Blackpool in danger of being destroyed by earthquakes say activists

#1
Due to the new type of tapping for gas called Fracking the Fylde Coast has already experienced 2 earthquakes,although measuring only 2.5 on the Richter Scale they have become a worry for the residents of the area,the test Fracking has only been going on for a few months and only a small amount of actual 'fracturing' has taken place.This does not bode well for the future when the process goes to full scale,the Geologist who has determined that the 2 quakes were a direct result of the technique has actually been hired by the drilling company,however they (the drilling company),believe that it is safe to carry on and to expand their operations in the area.

Is Fracking safe and what will happen to the Fylde Coast?......

I made the earth move on several occasions in cheepo BnB's there in the 80's.

2.5 on the Richter scale? That's about equivalent to dropping a half full beer glass. I'm pretty sure the ground would move more when a tram goes past.

I'm not sure on the risks attached to this process, but I say it's a stroke of luck that the gas has been found under Blackpool and where they can just plough on regardless without giving the risks of earthquakes much more further thought. Blackpool may be destroyed, but it's dying a slow death anyway and it will mean I pay a lot less for my gas bill.

Consider this… the opening up of shale gas reserves cut US domestic gas prices by 50%

Is the loss of Blackpool a price worth paying?

The speed that steam engines will travel at, will kill the passengers. This wonderful opportunity will be opposed by the 'usual suspects', the 'oppose anything brigade', led by the scruffy bearded sandal-wearing, Grauniad reading, long-haired, largely un-washed, mainly wired to a planet other than Earth - the Limp-Dims. The deluded and dangerous, economical with the facts, half-wit Huhne will be leading. He really is a nightmare of the failed oaf Gordon Brown proportions.

All this stupid coalition so-called government is interested in, is keeping the sandal-wearing twerps quiet and raising the prices of all utilities - including water.

Global Warming - along with the European Soviet Union, the two greatest con-tricks ever devised.
