Well said Ben - I really hope that people go to sign the EU Parliament Petition against ECOCIDE. Fracking will be stopped and made a crime against nature if we can get this law through - needs a miracle of 999,000 signatures in the next four days though! Come-on everyone... please help.

S+N - thanks Cal - what was I just saying in the last post? :) Didn't get this far! You've got it right Ben! We get so that we believe we're fighting individual fights ie - California, New York, PA, et al - The same with individual cities and nations in Europe, Africa and the list goes on - we must unite as one voice against the corporations that have more money than any single nation among the lot!

In the UK we are being 'sold' the idea of fracking on the back of stories of the economic benefits that it has brought in the US, including cuts in energy prices which we are told energy prices are now much lower than in the UK. David Cameron's support for fracking almost certainly is based around the same principle, money. We are due a general election in the UK fairly soon and David Cameron would dearly like to get re-elected (or at least to see his party returned to power), there is little doubt that he sees the money that fracking will bring (including the £100,000 plus 1% of the profits that local communities are being offered in they accepted fracking in their area) will help in his re-election campaign and will help people forget that his government has brought cuts in public services far greater than we have ever seen before.

England already suffers severe drought in the summer when watering lawns and gardens can result in heavy fines.Fracking uses a huge amount of fresh water which will only exacerbate the problem.

Rising energy bills are a big issue ahead of a 2015 election and Cameron is keen to tap Britain's large resources of shale gas to shore up the country's energy security as its North Sea oil reserves decline. And you have heard of all the problems with high fuel prices in the UK. Rather than worry about flacking, perhaps they should be a push to have them assist greater efforts in energy efficiency. I'm not certain the Energy Performance Certificate wll have that much of an impact. Don't know what the EPC is, probably the wrong article to be commenting on

Well Cameron would wouldn't he, and all for what, money! he doesn't speak for the general public here in the UK especially up here in Scotland where he was never elected and is loathed. No fracking anywhere, gladly signed thanks Cal.

Just to add for the benefit of our friends across the pond, the idea that this fracked gas will prove to be less expensive is proven to be false, at least here in the US, as the natural gas becomes more available there will be greater demand, and expected much higher costs for it, the number of jobs created by this industry has proven to be over estimated, the actual number of prolonged employment is far less, finally the end product of natural gas is apt (depending on where it comes from, since much of it contains far more radon) to be cleaner in usage, however the drilling not only uses 2-10 million gallons of water per well, many of the chemicals used in extraction has been known to leak into water supplies, and the fracking itself releases high amounts of methane, making fracking as dirty as fossil fuels!

Interesting point of view Lee, but energy process are high is the UK because of the push for green alternatives. That's not the case in the US, where it's widely noted that the fall in prices has been due to Fracking. It might not be good for environment, but it has controlled cost.

A lot of people will not forget the class warfare waged by this government against the poor sick and disabled including those working for low wages whilst he gives tax cuts to the rich and waves through million pound bankers bonuses.

David Cameron - a Judas P.M if ever there was one. The worst British P.M was Tony (Bliar) Blair and Cameron is coming in a close second. He is keen to be the one to change the face of Britain by initiating plans for Islam to become involved in all levels of politics, education, police, military - and so it goes on. He promised the people a referendum on whether or not they would stay in the E.U. The is the SOB that does not keep his promises.........he is in it for self aggrandisement - it is that simple. sad that morons like him can change a country beyond measure - and not for the good. The sooner he is gone and a party like UKIP is in power the better.
