If A Fracking Site Can’t Be Found, Is It Industrialization?

Nick Grealy brilliantly exposes the intellectual hollowness of fracking opponents who complain of industrialization, yet can’t find the fracking sites!

In Yorkshire, Louise Hammond is so concerned fracking of shale will industrialize the landscape that she traveled to Lancashire and got arrested there to prevent it.


The incoherent statement of fractivists Louise Hammond and Natalie Middleton after pleading guilty to obstructing a highway to protest fracking (click to read full story).

Back home,  Louise Hammond posted this Facebook video this week where she sets out four miles from home to discover the existing impact of gas wells; how much fracking how industrialized the landscape.

The video shows that neither she nor Ian R Crane could even find the well pad.  This does seem rather bizarre.  She’s protesting something she can’t even discover?!

Here’s an aerial view. You can see the well pad easily in the top left and the development surrounding is the Pickering Showground.


Interestingly, the Pickering Showground happens to also be the location for this noisy affair:

Noise or not, Ian R. Crane is a firm believer in fruitcake science, but even he is scratching his head and looking at the map stretched out on the car hood, unaware that he is about 20 meters away.  He is wacky enough that he may think Google is using some sort of alien technology cloaking device.

For myself, I can only say that Google Maps algorithms must have been written by a great comedian. For some reason the Pickering well pad is classified as an ATM.  Not a hole in the wall, just simply a hole in the ground of which money flows.

  1. Try missing any Bird Chopping, Low-Frequency noise illness generating Wind Turbine that does not do a thing in regards to lowering carbon emissions ? Now those are industrial machines that anitfrackers wish for until they are in view of their backyard.

  2. Nothing but nothing tells the story of the antifracking pipeline resistance movement as well as their own videos. And pictures! And Tweets,Oh my! (Unless it is transcripts from hearings or quotes in the news!) Certainly there is enough material for multiple documentaries.
