PETER LAZENBYFRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2018

A FRACKING site in Lancashire today suffered its worst earth tremor since the controversial process began 12 days ago, bringing gas production to a halt.

The tremor, at a 0.8 level on the scale used to measure earth tremors, breached the maximum 0.5 “red level” at which the process has to be immediately suspended.
Gas extraction by energy exploitation firm Cuadrilla has been halted at the site at Preston New Road, near Fylde, for 18 hours.

The tremor took place two kilometres underground and was the 16th in eight days at the site, since the government allowed fracking to proceed following a seven-year ban on the controversial gas extraction process.

Fracking operations were banned in 2011 following earthquakes at a site near Blackpool.

These money grabbing leeches are being allowed to literally fracture our landscapes for big profit, NOT to bring cheaper fuel prices for the masses. Although that`s what they will tell us all. Fossil fuels are meant to be a thing of the past in favour of wind/wave and solar, yet here they are still being given consent to cause irreversible damage. Fracking is banned in Scotland but that won`t stop Cuadrilla from appealing any decision not to allow them to drill. These morons don`t give up. I just hope the Scottish government never give them an inch.

I hope a massive sink hole opens up directly beneath their operational site and they disappear into it. Causing `minor` earth tremors means nothing to them. It`s all systems `go` the next day. Don`t worry everyone, they have it all under control....
