I had a great set piece battle with a shill on James Delingpole’s Facebook page running through last night into this morning. Everything I was claiming to be true as regards fracking was challenged, and stated to be untrue. It was almost pantomime. I just ploughed on putting up videos as I went with Ian Crane’s reports backing up what I said, and other information, all to no avail.
We got to the bit about The Great Lakes disappearing and the Australian Great Artesian Basin being drained away by fracking. The shill posted, in reply, a US Government Department report whose job it is to measure the levels of the Great Lakes, and they state unequivocally that the levels of the Lakes are exactly the same as they used to be. I’ll put his link up at the foot, and my reply from National Geographic ‘The Incredible Shrinking Great Lakes’, which did the job of shutting him up nicely.
I noticed the great Delingpole himslef wandered in to the conversation for a brief comment, indicating that he’s sold out to fracking.
- James Delingpole Wow Henry Curteis – you’ve really fallen for the “oil industry executive knows what he’s talking about” scam. You know, I could do this too: put on a hi viz jacket, say “I’m worked in the oil industry and I know the dark truth about fracking” and persuade people like you that it’s evil.
