Government Gives Fracking Green Light




Today saw the government give the green light to Fracking in the UK following last year’s two earth tremors in Lancashire that were blamed on the initial gas extraction tests. The film Gasland documented how drinking water was contaminated and various damaging health effects, including cancer, were emerging across the US due to Fracking.

During protests in December a Fracking rig was raised outside parliament and chief Fracking advocator, Lord Browne, got an early morning wake up call.
