Treasury BUDGET 2014
https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/293759/37630_Budget_2014_Web_Accessible.pdf
Page 35, 1.116: The government is committing to work with the oil and gas industry to ensure that
the UK has the right skills and supply chain in place to benefit from the huge potential of the
country’s oil and gas reserves. This will be crucial not only to ensure the UK benefits fully from
its shale gas reserves, but also the offshore oil and gas fields – including new high pressure, high
temperature projects – and to make the UK’s oil and gas supply chain world leading, creating
local jobs and growth across the UK.

Enjoy Our Domestic Oil Abundance While It Lasts

------------------------------------

Four reasons to stop fracking :

1) Pollution
Fracking inserts cancer causing and radioactive chemicals beneath the ground and increases climate change above ground. And it poisons
drinking water. Ok, there is legislation against the underground pollution, but that didn't stop the Gulf of Mexico disaster either.

2) Quality of life
Quality of life above ground is significantly reduced, not just by the poisoning and pollution mentioned, but also by the thousands of lorry
movements needed for each well, over many years. This ruins quality of life in the area and reduces house prices, making some homes
unsellable.

3) Costs
The lorry movements are already damaging roads around Balcombe. Who pays to repair those roads? Not the fracking company, the county council and it's taxpayers. These costs, and house price reductions, are not charged to the fracking company Profit and Loss statement, but are 'externalities'. So who benefits?

4) Profits
Whilst the costs are borne by the many local residents, there is a good deal of money to be made, by the few people who own the fracking operations, an alarming number of whom seem to be either friends of or related to the politicians (both at local and at national level) who granted permissions for the fracking to go ahead. This is the real scandal: that a few 'absentee cronies' make profits, while many others pay the costs, many others have their quality of life and house values devalued, and future generations have their earth, air and water disastrously polluted.

Interview with Ian R Crane, geo political analyst, researcher and ex-oilfield executive
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/globalpeaceradio/2013/08/15/ian-r-crane-interview
Ian Crane lectures and writes about the shocking dangers of Fracking for Shale gas. Ian explains why Fracking is such a disaster for humanity and the planet, which if unleashed on society will poison the water and the air which we rely on for survival.
We talk about the shocking truth that the government and the gas companies are ethically compromising to the point where greed and profit has become more important than even their own children’s future. Ian helps us understand that the consequences and feedback loops from decisions made now without vision or wisdom will cause us horrific damage in the future.
The decision to Frack for gas or not lies in the hands of the people and not the politicians, because is it becoming more and more glaringly
obvious to the people that their governments are not responsible enough to have such power, and cannot be morally trusted with it. People everywhere are realizing that if it is left to the politicians, our country and planet will be ruined by short sighted greed, so we are witnessing a revolution of consciousness and conscience, as peoples ethical alarm bells are ringing loud and clear, alerting us that we cannot pursue our current, destructive trajectory.

FILM with Fiona Harvey, Natalie Bennett, Professor Jim Watson and Vanessa Vine
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMiPtcrKcBo

"Energy in the Future - Where we’ll get our energy from in the future is one of the greatest challenges facing the world as we move through the 21st Century. There are finite resources and a growing population. This panel, including the leader of the Green Party Natalie Bennett, environmental campaigner Vanessa Vine, The Guardian’s Environment Editor Fiona Harvey, and Research Director of the UK Energy Research Centre, Professor Jim Watson, discuss saving energy, alternative energy and the pros and cons of controversial sources such as shale gas through fracking." — at Queen Elizabeth Hall.

Transcripts from the film:

Natalie Bennett
Wind ressources, solar, tidal, hydro,
important, who owns the ressources, community owned
NO nuclear or fracking, 40 billion subsidy on nuclear for 40 years, nuclear does not stack up on cost grounds, energy bills have risen in past years, due to rising price of gas, cause expensive energy future, energy conservation, leaky homes insulation, jobs with insulation, cut carbon emmissions, the green deal 7% loans to insulate houses, rely on renewables, wind ressources, solar, tidal, hydro,
no nuclear, frack, expensive and polluting, energy conservation, give jobs, cut carbon
Important to develop renewable energy now, I agree with CBI, decarbonisation by 2030: only 0 carbon power plants, We do need to not exploit all resources, even the cleanest gas cannot be used

Professor Jim Watson
There may be break throughs in new energy
The technologies for renewable energy already exist
There are many ways of solving energy problems, not only a few
Energy calculator online, Friends of the Earth
Wear more jumpers in the winter
We have choices
Natural gas is important to UK, heating and power
Fracking is overhyped, we don't know enough
George Osborne made assumptions

Environmental campaigner Vanessa Vine
Experiences in Lancashire
Fracked gas is not a solution or real energy security
it does not give jobs, silicosis in worker's lung
Google list of harms in Pensylvania, Queensland Australia
Unnegligent government sanctions this
Oil industry is not working in the interest of the people
Jessica Ernst in Alberta, oil and gas industry scientist sues fracking company, Incarna and Canadian Government, they destroyed her land
Concerned about how politicians handle this subject I no longer trust our government
Cuadrilla have proved themselves inept, lying

What do you do, when they are going to frack your willage?
Subterraian geology cannot be legislated for, water, air pollutions, it is beyond belief that fracking is being sanctions, gas wells leak, lots of evidence of harm, learned about it as a regular person, 38 degees, everybody has to take initiative, Milestone for carbon emmissions has been passed this year. This could cause the levels to doubble.

