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.
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.
