Fracking operations have started again in Lancashire - should be a valuable addition to our energy strategy, and a well-deseved kick in the gonads for the Green Party flat earthers and fellow travellers.

Where's the "Like" button :)

I bet most of the anti-fracking mob are paid up members of the whinging about "Thatcher" closing the pits posse. That's the coal mines which have left a legacy of polluted water courses and swarms of unnoticeable earthquakes. There's nowt so blinkered as folk.

Great Classic Vinyl@The Plough tonight. First album Let It Bleed went down well . Next up was Machine Head (at suitable volume). Not a note out of place on that one and it sounded awesome.
Next month: Remain in Light by Talking Heads and..............Moving Pictures  ;D

U2 at Manc Arena tonight.  Just magnificent as ever.

Was on the floor and for the last third of the show Hass (captainkurtz) and I managed to get about three rows from the main stage in front of The Edge - an easy underarm stone’s throw away; we could hear Larry Mullen’s cymbals acoustically.  Just fantastic to see them up so close and to witness how much graft they’re actually putting into it. And the little nods and smiles to the first few rows.  They truly are a class act.  8)

It seems that operations were suspended (may still be) due to a minor earth tremor.... ::)

My bands debut album Turn Around And Face The Sun has been released today and it's already had over 500 listens on Spotify
Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind. Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

Very Minor. Magnitude 0.8.

Ollerton, not too far from me - in easy cycling distance - is at the centre of a seismic activity zone. Frequently up to magnitude 2. Being as earthquake magnitudes are a logarithmic scale, this is appreciably larger than anything near Quadrilla's fracking site.

Move along, nothing to see - or feel - here.

The cloud-filtered rays of the setting sun highlighting the folds of the Derbyshire hills. Apart from the wind, a great day to be up on the tops on your bike.

Went on a race circuit driving experience today and got to drive an Aston Martin Vantage. Absolutely beautiful car!

Surely the question should be, before they starting fracking how many earthquakes were recorded in the area vs after they started - looking at the link you posted in the last 100 days of the last 31 recorded earthquakes 29 were in Blackpool the first one just days after fracking started. Between end of 25 July and 12 October there were no recorded earthquakes in that area - so the correlation of fracking and seismic activity is quite strong I would say.
In my opinion there are better ways at sourcing energy for this country other than fracking - more investment in Solar is particularly needed along with wind and wave / hydro electric power.
