Guest Post by Jon and Val Mager: Why the government must block fracking based on what we learned about regulation of the KM8 site

If we are to slow Global Warming down (it is too late to stop it), we have to stop using fossil fuels.  We cannot proceed with further oil & gas exploitation, especially unconventional fossil fuels like shale gas. From people’s experience in the USA and Australia, there is the added environmental issues from High Pressure horizontal slick-water hydraulic fracturing (fracking), there is no place for it, anywhere!

As for the Environmental Agency (EA) and Health and Safety Executive (HSE), they are no longer fit for purpose.  They only deal with incidents, after the fact, when it is too late to save life and the environment.  Politicains should be acting on the ‘Precautionary Principle’, not business before people.
