A while ago there was a report of a sink hole developing in Louisianna. Things are getting much worse. Crude oil and methane gas is seeping out and poisoning the land.

i wonder if fracking has anything to do with this?

Considering that Japan had another earthquake produced tsunami today and it barley got a mention on the news. This should put things into perspective.

America says there are ready to invade Syria for "supposedly" preparing to use chemical weapons on its own people.
So what is stopping the rest of the world from getting together and forcing, nay doing the job themselves, and taking over the offending part of Japan, to protect their citizens and the rest of the biosphere from the certain ravages of the ongoing radiation leak from Fukashima?

Apathy and fear plus you hardly ever hear this place mentioned these days on MSM

It's probably the biggest unrealised tragedy of our generation. The whole lot around the world should be shut down yesterday. Why is it that only the Germans seem to be showing any common sense here. I've always thought that they are just ticking time bombs and one of man's stupidest inventions.

Typical of a government minister. Says one thing, then when his masters whisper in his ear, he does a complete about face.
The people in the commenets section are not happy. It may also harm some restaurants.

When is a report on the dangers of GMO by independant scientists,not concidered true and relevant/ When the European Food an Saftey Authority deem it so.

So our government in its infinite wisdom(they ahve been bought) has decided to allow fracking to resume in Lancashire. They have even given them a waiver on polluting the air and water. When you consider what the Enviroment Agency do to a farmer whose slurry contaminates a water course,this is very generous.
When you also consider that livestock in fracking areas in the U.S. are far more likely to be ill from some "UNDEFINED CAUSE" than those away from fracking areas. Our government must interpret news of these cases very differently from you or I.
http://openchannel.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/11/29/15547283-livestock-falling-ill-in-fra cking-regions?lite&ocid=msnhp&pos=5

There is also this report from the U.S. about the impact on aquifers.
http://www.opednews.com/populum/linkframe.php?linkid=159901

These reports show the impact on our environment and food chain which will be passed on to us.
So will we as consumers, benefit fom cheaper gas to compensate for the ecological time bomb that the government will be creating?
There will be no price benefit.
It is when I come across insane decisions like this that I hope the sun will send forth a Carrington effect sized flare to put a stop to wanton destruction of our biosphere.

Ha, glad it's not just me having such fantasies! lol

I heard about the fracking on the radio this morning. The newsreader briefly described the process and then mentioned the earthquakes which can result afterwards. I was surprised to hear this on the bbc- the earthquake scenario. I wonder how many souls will be concerned?

Yep, you could be right! lol
I still find it hard to believe people don't find this news of concern. I read some comments on the bbc website article and there is a mixed response. Some comments re water pollution and corrupt energy companies. I understand some of the locals will benefit from the industry via work etc, however this process is still polluting the environment and as we all know there are some real possibilities to be explored re free clean energy production. Of course this will not happen, where's the money in proper sustainability. It's write to your MP time again.

There are paid shills all over the internet these days, paid to counter negative stories with a positive spin. In fact we are amidst the biggest battle right now all over the internet in many areas. One TPTB have woken up to....personally I don't think they'll win.

There might even be one or two here still ;)

All over the world land volcanoes are becoming violently active,the one on the border between Chile and Argentina got a brief mention. Sadly there has been no news at all about undersea volcanoes, these can have an even more catastrophic effect on the environment than their land based counterparts. In that the currents can spread their ejecta into fish feeding /breeding zones totally wiping out the ecology.
http://mytechnologyworld9.blogspot.in/2013/01/bizarre-underwater-volcanic-eruptions.h tml

There has also been a massive increase in the number of sinkholes around the world.
This site posts news of them and other events. I recommend watching the beginning of nuke radio No 76 it has video of the Fukashima waste coming ashore Hawai's beaches, also the extreme weather video. Can anyone guess what object seems to be flying into the volcano?
http://ascendingstarseed.wordpress.com/category/earth-changes/sinkholes-earth-changes /

Then there is the "official" earthquake list from National Geographic. Up till 2011 there is a noticeable rise then a fall in 2012. Strange as there were lots of reports of earthquakes coming from many varied sources. Mainly from areas that do not suffer from them.
http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eqarchives/year/eqstats.php

When the MSN do not give these events the air time they deserve. You have to ask yourself why?

Today the 1.00pm radio news talked about the coming food shortage and its effects. This has been brewing for a number of years now and when there is nothing that can be done about it,that is when they put it into the main news.
Goldman Sachs have led the way in using food commodities to make massive profits. They were buying and storing vast amounts of basic food stuffs to force up the prices. How on earth can, starving people, be considered legal let alone good business practice and ethical?

So now our government want the farmers to push for growing GM crops.
British farmers do not want GM crops they have seen the effects of doing deals with Mansanto,Sygenta et al. Super weeds,super pests,poorer yields,increase in pesticide/herbicide use,the land becoming less fertile. Hundreds of thousands of Indian farmers committing suicide.

British consumers do not want GM products in their food. They have seen how the bodies metabolism changes and the body cannot cope with the freaky nature of GM high fructose corn syrup,causing obesity and other ailments.

So if the environment minister is not listening to us,then who has his attention? The health minister had donations from private medical businesses,to help with the running of his office. Then a bill was passed that allowed said companies to bid for NHS contracts. Could it be that GM companies are doing the same?

Some good news on the GMO front. A judge who thew out a petition against Monsanto is to hear an appeal. She was wrong on so many points even a five year old would not have been so ill informed.
To back up the appeal many organic and small family farmers are going to Washington too.
http://www.activistpost.com/2013/01/family-farmers-to-travel-to-washington.html

At the bottom of the post there are links to other Monsanto reversals. I hope this will be a growing trend.

P.S. would you eat rice if you new it had been spliced with human genes? (vegetarians take note)
They are growing a rice crop "OUTDOORS" that has been spliced with human liver genes. This is not for human consumption it is for pharmaceutical use. By being grown in the open there is no way they can stop it from contaminating other crops.

When they tried to grow it in Missouri there was a massive outcry so they moved quietly to Kansas. How many more sites are crops like this being cultivated?

The first link might not seem to be linked, but it definitely is, & it also refers to a RP show.

I believe that "fracking" will also badly influence these lines.

Nice post DK.

More good news on the GM front one country bans GM maize from being grown and another says all Produce containing GM must be labeled.
