People of canterbury NZ - Stop Fracking
I read the following at Fiona's blog:
"Fracking, or Hydraulic Fracturing, has been linked to earthquakes, pollution and damage to aquifers. Two gas exploration fracking permits have been published, that cover a large part of the seismically active Canterbury area as we already struggle with thousands of aftershocks, displaced people, lost CBD, and changes to our way of life. I am frankly appalled that permission to do this would be given when both the UK and USA have admitted that it can cause earthquakes in active regions. There are also risks to our aquifer water supply and evidence of pollution from the chemicals used in the process. Please look at some of these articles and get behind fighting to prevent this happening. " Read more at Four paws and Whiskers
People of Canterbury, Christchurch this will affect you all. Please help to stop this madness. Go to Fiona's blog. Inform yourself and join one of the online groups or sent a letter or spread the information. We have gone through enough. Don't let them do the Fracking in Canterbury.
