Jonathon Porritt: Another Coal Mine for Donald Trump to Embrace!

Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole

West Cumbria Mining Video from Kevin Murphy on Vimeo

The video above shows the same old coal mining methods described as “modern” the machinery is exactly the same as that used in China and Russia.

Former Director of Friends of the Earth and Founder of Forum for the Future,  Jonathon Porritt has blasted the plan for a new coal mine near Sellafield.

In his blog today Jonathon Porritt writes:

Another Coal Mine for Donald Trump to Embrace!

Fellow Greenies: help me out here, please!

Which particular fossil fuel do we hate the most? Yes, that’s right: COAL. And which particular political party hates coal the most? Yes, that’s right: THE GREEN PARTY.

So what the hell is a Green Party candidate doing supporting the opening of the first coal mine in England for more than 30 years?! And not just in any old place – just five miles from…

The Corpocracy Driving Ecocide

We must find balance individually and corporately.

The silent ecocide

Corporations have  more rights than People

The entire economy can be rebuilt on principles within the limits of the Earth’s natural resources, with strict parameters being applied to energy giants and corporations, so that they cannot exploit our last great wildernesses for short-term gain.  To do this, much re-arranging within governments would be required. Ideally, conservationists and ecological economists and sustainability experts and environmental law makers should be given political powers to become appropriate candidates to fill the seats in governments worldwide to replace the current oil barons, pharmaceutical and biotechnological stakeholders in governments that are destroying the environment and human health with their corporations, along with bankers and elite with their privileges above natural law.

The Rights of Nature should be one of the highest values that an evolved civilised society upholds, not the destruction of the environment for money and power; everything is currently upside down and inside out when it comes to values…

KCTMO – Playing with fire!

The sad day has come to pass!

Grenfell Action Group

fire

It is a truly terrifying thought but the Grenfell Action Group firmly believe that only a catastrophic event will expose the ineptitude and incompetence of our landlord, the  KCTMO, and bring an end to the dangerous living conditions and neglect of health and safety legislation that they inflict upon their tenants and leaseholders. We believe that the KCTMO are an evil, unprincipled, mini-mafia who have no business to be charged with the responsibility of  looking after the every day management of large scale social housing estates and that their sordid collusion with the RBKC Council is a recipe for a future major disaster.

Unfortunately, the Grenfell Action Group have reached the conclusion that only an incident that results in serious loss of life of KCTMO residents will allow the external scrutiny to occur that will shine a light on the practices that characterise the malign governance of this non-functioning organisation…

Our Health and Safety and the Doubling of Sellafield

Is this a case of the elephant in the room?

Letter to Tim Farron MP sent today….

Dear Tim,

Following correspondence with you regarding questions about the Moorside Health Impact Assessment we have been sent a message from Dr Ian Fairlie. Dr Fairlie has generously offered a briefing to your team on the health impacts of Moorside. His letter is below..

“Hello Tim

I write as a scientist on the causation of the raised incidences of childhood leukemias observed near Sellafield, but also at many nuclear facilities world-wide. Some people take the view that these may be due to a theoretical virus and population-mixing as proposed by a Professor Kinlen many years ago.

However this hypothesis has many problems. Perhaps the most relevant is that it moots an incoming population which carries some kind of virus or agent which “infects” the existing population and results in increased rates of childhood leukemia among them. However almost all the increased leukemias observed…

Water protectors at Preston New Road, Lancashire 

Cuadrilla have been trying for six years to get Fracking started in Lancashire since the earthquake which damaged their first unconventional well on the Fylde. They have been lying and refusing to debate in public and using the power of the oil and gas lobby to push it through government. We have been warned by families in southern Queensland and also by people affected in North America not to let it happen, because it starts with one well and will escalate to thousands.

Thanks to the lack of an investigative media, who are just a mouthpiece of the state, most people have not really become aware of the dangers to life as we know it, if you have not done your own research into the unconventional gas extraction industry. It is such a pity that not enough residents who live close to the first fracking site being developed in Lancashire are not caring enough to engage with the invasion of this destructive industry into their locality. Or is it that people always think that someone else will take care of it? There is also the conditioning of implied inevitability that makes people do nothing!

We can take inspiration from the people of Australia who participated in the Bentley Blockade, which turned around the political decision of the N.S.W government. Two Australian filmmakers are currently visiting the UK with their film ‘The Bentley Effect’ and will be in Lancashire on May 25 in Blackburn and May 26 at Ribby Hall near Wrea Green for film screenings in the evening. The Blackburn event has a workshop in the afternoon as does the Preston event.

What is amazing in this campaign is the sense of community amongst activists from all walks of life because of this threat to our environment and especially the natural water in the earth which will be contaminated by Fracking. #WaterIsLife

Fracking should be the number one concern for the UK!!

Activists needed, more people can stop this destructive industry!

Wonderland By Russell Strand

We need to unite and stand up to the mother-frackers Caudrilla this should be our main concern fracking affects us all!!! The people are currently standing up and protesting to stop this!! Why is this not getting the full attention it deserves? This should be getting as much attention as Standing rock!! One hundred people standing up to these tyrants have stopped work at the site for one day!!! More dedicated people are needed to wake up and Join the resistance!!!

People who can get to the Blackpool area can help stop this!!

For more information have a look at this group >>> Fracking Nightmare (Facebook Group)
