Latest Digest Week Ending 24th August 2014

Special report - Rural Impact of Shale - DEFRA

MORE SIGNATURES NEEDED FOR THE BIG ONE!

I,m not big on petitions generally. But this one is important. A group of organisations, including FoE and Greenpeace, now has OVER 250,000 signatures to tell Cameron to abandon his fracking folly. Please sign and share if you haven't already done so. Next step half a million! Click on the pic to go to FoE's petition page.


UK news highlights

The main stories

The Anti-fracking camp continued at Blackpool. On Monday three further actions, blockading DEFRA offices, the new Swansea University site, and mounting "radioactive" atoms installation Lytham.

In Blackpool, Cuadrilla's offices were occupied.

Other news

Elsewhere Earthquakes in Ohio last autumn have been linked to fracking. The link is to fracking operations rather than waste injection wells.

A new look at fracking chemicals decides they are more toxic than previously thought.


Any opinions here not quotes from the week's news reports are my own.
