Spare this beautiful place

In this fragile place,

where greed talks loud.

In this beautiful place,

of moors and farmland.

In this tranquil place,

where streams run clear.

In this proud place,

where villages have stood

for centuries.

In this threatened place,

where decisions, made

in council chambers

and behind lobbyist doors,

will change it

for ever.

In Ryedale, North Yorkshire.

 

Why would you frack here?

  1. Such a beautiful location! I hate the whole idea of fracking — here in Australia we are facing the same problems with the CS & G industry (fracking is known here as coal seam gas). Same thing, same dangerous practices.