DEBATE IN THE GUARDIAN

Comments to the article:

Dart Energy (which Tory donor Ian Taylor's Vitol holds a 16% share of) have had their production license suspended by SEPA on their Solway field because of methane leaks around the well heads. Currently SEPA are also checking for possible contamination of the local water table by 'fracking' liquids. Fracking works in the North Sea because the pressure of water at the well heads is often greater than the pressure of the gas being produced and definitely of the pressure of any small gas leaks at the well head. Under sea it is in effect self sealing. The process also does not involve local aquifers or water tables. On fracking on land in the US has routinely been shown to cause major environmental problems through both leakage of fracking solutions in the water table and contamination of the water table with methane. The extent of the problem is highlighted in today's news that a US family have been paid $750,000 to stop their kids telling every one about the 'smell'. The problem with the argument that Coal Bed Methane extraction does not cause 'earthquakes' ignores the complex geology associated with UK coal fields based, as they are, on a number of faults in the Earth's crust. This complex faulting was a major reason why UK pits became expensive and dangerous to run. If you lubricate two surfaces already under tension the probability is they will slip to release said tension, it is after all why earthquakes happen as the tension exceeds the friction as one tectonic plate drives over or under the other. All in all if this Government had the slightest clue about what it is doing rather than simply pandering to its capitalist lusts it would be investing in renewables, especially solar panels in the SE which has the UK's highest number of sunshine hours per year. The German's are currently turning their car parks in giant solar stations. The problem with tidal stream or barrage, hydro and onshore/ offshore wind is to develop its true UK potential would mean investing in Wales and Scotland. There are no significant Tory votes in either Wales or Scotland but in Sussex the Tories and Libdems run the council and so Caudrilla part of the Gideot's father-in law's share portfollio would get an easy peasy run for planning permission for fracking .... you get what you vote for.

Ah, always good to see the traditional 'patronise the opposition into silence' approach to stifling debate deployed, as Lawson has done here.
Even the title of the piece is condescending. I can't speak for everyone, of course, but I should think the protestors would like to see the money invested in renewable, sustainable energy, rather than the tax payer paying for this now (whilst the fracking companies simultaneously receive large tax breaks, to ensure the least benefit to our economy and the most to shareholders as is the Tory way) then having to pay again to get the renewable energy infrastructure in place, as is inevitable in the not too distant future. But of course if we're not dependent on fossil fuels, and energy prices drop down to an acceptable level, a lot people don't stand to remain extremely rich.

There must be decades worth of toxic gas escaping your fathers backside.

Your first argument seems to be that there is no actual fracking in Balcombe and therefore the protest is pointless. Except that it's created a national debate, is dividing interests everywhere, and highlighting to other sites what can be achieved. I think the protest is working! Next there is a very large section essentially telling us that two wrongs makes a right. Great stuff there. Oh but you "know a bit about this", so ok then...

This superior knowledge is then highlighted by your statement that oil and gas "incidentally produce much less Co2 than coal per unit of energy produced". Well lah dee dah. Way to point out the most obvious school level knowledge. Oh and that's a capital 'O' for Oxygen. Every one of those protesters knows this and they also know that gas produces too much CO2. Less is not enough! That's been written into law through the Climate Change Act. Your next argument seems to be that you're not allowed to protest against fracking if you're commuting there in a non-carbon neutral mode of transport. Wow! Do you really need an answer to your title? That's school level knowledge once again.

I am sure this is the same Dominic Lawson who wrote so eloquently about the destruction of the countryside from those generators of renewable energy, windmills. As someone who lives opposite a wind farm in Lancashire, which is probably on top of a shale gas source, I know which I prefer. As an aside can Mr Lawson please remind me who funds his father's anti man made global warning pressure group? (a strange genetic transfer of opinion!) Are these people also funding the Frackers, if so I think the Independent should point out the conflict of interest angle at the top of these articles.

The frackers don't need funding. It will more than pay for itself if they are ever allowed to get on with it. Unlike your cherished windmills, that only exist because of vast subsidies paid by adding 10% hidden taxes on to everybody's electricity and gas bill.

Then why oh why are we giving them tax breaks, is it because they are donating money to the Tories? Clearly you have not heard about the man made climate change caused by CO2 (supported by the vast majority of climate scientists) otherwise you wouldn't make the rather pointless comments about windmills and other renewable energy sources. Your good friend Dominic like his Father Nigel doesn't believe it either but they are not scientists and have money to gain from their "beliefs"

I think you miss the point that many of the protestors want alternative energy sources, not just fracking up north or not in Sussex. Genuine protest about HOW we get energy is not NIMBYism.

