Fracking & Shale Gas in The Calder Valley.

A facebook group,Keep Your Fracking Hands Off Calderdale! has now been  formed.

If you like living or walking in The Calder Valley you better make the most of it while you can.This 2 page spread appeared in The Halifax Courier  a couple of weeks ago.

For some reason it was never put on the paper's website,so that's why I have had to scan & reproduce here.

I think its not really journalism ,more like propaganda.

Not 'balanced ' in any way.

it contains the usual stuff about bringing new jobs to the area.But nothing about worry over possible quakes etc.No mention either about profits being siphoned-off to the American Companies who will be running the show.

We are being softened up me thinks........(click to enlarge)

  1. so sad that the only winners here will be the company that owns it. do not be fooled into thinking your bills will go down, they wont! it is a massive con. The dangers are very real, and what is worse is that long term studies have not yet been done. the short term ones already prove a massive decline in health through poisoned water and air. also a large reduction in house prices, not to mention the ugly eyesore it creates,
