Currently the biggest threat to our way of life is UGEE (unconventional gas exploration and extraction); the process commonly known as fracking. The result of this has been a central effort by the group to do what we can to prevent this irresponsible development. Most of our resources have been diverted in this direction, please see this website for a more comprehensive overview of the anti-fracking movement.
We are fortunate to have a diverse range of people involved in the group and are determined to push forward our goals in a logical and passive, positive manner. The group is always looking for new members for ideas and skills. Many areas of the site permit feedback and comments and feedback, suggestions, large wodges of cash and ‘constructive’ criticism are welcome here. If you have any spare time, energy or ideas we would love to hear from you and you will find a warm welcome in our group. Our meetings are currently held in the Bee Park Manorhamilton every second week and you are welcome to come along. We will continue to update this information as best we can and we hope to soon have a comprehensive web site to keep you informed.If you are looking for specific information on the hydraulic fracturing campaign, take a look in the Fracking News section or visit the dedicated site;
Another site that has come to our attention recently is Shale Gas research Ireland by the Impact Research Group.
The Impact Research Group contrasts the promises made by shale gas promoters with the prospects for the almost 500,000 existing jobs supported by Agriculture, Food and Tourism, and the likely incompatibility involved. Their site includes information on health, veterinary concerns, the looming shale gas “bubble” and more.
