“Fracking” Earthquakes and Cartoons

Blackpool Central Beach and Tower

A friend just sent me a link to an article in the Wall Street Journal which makes a “”most likely” connection between Fracking and small Earthquakes in Blackpool, England.

Blackpool is an old seaside resort town, not exactly our idea of the English countryside, but it is a valuable resource to the people who live and vacation there.


While you’re at it, check out another article on the same website about children being targeted in cartoons about “fracking“. This is not subtle. For another link see below:


I’m beginning to hear the words, “Hydro-Fracking” everywhere these days. Something big is happening, and we’re just skimming the surface in our little town. Our neighboring Town of Ithaca’s Common Counsel just voted to ban Hydro-Fracturing from municipal land. There will be much more about this in the near future.

Some people seem to be in a position to make a lot of money. Just who these people are, I’m pretty sure it won’t be us locals, other than a bit of revenue from the workers who come in with the big rigs to do the drilling.

  1. That coloring book is sickening.

    • I can’t believe there’s anyone in favor of fracking other than the companies pursuing it.

      It’s like around here, where a proposed wind farm is being vigorously contested because of negative effect on tourism and property values. It just seems so ludicrously short-sighted to me. I wonder how many people would actually love to go swim in a beautiful lake and see the windmills in the distance and feel good about supporting real clean energy. And if sustainability is in the future, property values will recover. I have literally not heard one word about long term value or sustainability.

      • Good point.
