Theresa, a rethink needed on fracking
We are NOT the 'shouting few' Claire Perry MP would wish us to be... nor
are we a bunch of NIMBYs from 'the Desolate North' that Lord Howell of Guildford tried to paint us as and nor are we
some fringe bunch of 'swampies' as many of the sensationalist media...

Imperfect, Flawed & Sorry...
There is no way any of these words is going to be right for
all… but I do feel I need to say them for clarity and in order to put the
incident and subject in one place. I hope too that Miriam Lewis reads this and
understands that the rage we engaged in with...

From the article:
[Activists are hugely important in raising public awareness. So it was disappointing that three environmental activists were sentenced to between 15 and 16 months in jail for their part in a protest against fracking in Lancashire. This punishment, for causing a public nuisance, is unduly harsh and disproportionate. The 2008 Climate Change Act, committing the UK to an 80% reduction in emissions by 2050, was a world-leading piece of legislation. Now the advisory Committee on Climate Change says we are on track to miss legally binding targets, and that this looming failure is partly attributable to government. As well as transport emissions and the removal of incentives for insulation, it has raised concerns about the regulation of fracking. Fracking – or shale gas extraction – is unpopular in England (it is banned in France and Scotland). Campaigners are also opposing government proposals to smooth the planning process for frackers. We do not advocate breaking the law. But when the news on climate change is so alarming, the commitment of green activists around the world is one reason for hope.]

Fracking involves 500+ vehicle movements per frack - there are multiple fracks per well - multiple wells per pad - multiple pads planned... Government had this report and countless others warning of the harms of pollutants on our unborn children and the intrusion of those pollutants on the sanctity of our wombs where we nurture them. Then there's us, our children with asthma and all the others to be impacted... but government says YES to fracking! WTF... should be done for future-manslaughter of Lancashire infants if they get this going:

[“It is an unacceptable situation that there are factors a woman cannot control that adversely affect her unborn baby,” said Mireille Toledano, at Imperial College London, and who led the new research published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ).

“We know that low birthweight is absolutely crucial,” she said. “It not only increases the risk of the baby dying in infancy, but it predicts lifelong risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease etc. You are setting in stone the whole trajectory of lifelong chronic illness.”]
