Shale gas frac’ing wasted ‘millions of taxpayers’ cash’, say scientists; Frac quakes force Tory Gov’t to Ban Frac’ing. Fracking Free Ireland Welcomes the Ban in Press Release to all TDs & MPs while industry spins itself silly

Actually we are a vulgar, pushing mob whose passions are easily mobilized by demagogues, newspaper men, religious quacks, agitators and such like. To call this a society of free peoples is blasphemous. What have we to offer the world besides the superabundant loot which we recklessly plunder from the earth under the maniacal delusion that this insane activity represents progress and enlightenment?

Keep Ireland Fracking Free welcomes UK fracking moratorium

Keep Ireland Fracking Free welcomes the decision of the UK government to put a halt on hydraulic fracturing as this invasive technique of fossil fuel extraction is inducing earth tremors. Fracking has caused plenty of damage to communities resulting in water contamination and the death of animals, as well as having negative impacts on peoples’ health. We witness a global spike in methane emissions over the last decade due to US shale exploitation. The global warming potential of fracked shale gas is as bad as burning coal. Fracking is speeding up global warming and therefore not compatible with the Paris agreement. Keep Ireland Fracking Free hopes that this moratorium will turn into a solid ban to give communities peace and to stop any more investments in unconventional fossil fuel exploitation.

We already observe major impacts of human induced climate change. If we don’t want to steer into global climate catastrophe we need to be carbon neutral by mid of this century. Any more new infrastructure for fossil fuels is counterproductive to the Paris accord.

If we ban fracking, we must also ban its infrastructure. Therefore, Keep Ireland Fracking Free urges the Irish Government to deny permission for the building of Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) terminals on Irish shores. It’s utterly hypocritical to ban fracking at home but then import fracked gas from other places.
