  • merc,

    I see Labour as part of it's enviro pitch is promising to look into the affects of fracking. Gerry on the other hand is looking to probably subsidise it.

    Interested folk in North Canterbury can catch GASLAND
    - a US based Fracking documentary by Josh Fox

    Watched it last night. Absolutely shocking.

    I’m not interested in Auckland being like every other city in the world, generally. We are what we are

    .. the largest Pacific/Maori city in the world, for one. I look forward to more architecture reflecting that, like the Manukau Events Centre, and governance that reflects those long traditions.

    So if fracking is causing earthquakes in places that don't normally get them, with some of those in Oklahoma recently being about 5ish, do we really want to find out what they'd do in a seismically hyperactive place like NZ?

    As bad as man-made earthquakes are, that's far from the worst of it. We must never allow fracking here. At all.

  • Hilary Stace,

    I was following those Oklahoma earthquakes on twitter (I follow earthquakes everywhere) and there were several, and some quite big and house damaging.

    There is also the tar sands issue in the US which is fracking related and yesterday protestors surrounded (ie encircled) the White House. Naomi Klein and various others tweeted about it, but I don't think it made the news here.
