Updated: Geological faults challenge fracking in the Fylde – new study

For years, those of us, who have some knowledge of the UK’s geology, have argued, the UK is definitely not suitable for ‘fracking’.

DRILL OR DROP?

Complex geology in one of the UK’s leading shale gas regions places a major constraint on exploration and production, scientists have concluded.

HOW MANY VICTIMS OF THE HOLOCAUST ROSE FROM THE DEAD WHEN AUSTRIA CONDEMNED BDS?

And it should be remembered, that it is the Palestinians, Lebanese and Syrians, who are the Semites.  Whilst Judaism, is a religion and not a race. Calling the support of Palestine, anti-Semitic, is actually an act of anti-Semitism and racism.

Onshore wind is cheap and popular, the government needs to catch up

Not just local community owned onshore wind, there is also local community small hydro projects, like http://stockport-hydro.co.uk/. Which need more Government support, instead of being impeded.

Why income inequality is bad for the climate | World Economic Forum We need a just transition a#GreenNewDeal #auspol #qldpol #nswpol #StopAdani Join #ClimateStrike #ExtinctionRebellion #TheDrum #Insiders #QandA

Interesting, that an organisation that represents the richest people in the World, should publish a report on inequality, which has been caused by its members. The World Economic Foundation (WEF) has done little to improve equality or to combat climate change. If anything, things have got worse, since the publication of ‘The Spirit Level’ in 2009: https://www.equalitytrust.org.uk/resources/the-spirit-level!
In fact, things have only got worse since the formation of the Club of Rome (1970) and the publication of its report ‘Limits to Growth’ 1972: http://www.donellameadows.org/wp-content/userfiles/Limits-to-Growth-digital-scan-version.pdf.
The same can be said about the United Nations, Brundtland Report, ‘Our Common Future’, 1987: http://www.un-documents.net/our-common-future.pdf. An issue, with the Brundtland Report, was that it pushed Growth, as answer, which is what the WEF does, so well!
What is the real purpose of this new report, more ‘smoke and mirrors’?

Confirming US Orchestration, Report Details Pence’s Key Phone Call to Venezuelan Opposition Leader

Once again, the ‘Axis-of-Evil’, the USA and its allies, are trying to bring about regime change.  The problems in Venezuela, have been caused by USA interference and its sanctions.  Just as its interference has caused decades of problems for Cuba, Iran, Libya, Iraq and Syria!    via Confirming US Orchestration, Report Details Pence’s Key Phone Call to Venezuelan Opposition Leader

UK “reviewing” files on nuclear bomb tests in Australia- this smacks of a cover-up

Antinuclear

“To now withdraw previously available documents is extremely unfortunate and hints at an attempted cover-up.”

“worrying that properly released records can suddenly be removed from public access without notice or explanation.”

Review or ‘cover up’? Mystery as Australia nuclear weapons tests files withdrawn https://edition.cnn.com/2019/01/11/australia/uk-australia-nuclear-archives-intl/index.html, By James Griffiths, CNN

More than 65 years since the UK began conducting secret nuclear weapons testing in the Australian Outback, scores of files about the program have been withdrawn from the country’s National Archives without explanation.

The unannounced move came as a shock to many researchers and historians who rely on the files and have been campaigning to unseal the small number which remain classified.

“Many relevant UK documents have remained secret since the time of the tests, well past the conventional 30 years that government documents are normally withheld,” said expert Elizabeth Tynan, author of “Atomic Thunder: The Maralinga Story”.

“To now withdraw…

Which Nations Are State Sponsors of Terrorism?

The United States Government has an official list of “State Sponsors of Terrorism”, and only four governments are on it: Syria (as of 1979), Iran (as of 1984), Sudan (as of 1993), and North Korea (as of 2017). None of them is a fundamentalist-Sunni-led nation, and none of them has ever attacked, nor even threatened to attack, the United States of America. By contrast, fundamentalist-Sunni terrorist groups such as Al Qaeda, which are primarily funded by the actual State Sponsors of Terrorism (mainly Saudi Arabia), have attacked the US
