The ‘Extreme Energy in South Wales’ microsite, and the upcoming tour of South Wales,

I am happy to forward details of Paul Mobbs’ upcoming tour of South Wales.
Please note the MAESTEG event in particular, on 23rd November:

In advance of my tour of South Wales in a week or so (details
below), I’ve launched the “Extreme Energy in South Wales” microsite.

The purpose of the page is to provide a focus for the unconventional gas
developments that are about to target this area over the next few years.
Note that this is a temporary design — the final page will be uploaded
when the new Free Range Network ‘Extreme Energy in South Wales’ briefing
is launched at the end of the month.

The page contains an extensive collection of videos and official reports
— for people to browse, educate and enlighten themselves — regarding
the impacts of these new “unconventional” fossil fuel technologies, now
being rolled out without any cogent Government analysis in many areas
around the UK. The official position is that provided that these
facilities are “properly run and regulated” there will be now problem;
but what the information from scientific reviews and official reports
tells us, especially (in the content of South Wales) in Australia, is
that these processes are inherently pollution and harmful to ecological
and human health.

The ‘South Wales’ microsite builds upon the two other launched recently:

    October 2013 Today, in advance of my tour of the Marches this week, I’ve launched the “Extreme Marches” web page . The purpose of the page is to provide a focus for the unconventional gas developments what are about to target this area over the next few years (the first application for exploratory drilling went in at the end of September – details of that can be found on the web page). The page also combines information about the likely scope of development across the area, there are videos related to fracking/coal-bed methane developments elsewhere, and there’s an extensive library of official reports and scientific studies related to the health and environmental impacts of unconventional gas production.

    Will Warsaw climate talks point way to new deal? WARSAW, POLAND — Climate envoys from rich countries, emerging economies and low-lying nations at risk of being swamped by rising seas will meet in Poland for the next two weeks to lay the groundwork for a new global warming pact.
