The UK government will attempt to buy off communities by increasing compensation for fracking operations after announcing plans to deny them the use of trespass laws. This comes just as several more billion barrels of oil were found in southern England.
Ministers will propose that 800,000 pounds (US$1,350,000) on average will be added on top of the existing program, under which a lump sum of 100,000 pounds ($168,620) and 1 percent of revenues are paid out to affected communities when a test well is turned on.
The new figure is a result of cumulative payments announced by the Department of Energy and Climate for lateral wells built around existing sites.
The plan is to have 10 wells on average at each site with an additional four lateral wells.
The initiative appears to be a move to reach out to homeowners disgruntled with the fact that trespass laws will not apply to the oil industry. That is a big win for energy companies, however.
The report detailing the big find will be released on Friday. Its authors at the British Geological Survey (BSG) are expected to announce somewhere around 1,300 trillion cubic feet of shale gas reserves in the counties of Kent, Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire. But the task of analyzing whether the extraction is economically viable is yet to be undertaken. The BSG has already found large shale gas reserves in the north.
Despite the report’s findings, other new research has suggested that Britain will run out of oil, gas and coal within five years. And so will neighboring France – and Italy, which has less than a year of oil left. Russia is currently among the biggest oil giants in the world, with 50 years of oil, 100 years of gas and more than 500 years of coal.

Fracking is a weapon, and has nothing to do with energy. This document explains why weapons are being deployed against the people. ‘Silent weapons for quiet wars’. Slavery and genocide.
VIDEO – listen but don’t watch. Or turn off sound and read using the pause key.
In brief, people will surrender their real wealth in return for the promise of illusory greater wealth. Cue farmers and other landowners signing away their lands to frackers for a bag of beans. Their lands will never have any value ever again, once they are entirely and permanently poisoned with chemicals. The public must be distracted with matters of no importance by the media, while these weapons are deployed against them. Fracking is only one weapon being deployed against us.
They use people’s greed against each other, to create economic slavery for the people, and finally genocide through warfare.
TAP – Fracking is an economic weapon, and a part of that genocide. This CIA document is a precursor to Agenda 21, explaining the mentality of the power elite, which fears that people will acquire knowledge the same as they alone formerly possessed. Hence their rush to enslave and kill the people. It’s all based on the belief that they are clever enough to control everything with scientific calculation. The war is a knowledge war and a cultural war. Are the people capable of working together as one to stop these programmes, or are we to be divided and set against each other by their manipulations. The key of this strategy is to divide people from each other. As people are attacked, they tend to stand together.
A key to their thinking is to stop people being aware of mathematics. Another is the use of taxation as a weapon, and the use of upper classes to hold control over lower classes. The rise of the lower classes must be resisted as long as possible to protect the elite at the top. People search stability for survival and to enable offensive activity, same as the elites, yet they are irresponsible. They hire politicians to face reality for them. Politicians promise all and deliver nothing. The Police are soldiers. It really is a load of gobblygook trying to be far too clever. Yet thinking like this is what we are currently faced with on a global scale. The elites are very afraid of the masses, hate us and despise us. Slavery and genocide are their chosen solution.
Yet as we are attacked, we tend not to divide as they believe but to stand together. Agenda 21 is simply a more developed version of Silent Weapons for Quiet wars. Clearing everyone from the countryside is a way to stop community from working together. People in towns are more easily divided up and used to suppress each other. Country people will form a community to fight authority attempting to destroy them…except the very few whose greed can be manipulated. They are the biggest danger we face.
