“As I contemplate the impacts that Fracking is having across the globe, the success and the losses – I realize the only way to stop this destructive act of extracting resources from our precious Earth is by building and uniting a stronger movement around the globe.

We are drilling our way to a place of no return as our planet continues to warm and climate extremes become more and more common. Fracking is not a safe bridge away from fossil fuels! Robert F.

This has to be re-posted in the hope that it reaches more of us. For only our knowledge and sharing of it and standing together ‘not’ to stand for things that we can then prevent will change our future, before it changes anyway.

About JJBollOX

This is an update. The slight humour aka sarcasm will be lost on anyone who hasn't read this before the update. I am, still a British male. Still living but not in Switzerland. I intend to remain, living and male. When I wrote before I had "spent the better part of two months negotiating the change in my self identity. Unemployed and sharing home with a now ex-girlfriend. I've moved. Moved on. Maybe a year has passed by. Have I moved in an upward direction? Is upward the only way to go if we are to expand, broaden and grow? Realistically, the most dramatic (not exactly decisive) direction I have taken in the time was down. Down, down and deeper than down. I fell off of a mountain. My life got complicated yet simple. This in itself is a fair summary of my personality. I have posted the first words of blogs to be written which I would like to turn into a book. 'A normal life.' Let's see how well and how fruitfully I can express my frustrations, pain, healing process and the constant changes that are life.

      Thank you for taking the time to comment. The words aren’t mine and the work was/is and was meant to be credited to Under The Blue Door.
      The sentiment – that is shared.

    Wow, Johnny – he’s 13?? That’s wisdom.
    I didn’t know what ‘tracking’ is – had to look it up. There is just so much destruction in this world, it’s nuts. And then we rebuild in other areas – & that’s nuts. It astonishes me they can force liquid between rock formations sufficient to edge them further open. That’s astonishing.
