    Fracking goes on trial at international tribunal
    An internationally-recognised tribunal will begin examining evidence today on whether fracking breaches human rights.

    The Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal, established after the Vietnam War Crime Tribunals, is holding hearings on the question throughout this week.

    For the first time, the tribunal hearings are entirely online.

    An international panel of 10 judges will examine scientific reports and expert testimony along with evidence from people who believe their human rights are threatened by fracking.

    The organisers said the investigation would focus mainly on the responsibilities of states to protect human rights.
    But they said fossil fuel corporations may be implicated in witness testimony.
    The sessions of the PPT on fracking begin at 5pm British Summer Time or 9am Pacific Time.
    Proceedings can be watched online within 30 minutes of the end of the sessions on the Spring Creek Project Facebook Page or You Tube channel.

    “We’d ban fracking if we had the power” – SNP
    The Scottish government would ban fracking if it had the legal power to do so, a senior member of the Scottish National Party has said.

    Kirsty Blackman, the party’s deputy leader in the Westminster Parliament, said the current moratorium on planning permission for fracking was the only course open local to the Scottish Government.

    Environmental groups have united in opposing a massive new terminal that would receive fracked gas from the US in a protected area on Ireland’s west coast.
    They fear the plan runs counter to Ireland’s newly agreed climate commitments and is contrary to the country’s decision to ban fracking.
    Brexit fears played a key role in the reactivation of plans to develop a massive liquid natural gas (LNG) deepwater terminal in the Shannon estuary. Irish government ministers were alarmed that in a post-Brexit situation, LNG being piped into Ireland from the UK via interconnectors could be subject to tariffs.

    Celtique pulls out of more East Mids licences.
    Celtique Energie’s withdrawal from oil and gas licences has continued with the announcement today that it has sold more interests in the East Midlands.

    The sale of Celtique’s share in Petroleum Exploration and Development Licences 181 and 201 leaves the company with interests in just two remaining UK areas.

    According to today’s announcement, Celtique sold its 32.50% share in PEDL201, north of Loughborough on the Leicestershire-Nottinghamshire border, and the 25% interest in PEDL181 in north east Lincolnshire.

    A convoy of equipment needed to begin drilling at the IGas site at Tinker Lane in north Nottinghamshire arrived yesterday.

    A convoy of eleven heavy goods vehicles arrived at about 10.45am yesterday. Police had been at the site from about 6.30am.

    The equipment included the conductor rig to set the conductor pipe – the first layer of steel casing.

    Bad news for the government: the fracking industry is being investigated for human rights violations.
    An international spotlight on fracking
    As DrillOrDrop reported, the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal is an international body that was founded in the wake of the Vietnam war.
    It states that it investigates cases where “evidence suggests abridgement of basic rights of ordinary people”.
    The tribunal claims to act “independently of states, politics and vested interests” and follows international law.
    This will be the first tribunal that assesses fracking from a human rights perspective and the first to look at climate change through a human rights lens.

    Still haunting me those words i heard once being murmured by the Shale Gas expert.
    "Its All About The Oil" he repeated it three times quietly while under a little pressure.
    And i am still trying to get to grips with this Oil Price minefield.
    One thing though as oil prices rise the US Shale Drillers appear like moles drilling here there and everywhere.
    Drops below a certain point and they vanish,go bust even probably leaving a mess.
    Descend like locusts to feast on the Earth.Or should i say what is beneath.

    You sometimes are just not knowledgable enough to understand.This is one of those moments.I will get to grips with it one day.
    I have dark thoughts about the powerful ones making sure the price of oil rises by any means possible.Then discount thoughts like that,surely not.

    Also that countries are short of cash,or should i say desperate as the Debt Clock seems to show.And will do anything to bring the cash in.
    https://www.nationaldebtclocks.org/

    After watching the Subprime Chaos that swept the world the dark thoughts say they messed up the worlds economies,nothing left now but to pillage the Earth with the risks to the environment,people,water, aquifers,water table the air that we breathe.
    And risk the rise,only 2 degrees,Climate Change,for money.

    What happens if Earth gets 2°C warmer?
    And why are we trying to avoid it?
    https://www.popsci.com/what-happens-...degrees-warmer

    And renewables,well that can be slowed down,go on the back burner,the only winners there would be the citizens of the world.
    I have seen two story flat pack houses where you would never pay another heating bill again built for a price you would not believe.
    But the power companies,shareholders would lose the only gainers would be the citizens.
    I only pick a few pieces of Driftwood off the Shoreline,grow a few plants this is beyond my knowledge base these dark thoughts are not good.
    So will move on rapidly.But best to put thoughts down the pressure you feel has then gone whether right or wrong.
    I am not bothered what people say got a much thicker skin these days,too much sun,climate changes fault probably.
    So have your say if you feel so inclined.

    Here's what drives the price of oil
    If you're not an oil analyst, the oil market may seem like a lot to keep up with.
    Most investors follow either West Texas Intermediate or Brent crude prices.
    Oil prices are influenced by three major factors: supply, demand and geopolitics.

