The risk of contaminating water supplies just makes the whole concept of fracking seem absolutely fucking mental to me.

With the amount of energy produced by the Gulf Stream the UK should be investing in clean technology.

Script

That's the point really. We don't need fracking - we're being force-fed it on the back of a huge propaganda campaign because the Tories love Big Energy and are ideologically-aligned with corporate entities like Cuadrilla who are happy to rape the planet for short-term financial gain.

I wrote a piece about the state of fracking in the US - certainly over there the companies involved actively withhold as much information as possible about the chemicals they use, so that scientists monitoring changes in the water table cannot say with certainty where the chemicals are coming from. Horrific animal deformities are commonplace. I have no reason to think it will be any different in the UK - the government may have the power to demand full disclosure, but it won't, because it doesn't want to know. It'll do what it always does and lie and dissemble its way through the various resultant eco/PR disasters until people get bored of protesting and grudgingly integrate fracking into the growing collective framework of "Depressing Things We Have To Tolerate As Long As Money Is King".

More generally, let's remember that the people who run Big Energy are not in it as magnanimous, conscientious humanitarians who spent their formative years desperately concerned about the prevention of blackouts and resolved to go into the energy business lest the species die out through not being able to keep the lights on; if the oil/gas money suddenly dried up they'd all be investment bankers.

 Script

If you believe in global warming/climate change, and understand that 95% of the world's scientists agree that going above 2degreesC warming will be really very catastrophic, then fracking is at best useless, and at worst contributing to a major fucking disaster. And that's without taking into consideration the earthquakes and water contamination.

Total existing oil, gas & coal reserves, that have already been accessed or extracted, (that's the carbon fuels we already have access to for burning, without looking for any more by fracking or other exploratory drilling) already far exceed the amount that we are able to burn before taking us over that 2degreesC temperature rise limit.

[In order to remain with 2degreesC global warming...]"The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's carbon-budget model, widely considered the most reliable, puts the budget for 2012-2100 at between 886 and 1119 gigatons of CO2. Total known fossil fuel reserves in the world, if burned, would add 2860 gigatons of CO2 to the atmosphere. Thus, simple math indicates that almost two-thirds of all known fossil fuel reserves must remain unburned if global temperatures are to remain habitable"

Therefore all new fossil fuel exploration and extraction projects are entirely pointless.

We have built this room as a cost effective alternative for bands and musicians looking to rehearse regularly each week.  Got Monday evenings and some weekend times free.  If you're interested the room comes with:

- 2 x PAs
- 1 x large sub
- 2 x mapex Pro-m drum kits with cymbals
- Bass Amp
- Guitar Amp
- mic stands
- parking

We've also built large storage lockers for each band to use which they can access 24/7.  Cost works out as c.£4 an hour with all this included.  A cheap alternative to some of the extortionate rooms out there.

Give me a call on 07912222231 if you would like more info

Local recording Peeps I rate are James King & Joe Garcia. Both have access to nice studios and both play in the band ANTA. I would definitely recommend speaking to those guys.

I use MediaMonkey but VLC for videos.

BeeMusic and Foobar2000 are pretty strong music players. I'm also not a Winamp fan.

A new study suggests that the contamination of drinking water by shale gas is due to faulty wells and not hydraulic fracturing.

Researchers in the US analysed the gas content in 130 water wells in Pennsylvania and Texas.

They were able to trace the methane found in the water to problems with the casing or lining of wells drilled to extract the gas.



The micro quakes cause by fracking mean that the wells are almost guarenteed to fail...
