injecting water, sand, and various chemicals into layers of rock, in hopes of releasing oil and gas deep underground. Fracking in a single well can take millions of gallons of freshwater.

    Tillerson himself has excoriated fracking regulations amid the practice’s boom across the country.

    “This type of dysfunctional regulation is holding back the American economic recovery, growth, and global competitiveness,” he said in 2012, Reuters reported.

    In another 2012 interview - with the Council on Foreign Relations - Tillerson said that natural gas production today has been revamped with new technologies, “so the risks are very manageable.”

    Yet fracking’s popularity with energy behemoths like ExxonMobil is finding resistance across the US based on more than property values and noise complaints.

    Fracking is exhausting water supplies in areas of the country that are suffering from chronic shortages, including Texas.

    The practice has also been linked to an upsurge of earthquakes in many areas of the nation.

    A recent study showed that the fetus of pregnant woman living within a 10-mile range of a fracking well is in much greater danger of congenital heart defects (CHD) and neural tube defects (NTD).

    Another recent study found that chemicals used in fracking are suspected of being endocrine disruptors, which “could raise the risk of reproductive, metabolic, neurological and other diseases, especially in children who are exposed to” the materials.

    On Thursday, a letter signed by over 1,000 doctors and health professionals was sent by Environment America to President Barack Obama, highlighting many other damaging health and environmental effects associated with fracking.

    The group’s concerns about fracking included drinking water contamination, carcinogenic air pollution, acute and chronic health effects, and greenhouse gas emissions.

    “Given this toll of damage, the prudent and precautionary response would be to stop fracking,” the letter reads. “Instead, the oil and gas industry is seeking to expand fracking at a frenzied pace, even into areas that provide drinking water for millions of Americans.”

    Those living within a half-mile of a fracking site “had a higher excess lifetime risk of developing cancer than people living farther away,” the letter says.

    For its part, ExxonMobil told The Wall Street Journal that it “has no involvement” in Tillerson’s lawsuit.

    As ThinkProgress points out, there is reason to believe that Exxon’s oil and gas development projects have compromised human health and the environment, much less hurt property values.

    One recent example is the company’s spill of up to 7,000 barrels of tar sands oil in a neighborhood of Mayflower, Arkansas nearly one year ago. Locals are still suffering from dizziness, headaches, and nausea – prompting many to move away if their homes aren’t already severely damaged.

    “I have friends who still live here. They don’t have a place to go. They have small children...and they’re all sick,” one Mayflower resident told RT recently.

    ExxonMobil pays Tillerson $40.3 million a year.

  • Welcome to Barton Moss community protection camp
    For several months now a group of protectors have been camped on the side of a footpath known as
    Barton Moss Road (Lane) M30 7RL with the full support of the local residents. With the aim to
    raise awareness of the dangers to public and environmental health posed by 'Fracking'. This novel
    'Extreme Energy Extraction' process uses lots of water and toxic chemicals to shatter the rock under
    high pressure to release gas from the shale deposits far below the ground. However slowing iGas
    by walking on a public footpath in front of the trucks is only part of the fix to this problem

  • LC Thornton ... My friends in the USA have lost all value in their properties.. Can light tap water.. rash from showers. Streams have dead fish.. Can feel vibration of underground explosions. Air is unclean. Leaks appear everywhere. Huge trucks thunder down road leaving this mud tracks behind them.. Community is angry. Nobody can sell and ofcause earthquakes have gone up by some INCREDIBLY silly %... Tragic beyond belief. Have a friend stuck in her home feeling suicidal.