    1. Supply
    Supply and demand has to do with how much oil is available.

    Supply has historically been determined by countries that are part of OPEC.
    But now, the United States is playing a bigger role in supply thanks to booming production from American shale fields.
    So if major oil-producing countries are pumping out a lot of crude, the supply will be high.

    2. Demand
    Demand on the other hand is determined by how much need there is for oil at a given time. That need is often for things like heat, electricity and transportation.
    The more economic growth a region sees, the more demand there will be for oil.

    "Economies around the world have picked up since the financial crisis, and growth has gotten stronger so people have been using more energy," Essner said.

    3. Geopolitics
    Since supply is determined by the big oil-producing countries, tension with one of those nations can cause major problems.
    So if there's war or conflict in an oil-producing region, crude inventories could seem threatened, and that could ultimately alter the price of oil.

    Gone but will return one day soon.
    Frack Off Frackers-Frack On Protectors someone has to tell it how it is.To much at risk not to.

    Well we sure need to keep a eye on what flows out of these Fracking Wells,water is such a precious resource.
    As the scientists say.
    "Fracking is the worst thing I've ever seen," says Dr. Sandra Steingraber.
    A biologist who has worked as a public health advocate on issues like breast cancer and toxic incinerators.
    "Those of us in the public health sector started to realize years ago that there were potential risks,
    then the industry rolled out faster than we could do our science."
    And we are about to let the Frackers roll out around England where we live so close together.
    The industry rolls out faster than the science to check out the possibilities of harm.Makes you think.
    Nobody realised till recently what was happening to water in parts of America.From things used decades ago till recently,nobody knew it seems of the dangers.
    Till now.

    Aides to President Trump’s embattled EPA administrator attempted to stop publication of a study into water contamination near military bases nationwide, including former naval bases in Bucks and Montgomery Counties, according to a published report.

    The study would show that the chemicals — known as PFOA and PFOS — are dangerous to humans in much smaller quantities than the Environmental Protection Agency has previously said, Politico reported this week.

    Government announces plans to speed up fracking decisions in England + detailed reaction.
    Drill or Drop article.
    Ministers are considering taking fracking decisions in England out of local control and allowing shale gas exploration wells to be drilled without the need for planning applications.

    A written ministerial statement issued this morning said the government would consult during the summer on whether non-fracking shale gas exploration should be treated as permitted development.
    This would mean operators would avoid the need to go through the normal local planning system.

    The statement, issued by the Energy and Local Government Secretaries, also said there would be a consultation on treating fracking applications as National Significant Infrastructure Projects. This would mean planning applications for fracking schemes would be decided by a government-appointed inspector, rather than local planning authorities.
    https://drillordrop.com/2018/05/17/g...iled-reaction/

    CPRE call fracking announcement ‘outright assault on local communities
    CPRE have condemned today’s joint announcement from the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government which proposes to streamline the process for fracking applications.

    These plans pose huge environmental risks to our landscapes and threaten the tranquillity of the countryside.
    On top of this, the ministerial statement also sets out plans for fracking to be considered as ‘permitted development’ and as Nationally Significant Infrastructure, which would diminish the abilities of communities to influence local proposals.

    Challenge Conservatives on energy priorities and cuts to renewables
    Onshore wind has higher public approval than nuclear and fracking, so why are Tories expanding unpopular industries with higher carbon footprints?
    The Tory manifesto mentioned cuts only to onshore wind, but all renewables have suffered since May 2015.
    At least six incentives to highly popular solar photovoltaic (PV) power have been cut. According to the Solar Trade Association, 32% of jobs were lost by last summer.

    In November 2015, government scenarios for future electricity generation all showed renewable power, which had expanded 10 times in the nine years to 2015, hardly expanding at all over the next two decades. Most of the small renewable expansion permitted in the 2020s is expected to be offshore wind.
    Apparently the government intends there to be no new PV or onshore wind after 2020.
    Why cull such popular and successful industries?
    All the government scenarios assume the wholesale electricity price will increase in the 2020s.
    This is because they hope the electricity price will rise close to the ridiculously high value guaranteed for nuclear power.
    If it falls, the nuclear levy on household electricity bills will rise dramatically.

    The UK has more than 32 gigawatts of renewable power, 10 times the power the Hinkley Point C nuclear plant may achieve in 2030.
    Hinkley’s power is not only almost irrelevant; its inflexible nature will make it redundant.

    Third Energy’s North Yorkshire fracking planning application cost £½m+ – MPs told-Fracking Week in Parliament 2

    Things are building like a Volcano about to erupt.
    Who will win,will the Frackers be allowed to run free through England.
    If they do not expand quickly with hundreds if not thousands of wells it will be to late.Local Planners what do they matter Democratic local decisions can be over ridden by the people elected to represent the people.
    The Well will run dry,investors will flee they will trudge off wearily into the mists of time to be forgotten.
    It seems that the pressure on local councils is huge.Affordability issues,so much expense.
    A planners nightmare.
    The Frackers must know this pressure and will try to use it to their advantage.
    Interesting times.And like a spider spinning its web many strands of the web lead to investors,influential people with powerful friends.Some from these lands some from far flung places all drooling at the prospect of what lies beneath England.
    All sat round a table ready to devour those who dare to object. By any means possible.
    One hell of a challenge for sure.Which many are rising up to face,i have never known times like this before.
    The battle lines are drawn,the fields of England are the place where the final showdown could be decided.
    By communities,we will see.
    Gone.
    Well perhaps i had better go,imagination is seeing many things that could happen.

