British people continue to toil against the tide of political despondency in the flooded South. Heart-warming scenes of volunteers (good, honest people all) stepping up to help, off-set the stomach-churning sickness felt at the sight of our despised Prime Minister and associated cronies visiting these regions (in suits) pledging aid and calling for the people, their own people, to stand together.
Mr Cameron, have you eyes with which to see? People unite well enough unless they get into politics, or more precisely British politics. The only disunity is amongst the politicians you are supposedly good at swaying…oh, wait, no that’s wrong too, because you cheated your way to power didn’t you. The British people would have nothing to do with you or your government, but you lot control the resources they need to shore up their homes and protect the lives of their families. You know this, so you will ignore my words at first.
Disastrous and deplorable as the floods and our government’s response has been, a greater threat looms. David Cameron has given the go ahead for numerous fracking test sights to be drilled. They are being drilled now. I will not sit silent, will you?
Please, please watch this video. Watch other videos, read articles, learn the fear that plagues me as I read and write this article. Our world is about to die and we are going to kill it. Some of us with actions. Others, with silence.
Go to the websites of those companies practicing fracking and what you find are references to ‘cost
competitiveness…reducing Co2…’ the need for ‘natural gas in the energy portfolio’ (Rune Bjornson). I beg you, informed reader, look beyond your heating and cooking. Look to the future of your children, and their children. I am 22. I will likely see the slow moving pollutants emerge from these fracking sites, they will contaminate the water and my children (should I be graced with any) will suffer and die because of this.
The fracking fools are ready, willing and able to doom us and our children to a life where the land and water will be lethal, in the name of profit. Yes, make no mistake, this is a blood debt, a debt they will hardly pay themselves. A debt that, like the other debts these governments have accrued, the common man will shoulder.
In the name of FREEDOM. In the name of LIFE. Stand up, speak out. Fight.
