    Science update on climate change: from bad to worse
    Scientists monitoring the Earth's climate and environment have delivered a cascade of grim news this year, adding a sense of urgency to UN talks on how best to draw down the greenhouse gases that drive global warming.

    Here is a summary of recent findings:

    1.1 degrees

    Earth's average surface temperature last year was a record 1.1 degree Celsius (1.98 Fahrenheit) above the preindustrial era.

    The planet's rising fever is caused by the accumulation of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, especially carbon dioxide (CO2) cast off when fossil fuels are burned to produce energy

    Fracking Companies Feature on New “Climate Disinformation Database”
    Two shale gas companies and their executives are on a database launched today which aims to reveal lobbying in favour of fossil fuels and against climate change action.

    The database, from the website DeSmog UK, is designed to be a live log of activities and actions by key players who are said to be “pushing climate science denial and disinformation”.

    The almost 70 entries include Cuadrilla and INEOS, companies behind shale gas exploration plans in northern England and the East Midlands, along with their executives,Francis Egan and Jim Ratcliffe.
    DeSmog said today:
    “Despite the UK posturing as a climate change leader on the global stage, there remain many issues on which it needs to move further, faster, if the government is to meet its own high standards.

    “Behind each climate policy failure is a network of politicians, corporate lobbyists and shadowy think tanks pushing to preserve the fossil-fuelled status quo.”

    Cuadrilla seeks another change in environmental rules at fracking site.
    The shale gas company, Cuadrilla, has applied to dispose of water which collects on its fracking site near Blackpool into a brook instead of removing it by tanker.

    The proposal, made in a 23-document application to the Environment Agency published yesterday, is another variation of the company’s permit for the Preston New Road site.
    “This is an exact example of how opening the door to Cuadrilla enables a foot in the door and tiny tweaks and variations overtime considerably change the application that was first permitted.”
    https://drillordrop.com/2017/12/14/c...fracking-site/

    Rule change approved for Cuadrilla’s shale gas site despite fears of intensified fracking.
    Cuadrilla has been allowed to change controls on fracking and flaring at its shale gas site near Blackpool.

    The Environment Agency announced yesterday that it had approved variations to the environmental permit on the volume of fracking fluid and the duration of flaring.

    Friends of the Earth has opposed the changes for the Preston New Road site, saying they could lead to more intensive fracking and more lorry loads of potentially radioactive waste on Lancashire roads.

    What’s happening this week? 18-24 December 2017-Articles Care Of Drill Or Drop.
    In this final listing before Christmas 2017:

    Visit of Gyuto monks to Kirby Misperton
    Solstice celebrations;
    Rallies;
    Carolling;
    Ongoing Barclays protest.

    Fracking waste treatment and disposal could cost £1m a well – new research.
    Researchers at Edinburgh University have warned that cost of waste treatment and a shortage of specialist facilities could limit the development of fracking in the UK.

    A team from the university’s School of Geosciences estimated that treating the salinity and other chemicals in fracking wastewater at existing facilities
    could cost between £100,000 and £1 million per well under current treatment regulations.
    This represented between 2% and 26% of the expected total revenue from each well, they said.

    Operators could face additional costs of about £163,000 per well to dispose of concentrated sludge containing naturally occurring radioactive material, known as NORM.

    Water management at Cuadrilla’s Lancs fracking site a “matter of priority” – Minister
    Fracking Week in Parliament
    Cuadrilla has been asked to address surface water management on its site at Preston New Road, as a priority,the Environment Minister wrote last week.

    Now what are people talking about on the Frontlines of Fracking in the UK.
    Gayer Frackman gives views in a different way to what many people read.
    And has spent many hours by himself investigating at all times of the day and night over many years.
    I asked him once why by yourself so many times,time he replied i crack on and get it done.
    Mentions the Environment Agency and perhaps wonders like many just how strong is the EA.
    Who funds the EA.
    You would think they would have representatives at Fracking Sites every day watching as there seems so much risk involved.And do daily reports.
    And to reassure people locally.About water,flooding just what are the risks as Fracking comes closer.
    Flaring,chemicals and the rest.Discoloration of local watercourses etc,just what is going on many must be wondering.
    I mean let us not forget this Fracking Company caused Earthquakes but have been allowed to carry on.

    Touch of news from elsewhere.Lets keep the plastic industry thriving.Choking the seas,polluting.
    Meet the European Petrochemical Giant Trying to Profit from the Fracking of Pennsylvania
    The controversial Mariner East 2 pipeline would carry gas liquids for plastics production overseas.
    It seems that every week brings more bad news about the construction of Sunoco’s Mariner East 2 pipeline. While
    Pennsylvania communities, water protectors and landowners fight to stop the project, a larger question remains: What is this massive, dangerous pipeline actually for? The one word answer might surprise you: plastics.
    The Mariner East 2 won’t carry “natural gas” for heating your house or operating a stove. It will transport highly volatile liquids that will mostly be shipped overseas to be turned into plastics by a giant chemical corporation with a terrible environmental record.

