We call on the local council to reject all fracking applications.

Why is this important?

Horizontal hydraulic fracturing, ‘fracking’, is a way of extracting oil and/or gas. Water, sand and toxic chemicals are injected at high pressure into underground rocks to shatter them. This releases the gas/oil which can be collected.

But investing in carbon-intensive fossil fuels is a distraction from the need to decarbonise our electricity supply.

And it's hazardous. Studies show that fracking pollutes water supplies (with arsenic and lead), causes earthquakes, and spoils local communities.

And there are nightmare stories coming form the States.

Like in the town of Dimock, PA, residents have reported their water turning so brown that it stains crockery. Their water was later found to contain methane, and a host of toxic chemicals.

But it gets worse.

"My son had sores up and down his legs from the water."
" My daughter... would have to get out the of the shower and lay on the floor."

Those are the words from Greg Saunter, a local resident, whose water supply was shut off for his own good. He cannot shower in his own home. Or drink water out of his taps.

Fracking has ruined his life. It cannot happen here.

We call on the council to preserve the quality of life of its residents, and reject all planning applications for fracking.

Sadly the MP for North Shropshire, Owen Paterson, Secretary of State for the Environment favours the destruction of the County that voted him in.  Will Keith Barrow the Council leader save the county and oppose Owen?  Let's hope.  Someone has to save the people from the greed of the corporations, and the genocidal plans of the Jesuit.

    It’s quite a mess, little wonder they don’t want it near politicians homes.
