U.K Energy Reaches Crisis Point, Britain
Announces New Oil and Gas Leases and Lifts
Moratorium on Fracking

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 9/11/2022 1:06:31 PM

There is a particular historical irony in the timing. On the same day King Charles III ascends the throne, previously Europe’s most isolated from consequence – yet loudest voice in chasing the catastrophic climate change energy policies, the British government is forced to reverse course on years of energy regulations and restrictions. Britain’s new Prime Minister Liz Truss announced, “a new round of oil and gas licensing will come next week with more than 100 licenses issued. A moratorium on fracking will be lifted and planning permission can be sought where there is local support,” in an urgent emergency effort to lower energy costs for British citizens.

A sane response to a crisis caused by the fools buying into the Climate Scam, and trusting in buying energy supplies from an enemy state....Russia. I believe that UK bought little or no energy directly from Russia, but much of the rest of Europe did, and that freed up supplies for UK. And all the while the Climate Scammers have been undermining the normal energy infrastructure and replacing it with smoke and mirrors, and ultra expensive, extremely unreliable "green" sources. And these "green" energy sources prove to be NO energy sources much of the time.

Well you may not understand the implications of a hammer flying at your head, but at least you understand the implications after it hit your head. Hopefully you don’t conclude hammers need to be banned.

Thank goodness the opportunity of a new PM in my home country will instill bit of sanity into their ridiculous energy policies. Boris was neither here no there in policies and wanted to please everyone - big mistake. Trump called it when he said the Russian pipe line contract was a Yuuuuge Mistake for Europe. Maybe Germany will wake up!!

Yes indeed, OP, I doubt very much if we will hear King Charles and his son William mouthing off about climate change or other such nonsense. I remember even Her Majesty said she was proud of her family tackling those issues. So many fell for the rubbish which has brought the nation to an energy crisis!!

Fracking, in the USA where the trained people and infrastructure is already there, is pretty quick to bring on stream. But many of Brit oil leases are offshore in the hideously violent and cold North Sea, if those are where they are going to drill next.......five to ten years before a barrel of new crude shows up at markets.

The left's reasons for banning fracking quite literally don't hold water. Production casing or thick steel pipe around 9" in diameter is run from the surface to the production zone and, along with the larger diameter surface casing, is cemented in place to protect the fresh water formations, if any. A typical pay zone for fracking in the U. S is between a mile and two miles below the surface. The only instances where fracking resulted in a polluted fresh water aquifers is associated with the criminal negligence of wildcatters trying to save money by failing to set the appropriate surface and production casings as required by state regulators. The feds have no place in banning well stimulation as no well that I'm aware of perfectly splits the boundaries of two or more states, such that there is no interstate commerce involved until sold, if then. Offshore drilling and production does have federal regulations but not to protect what is known as fresh "ground water," as you have hundreds of feet and many tons of salt water from the surface of the sea to the point where the drill bit meets the sea floor. The whole purpose of fracking is to open up "tight," non-porous or impermeable formations and often involves high pressure pumping of sand or ceramic beads into the newly opened cracks in the formation to hold them open, improving production yield. A huge advantage of fracking is that it allows the exploitation of oil and gas from tight shale formations, like the Marcellus in NY and PA, previously not tapped due to the low inherent permeability of shale formations. Of course NY shut that down due to their politics.

You know the phrase self-aware? It does not apply to Jared Kushner, the former president’s son-in-law. He somehow weaseled his way into the center of COVID planning in the White House. He dragged along two college buds, Nat Turner and Adam Boehler, two mega-rich kids without a lick of experience in pandemics or public health. Together with totem Mike Pence, two lifetime medical bureaucrats Fauci and Birx, plus Pfizer board member Scott Gottlieb, they all came to have huge influence over the lives, liberty, and property of every American. And they loved every minute, as Kushner’s own book reveals.

A federal judge unsealed more portions of the Department of Justice (DOJ) affidavit that was used to obtain an FBI search warrant of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago last week, revealing that the former commander-in-chief turned over Human Intelligence Control Systems and Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) materials. What the documents entailed was not disclosed by the government, according to the newly released version of the affidavit (pdf), which was uploaded Tuesday. More portions of the court document were unsealed, although much of it remained redacted.