    Fracking Linked to Negative Health Effects in Infants, Study Says
    http://time.com/5062700/fracking-hea...alflow_twitter

    It’s hard to be optimistic about climate action, not in a week when federal scientists reported that “the Arctic shows no sign of returning” to the “reliably frozen region of recent past decades.” Not in a month when California’s wildfires show every sign of burning straight through Christmas. And not in a moment when the federal government keeps scrubbing basic climate information from its websites.

    But something big is starting to shift. After years of effort from activists, there are signs that the world’s financial community is finally rousing itself in the fight against global warming. A foretaste came last month when Norway’s sovereign wealth fund — the world’s biggest — said that it is considering divestment from holdings in fossil fuel companies.

    Do you live near a Fracking Site or potential Fracking Site.
    Always wondered if something went terribly wrong what is the evacuation plan in these areas,towns,villages,haml ets,schools,close to Fracking Sites.
    Do you know.

    Early this morning Cuadrilla Fracking Site.
    Convoy sails in with heavy police escort.
    If you are for Fracking enjoy,but for anyone else who is against if you have ever been around when a convoy arrives you know how many feel watching this.
    Just looking back remembering the atmosphere before a convoy arrives.
    Remembering meeting many protectors on and off throughout the year,some talked to some i just knew from videos.
    The atmosphere changes.It seems like things go a little quiet even nature, people just do not know what may happen shortly.
    You look around at peoples faces,perhaps not speaking but there is no need, you may want to run but you stay put,together.Proud of your position against the Frackers. History will show these Frackers for what they are and they will fade away like the Dinosaurs they are,hopefully.
    Then all hell breaks loose,the police arrive,the cars,the lights,the wagons the corporate enforcers running alongside like a presidential visit,no choice really perhaps,just following orders.Roads suddenly close lines of police face you.
    You film,try to walk the vehicles but soon pushed away.Some are unlucky and find themselves leaving a dent in a hedge as they find themselves heading headfirst through it.
    Some feel the force of a reinforced glove with 8 ounces of steel woven in,matrix police were rumoured to wear these. Others bruised and battered,it happens fast,very fast a blur.You see people you class as friends pushed and shoved everywhere.It does not matter who you are.
    Better calm down a touch,many are living in camps around the Fracking Sites even next to the road this Christmas
    in damp tents perhaps cold.If you get the chance support them if you can in words or visitations or a little food,wood, good cheer.
    Or maybe honk when you see them.

    Some feel that Lancashire has been invaded against Democratic decisions made.
    The spiders web of connections leading to London,the investments.Some will never forget what has happened and is happening.
    Losing all trust in politicians and their corporate chums.And will never trust them again.
    Massive changes are coming i am convinced this cannot carry on.It hopefully will start soon.
    Seeing some regional councillor when a decision went against one of these Frackers,looked like he had been shot and threw a right old wobbler.
    Just what is going on some may think.

    And if allowed to spread gives some sleepless nights as they look at the bigger picture.
    It starts with just one well.

    Planners recommend Cuadrilla’s oil testing plans for Balcombe despite 2,700+ objections.
    A report released this afternoon recommends approval of plans by Cuadrilla to test the flow of oil at its well in Balcombe, West Sussex.


    The county council’s planning committee is due to discuss the company’s application at a meeting on 9 January. Link to agenda and reports

    Council planners, in a report to the committee, said there had been 2,739 objections to the proposals, including from Balcombe,
    Ardingly and Worth Parish Councils, Friends of the Earth, Sussex Wildlife Trust, Frack Free Balcombe Residents’ Association and Campaign to Protect Rural England .

    The parish council submitted the result of a local ballot from 2013 in which a majority of participants wanted to object to applications like this in the village.

    Opponents of the scheme raised issues including Cuadrilla’s financial condition,
    its lack of community engagement and the absence of an Environmental Impact Assessment.

    INEOS injunction judge rules against appeal – campaigners say the fight goes on.

    Two campaigners have vowed to continue their fight against the injunction granted to
    INEOS Upstream over anti-fracking protests.
    Mr Corre said this evening:

    “In many ways it is really important now to go to the court of appeal. We have something worth fighting for.

    “This is nothing to do with fracking but about standing up for our human rights against the dangerous precedent that allows corporations to buy the law.”
    Mr Corre said he would also be looking at bringing a case on the legality
    of fracking itself under the UK’s Climate Change Act.
    Mr Boyd said:

    “We have to go to the Court of Appeal. This case has huge public interest. It deserves to be heard by the Court of Appeal.

    “We can’t just sit back on our laurels and allow a company to take out injunctions against persons unknown.

    “We have to fight back, otherwise it will open the flood gates to other companies to do the same.”

    Who drilled where in 2017? Data shows another low for UK onshore oil and gas
    The number of onshore oil and gas wells drilled in the UK in 2017 was another 50-year low for the industry.

    According to data from the Oil & Gas Authority, 2017 saw six wells drilled at four sites, in West Sussex, Surrey and Lancashire.
    But this figure included a well that was washed out and a sidetrack drilled to it.

    Friday i am going to the one year anniversary event hopefully.
    At the Cuadrilla Fracking Site and the nearby Maple Farm.
    You never know what comes up but it looks like a good crowd should be there.
    I will take a few pictures and listen to people and report back after the event within a day or so.
    Bye for now more soon from a stormy Britain.
