Drilling companies accused of harassment by women named in protest injunctions

Reminds me a bit, of the days construction companies blacklisted people, who they thought were involved in trade union and health & safety action. Spread the net wide, ensuring you get as many people as possible, to silence the majority. Just as with the totally inhuman and unjust welfare sanctions, our legal system is becoming more and more a tool for the rich and corporations to keep people in their place.

Breaking: anti-fracking protesters become first environmental campaigners to be jailed since 1932

As with the Kinder Scout mass trespass the authorities are trying to scare people from demonstrating against ‘fracking’.  The mass trespass, changed the course of  history in England, lets hope, the sacrifice of the four men sentenced, will bring about an end of oil and gas exploitation in the UK.  Leading to a meaningful approach to climate change and not just hot air!

NS (Nuclear Ship) Savannah, First Commercial Nuclear-Powered Cargo Vessel, Designed And Used To Dump Liquid Nuclear Waste Into Ocean

In Rosyth Dockyard, Fife, Scotland, are the decommissioned nuclear submarines of the Royal Navy.  Dreadnought, the four Polaris nuclear missile submarines, Conqueror and Vanguard, surrounded by barbed wire and regularly monitored.  That was some time ago and there may be more now in the basin, slowly rotting away, with the nuclear reactors still intact inside them.  They need to be kept in the water, to keep the nuclear reactors cool, as they still produce heat.  I have no idea, what radioactivity goes into the basin, then the Forth from these hulks.  They have been sitting there for decades and yet, the UK Government wants to built more nuclear submarines?  Even the so-called peacenik Jeremy Corbyn, wants to renew the Trident nuclear ballistic missile submarine fleet!  When will this stupidity ever end?

Unfinished business at the conclusion of the Brexit bill

The fact, that NGO’s and some parliamentarians had to fight, to achieve so little, in the way of environmental protection. Is a clear indication, the UK is NOT leading on environmental issues or climate change.

Inside track