Gerald, are you seriously suggesting we keep 62 million people on a small island in the dead of winter running on power transported by wires from solar panels in Spain and the Sahara? Because the sun ain't nowhere near strong enough here to power us all, even in summer. Have you any idea of the power loss over such a long distance? Obviously not. Your idea is utterly impractical.

I can't speak for all of the protesters, any more than you speak for me, but some of us have thought deeply about the problem of energy
supply, and would much rather see a mixture of distributed renewable energy sources, combined with some of the new energy storage
technologies. This combined with measures to improve efficiency and reduce waste would allow us to keep the lights on. In addition, these measures would increase resilience to energy price shocks, create many local jobs which cannot be off-shored, and if done sensibly using local investment, would generate taxes to be paid into the UK treasury. Destroying yet more of our countryside, for (almost tax exempt) foreign businesses with the potential to wreck the water table for centuries to come (yes, look at the 1-7% failure rates per year for well sealing - after 100 years they are almost all leaking) for just a few more polluting years of putting off the inevitable move to renewables will not be looked upon favourably by our children who will have to inherit the mess of a country we seem determined to leave them.

Let's be clear here: “a total area of just two square kilometres” - that means, from the article above, one hundred separate fracking sites. All of these will need the gas to be collected, so either tankers and hence roads to each one, or pipework between them. All of these will need the fracking fluid to be delivered to them and residual liquids collected. Again, either tankers and hence roads, or pipework with the potential for spills and leaks. Cuadrilla's CEO is very careful to say “a total area of just two square kilometres” and not explain over how much of the countryside these one hundred fracking sites will sprawl.

Renewable energy destroys jobs, it doesn't create them. The wind farm 'industry' costs £100,000 in subsidies every year for each job in it. Those subsidies have to be paid for by taxing the truly profitable parts of the economy. Those taxes destroy 2-3 jobs elsewhere. The only people who think that the renewables 'industry' creates jobs are those who must think the money for subsidies appears from nowhere. Unfortunately that appears to be a large proportion of the population.

By that argument we should shut down nuclear even faster as the subsidy for that runs into millions of pounds per job. And we still haven't worked out what to do with all the nuclear waste piling up.

...and as for money appearing from nowhere... perhaps you should go and look up how money in our economy is actually created. We have given a monopoly to the banks to create money from thin air and then charge interest on it. No wonder they always seem to be winning. Perhaps we could re-think our monetary system to create a type of money that does good to our country rather than destroying it?

Must not associate the Conservatives talking about Fracking rather than importing gas; and the Conservatives who closed the British coal industry on the grounds we should be importing gas.

The Tories closed down the UK mining industry replacing it with the 'dash for gas', a market driven solution. In doing so we replaced an
indigenous supply (3-400 years worth) with reliance on foreign sources. The rush to fracking smacks of similar short-termism. The energy
companies were quick to stress that UK energy prices would not come down. I fail to see why the lower Co2 content of oil and gas is stressed by Dominic, he doesn't accept global warming as an issue anyway. The maintenance of the UK's energy supply is a long term economic and strategic concern. Long term strategic thinking is something our political class is incapable of doing. The 'market' doesn't even understand the concept.

Also by closing down the coal industry they closed down the world's leading research institutes on carbon capture. Burning coal cleanly would have been one of the most effective of reducing CO2 emissions and the technology would have been worth billions in exports.

We must keep our coal fired power plants running, not close a third of them by 2016, as this silly coalition is planning to do. Wind power is next to useless - we can't run the UK on wind turbines. The government's energy policy is insane, and must be changed ASAP. Firing the idiot Davey would be a good start.

Burning coal is insane. It is verifiably the cause of "severe" health problems, and there is no workable technology for cleaning it up. Let's not forget why we've agreed to phase it out as quickly as possible.

China and India together are building hundreds of new coal plants every year. A handful in the UK will make virtually no difference to the global emissions total, so to close them down is stupid, especially as we haven't got anything to replace them with yet.

Dominic Lawson makes a plausible case for gas extraction from Balcombe unfortunately it's based on a false premise. This exploratory well may well determine that fracking is the best way to extract the gas. If they make that determination, then this entire pleasant meander through Britain's safe and pleasant landscape, is redundant and an altogether harsher reality of the very real possibility of spikes from the fractures reaching further than the 800 feet safety distance between the drilling the aquifer, arises. There is a statistical certainty that for every 20 wells sunk one will lose cement integrity of its casing and leak. There are very real and very profound risks for Balcombe and the nearby reservoir which provides water to a lot more people in the South of England, than just Balcombe. Soothing tomes from politicians, history teaches us should be met with a great deal of scepticism. 80% of the residents voted against this development, for reasons that are perfectly sound given the experiences of people in places like Pennsylvania USA.

What a lot of scare stories with no basis in fact. The report by the Royal Society and the Royal Academy of Engineering found that fracking is extremely safe provided rigorous inspection and regulation are in place. Long fractures, polluted aquifers etc. are extremely unlikely. But you prefer to believe a load of scare stories in Greenpeace and FoE press releases. Who's anti-science now?
