WIRRAL AGAINST FRACKING – PUBLIC AWARENESS MEETING

https://www.facebook.com/events/230513217158047/?ref_newsfeed_story_type=regular

UNCONVENTIONAL GAS PUBLIC AWARENESS MEETING – WITH FRACK OFF
Welcome all concerned residents!

THE LICENCES IS THIS AREA –
UCG (Underground Coal Gasification) – There are 2 licences granted; Cluff Natural Resources hold the license to use UCG in the Dee estuary & Riverside Energy Ltd are licensed for UCG in Liverpool Bay.
UCG holds the most worrying risks of all unconventional gas extraction. Still highly experimental, it involves setting fire to coal underground. The synthetic gas produced is extracted, (made of carbon monoxide, hydrogen & methane) UCG has no safe history & attempts have resulted in a long list of environmental disasters.

CBM (Coal Bed Methane) – Gas giant IGAS hold the licence to set up industrial drill rigs across the Wirral.
CBM rigs drill into coal seams & pump huge amounts of water out to allow the methane gas extraction. Risks inc depletion of the water table, subsidence, waste water high in radium & similar to fracking for shale gas; increased carbon emissions, & methane pollution of air & water.
30-50% of CBM wells are then fracked, using toxic hydraulic fracturing fluids (clean water, sand & toxic chemicals) at high pressure.
CBM wells have low gas production, & so many wells are required.

SPEAKERS – We have invited well informed speakers from the Frack Off team to present the evidence gathered from countries using fracking & experiencing the serious HARM CAUSED by these forms of gas extraction.
There will be a short video & presentation. Then time to ask questions & share information.

The mainstream media have not been reporting the risks involved, so please come & find out all the evidence of the immediate & permanent damage the UCG & CBM industries can cause, and what we can do to stop it happening.

Lets make The Wirral a FRACK FREE ZONE.

THIS IS URGENT & WE DO HAVE A CHOICE…
The government is backing these methods, for financial & political reasons, so we need to be informed & stand together to protect our health & futures.
If we do nothing, the gas companies will go ahead & permanently poison our drinking water & land with radioactive & carcinogenic materials (inc. benzene, toulene, arsenic, cadmium, lead & mercury).
** The industry uses our drinking water but has no way of cleaning out these contaminants**
All the fracking processes destroy the geological structure, leading to earth tremors and further water contamination.
Communities standing strong together is the only way forward, to stop this madness…

TOGETHER WE CAN STOP THIS…COME TO THIS EVENT & LEARN MORE

PLEASE NOTE –
There are 2 planning & organising meetings at the same place on
Weds 4th June & Tues 10th June at 7.30.
This is the beginning of the Wirral’s community group getting organised.
You can just pop in to pick up leaflets to help advertise this event, or stay for the meeting to get more involved in supporting your community to oppose the licenses in place.
Looking forward to seeing everyone… lets work together to say a clear NO !
