Letters in the #Manchester Evening News about #fracking etc

david jones letterThere was a corking letter earlier this week. It was by a chap who had done his PhD on storage of energy from renewables, and he dealt with the argument that pro-fossil fuel sorts deliver- “we can’t trust wind/solar power because the wind isn’t always blowing/sun always shining” – very neatly. He said it was akin to thinking water wouldn’t come out of a tap when it was not raining…

The protests at Barton Moss continue, and you can find out more here (facebook) or here.

If I can find that letter, I will scan it in. In the meantime, you’ll just have to make do with this, published yesterday. … Thanks to Brian Candeland

    Here’s one local MP who won’t be taking mince pies to the gang at Barton Moss.
    He’s on the Parliamentary Science & Technology Committee and clearly has a lot of faith in the regulatory procedures around fracking. He’s also sure that fracked gas will be able to subvert the current pricing mechanisms.

    Saw yours yesterday Marc- well done for keeping the flag flying. Surprisingly (?) letters from my friends have failed to be published- as has our demo. outside HSBC on their role in financing coal extraction.

    I apprec. it isn’t local, but if you are interested here is the press release I sent the Mule- tabloided version tweaked to make it less sickly and anodyneI’m afraid!

    Hi Marc
    Well done on the letter! The other one you refer to sounds like the one from David Jones: – I’ve emailed you a pdf of it.
    Cheers, Brian

  4. Did you read the nonsense Graham Stringer was published saying? Very pro-fracking and anti-renewables.
