Here in Pennsylvania, where frackers waive big bucks around, I'm afraid I already know the outcome. I've sent the petition on to a friend from S. Africa who lives in the States now.

Oh Gawd! Here come the Frackers and there goes the neighborhood. Don't be stupid like in the US and let this happen to your pristine lands. Remember, America used to be beautiful too. Not so much anymore.

Action taken.
But we can't seem to be able to ban it in our own backyards, so i pray that they are smarter on this than our own politicians, and ban it altogether.

The Karoo desert does not need to be destroyed in order to fuel humanity’s addiction to unsustainable energy. Please refrain from introducing hydraulic fracturing into the Karoo deserts. Signed thanks Cal!

Thanks Cal, I watched a programme yesterday with business people on, and they just dont get it, to them it is just about money thats all...they cannot grasp that the fracking will destroy the fragile Karoo. you could see it, all they see is what will boost the economy...the dollar signs infront of their eyes beckon...we have so much coal here that its insane, we can grow bio fuel with ease, so why frack the karro? because they can?
