29.03.2013 Video and reportage on devastating consequences of fracking.
Please do share with family and friends. Easter celebration invite us to reflect about our ways of living at home Earth. Reflect about way this planet is being exploited and the urgent need for everyone to take care of nature equilibrium. Call to Our human duty to preserve and to defend natural way of living, to the responsibility to raise the quality of life now, and for future generations. Survival issues are in our hands, safeguarding all those living on this planet. Become active.
With this video we take the opportunity to wish to everyOne a Blessed and peaceful Easter. Thank You, God Bless

There are also plans in motion for Ireland to start fracking around Irish lakes!!??
Opposition to fracking is strong... to no avail till now. We are lead by yet another corrupted government! This way they are destroying the only true income: Tourism!
Landscape beauty of Eire, it's water and land pastures, all in peril like never seen before. Say no to fracking, there are way's to resort to friendly energy.

What are Fracking and Split Estate?

Split Estate - The concept of Split Estate dates back to English law, which reserved the mineral rights of all land, public and private to the king. Over time, Split Estate has come to be defined as a situation in which a property owner is not the same party who owns the rights to extract minerals from underneath the property. In fact, especially in the Western states, surface owners rarely own their mineral rights, and the party who does own them, is entitled to extract them, even if the surface owner doesn't want them to.

Fracking (see Hydraulic Fracturing)

Hydraulic Fracturing ("Fracking") - Hydraulic Fracturing is a process used in natural gas and oil extraction in which fluid (see Fracking Fluid) containing various proprietary ingredients is injected into rock formations causing them to fracture. This allows for the extraction of materials from a much larger area than would be possible otherwise. Although developed in the late 1940s by Halliburton, the technique proved too costly to be economically viable until rising gas prices in the 1990s made fracking a widespread practice in the industry. Fracking has come under scrutiny and criticism lately because of the potential for pollution of ground water, including the well water of homes near the drilling site, as well as potential pollution of streams and other habitats caused by unintended seeps.

Fracking Fluid - A mixture of water, sand and proprietary chemicals are injected into the ground during oil and gas drilling operations. The exact ingredients that are employed by companies involved have not been officially disclosed and due to exemptions enjoyed by drilling companies (e.g. the "Halliburton Loophole"), the ingredients remain proprietary and are not subject to regulation by agencies such as the EPA. Independent testing has been done on fracking fluids, however. The Endocrine Disruption Exchange, a non-profit organization headed by Dr. Theo Colborne, has identified 649 chemicals recovered from drilling operations, including Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Neurotoxicants, and other dangerous chemicals which are heavily regulated when used in most other capacities. 
"Halliburton Loophole" - As part of the 2005 Energy Bill, companies involved in natural gas drilling are exempt from EPA regulation of portions of the 649 chemicals recovered from drilling operations. Among other things, this means that companies are free to inject toxic chemicals into the ground that would otherwise be illegal without any reporting or oversight.
