RADON GAS AND FRACKING

Study suggests fracking could release radon from ground

Posted on February 5, 2016

A new study in the USA has linked a rise in levels of radon gas with fracking.

Radon is a colourless, odourless radioactive gas. It’s formed by the radioactive decay of small amounts of uranium that occur naturally in all rocks and soils.  The main danger from high radon exposure is the increased risk of lung cancer. For most people, radon is the single largest source of radiation exposure whether they are at home or at work. Radon can be released by mine workings and is soluble in water.                                                                                                             Originally published in USA Today, by Liz Szabo and Doyle Rice.

ASTROTURFERS

You won’t believe how far these PR firms are willing to go in order to manipulate you.

Elite groups with power and unimaginable wealth can no longer rely on the press and state apparatus to pull the wool over our eyes. In the age of social media, of mass movements, of a large and increasingly sophisticated network of activists with guts, with teeth, with the power to make corporations hurt when they overstep the line, it should come as no surprise that the money men look upon protest groups with fear, and something very much like envy.

Enter the ‘astroturfers’, so-called because they look like campaigners, concerned locals, a grass-roots movement – but, get up-close and it’s easy to see that this grass is fake.

Energy storage is finally poised for a breakthrough

“It doesn’t always rain when you need water, so we have reservoirs – but we don’t have the same system for electricity,” says Jill Cainey, director of the UK’s Electricity Storage Network.

But that may change in 2016, with industry figures predicting a breakthrough year for a technology not only seen as vital to the large-scale rollout of renewable energy, but also offering the prospect of lowering customers’ energy bills.
