1 post / 0 new

A panel of independent experts have reported to DECC on the causation of the seismic events experienced in the Blackpool area last year during hydraulic fracturing operations at Preese Hall, and have made recommendations to mitigate the risks of similar events in future fracturing operations

Comments are invited, from members of the public, specialists or organisations, on the issues and recommendations in this report. Responses will normally be made public. Responses for which confidentiality is requested should make clear to which parts of the response this request applies. Where confidentiality is not requested, responses may be made available to any enquirer, including enquirers outside the UK, or published by any means, including on the internet. Responses should be sent, by 25 May 2012 to: led.comment@decc.gsi.gov.uk.

Ministers have made clear that no decision on whether or not hydraulic fracture operations for shale gas may be resumed will be made until all comments received have been duly considered.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that if you continue to break up the solid rock foundation below the earths crust that is holding up that crust, you will have earthquakes!

What happens when the news media stops covering news objectively - and instead becomes a source of very specific opinions that serve a very narrow agenda?

For example - in the case of the democratic primary - consider the news coverage of the mere possibility of Vice President Joe Biden challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party's nomination for president.