    How Trump’s EPA Is Moving to Undo Fracking Wastewater Protections
    Back in 2008, residents of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and surrounding areas received a notice in the mail advising them to drink bottled water instead of tap water—a move that U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) internal memos at the time described as
    "one of the largest failures in U.S. history to supply clean drinking water to the public."

    NASA SOLVES CLIMATE MYSTERY, CONFIRMS METHANE SPIKE TIED TO OIL & GAS
    A team led by scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory confirmed that the oil and gas industry is responsible for the largest share of the world’s rising methane emissions—which are a major factor in climate change—and in the process the researchers resolved one of the mysteries that has plagued climate scientists over the past several years.
    “The sharp increase in methane emissions correlates closely with the U.S. fracking boom,” said Jim Warren, executive director of the climate watchdog group NC WARN.
    “Leaking and venting of unburned gas—which is mostly methane—makes natural gas even worse for the climate than coal.”
    https://jpratt27.wordpress.com/2018/...ed-to-oil-gas/

    Last thing.
    Imagine what it is like to see things from a Climate Change view,a Environmental View.
    Or a fierce worry to protect your family,friends and communities from what you see as danger.Which is possibly soon to be unleashed across England if the Government gets their way.
    If someone says what are you on about Fracking is safe,prove it.
    The evidence throughout these pages now must say on the weight of evidence,reports from throughout the world it is not.
    From Tremors,Earthquakes,Pollu tion,Sickness worries,Water worries,Stress to communities huge vehicles travelling through the countryside on rural roads.
    The chemicals being transported and the treatment of waste.Just a few of peoples worries.There are many more.

    They brag we have spent 7 million in the local community.
    It has cost 9 million to police one site.

    What is really behing this that one political party insists it must happen.
    It it money for influence,the donations that we have seen affect political judgement before.
    It it the web that leads to politicians and their powerful friends.
    Are we trying to copy that vast area on the other side of the Atlantic America.
    On this small area of land where we live so close together.
    Is the country that broke they will gamble on something that looks sure to fail.
    Research how much money has been made from Fracking so far.
    And how many wells will be required throughout England.
    Do not ask me whats going down but it makes you wonder.

    Anyway i came to put this link on from a Protector who wrote down from the heart recently a few words.
    After years watching and standing there at the Roadside saying no.
    Facing all sorts of hurdles.

    Starts like this and continues on the link.
    Recently after a nun, vicar and monk spoke during faith week… I asked some police officers, just who were the ‘good guys’? And they said themselves.
    So I asked who are the ‘bad guys’ they were here policing… was it the nun, the vicar or the monk?
    They laughed but it isn’t really funny is it… there must be ‘bad guys’ if policing levels are what they are and the only alternative on this road is Cuadrilla.
    The obvious fails to be seen by those who don’t look.

    UnitedResistance Weekly Review. Week 7

    A mixed week really, one which saw Smart Card assaulted and arrested and it saw strange behaviour on what can only be described as the Inspector out on a limb

    Visitors from Yorkshire rounded off the week
    https://www.facebook.com/SmartCard00...type=2&theater

    Always like to have a look around,read what has happened elsewhere.
    Cells and Jails may need building for some people if what we read is fact.
    Accountability will be sought.
    You often get satisfaction when you see what is happening and when it does you say to your mates with a smug feeling of satisfaction i told you so.
    Imagine if half of what i have put on these pages comes true.
    No feeling of satisfaction because it is not the economy,money it is our Environment.

    Anyway do not have nightmares, sleep well a little night time reading.

    America.
    The combination of two technologies – hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling – has enabled the oil and gas industry to engage in an effort to unlock oil and gas in underground rock formations across the United States. “Fracking,” however, has also led to tremendous environmental harm and put the health and safety of communities across the country at risk.

    Since 2005, according to industry and state data, at least 137,000 fracking wells have been drilled or permitted in more than 20 states, but the scale of fracking’s impact on our environment can be difficult to grasp.
    This report quantifies some of the key environmental and public health-related impacts triggered by fracking during the technology’s decade-long spread across the country.
    To protect the public and our environment, states should take action to ban fracking, or, failing that, to ensure that oil and gas companies are held to the highest level of environmental performance, transparency and accountability.

    Default Re: Fracking gets go-ahead in UK for first time since 2011 as North Yorkshire council approves plans

    Student climate campaigners have just taken over a key building at a prestigious university
    Speaking to The Canary, a spokesperson for the group said:

    There can be no business as usual while Cambridge continues to profit from climate catastrophe.
    We have taken every democratic route possible towards divestment, demonstrating the depth of popular support on this issue, and yet University Council is set to reject divestment once again. This is a climate emergency, and it is time for Cambridge to divest and turn its back on the industry responsible.
    We will shut down the University’s administrative heart until University management commit to full divestment.
