“Cuadrilla said it appreciated the tremor [of 2.9 magnitude] had ’caused concern for local people’ and said ‘it is worth noting that this event lasted for around a second and the average ground motion recorded was 5mm per second. … This is about a third of that permitted for construction projects.'” https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lancashire-49471321
However, there is a much higher requirement for destruction projects.
“Cuadrilla like to point out that polyacrylamide is used for everyday purposes, for example in contact lens solution. This is a diversion – the risk from polyacrylamide doesn’t come from skin contact, it comes from being ingested into the body. Contact lens solution isn’t something you would want ending up in a cup of tea. … [Similarly] lying on sand on a beach – clearly not dangerous – [is not comparable to] fracking workers exposed to conditions where they breathe in levels above occupational silica exposure standards. This makes as much sense as saying you cannot drown in water because we drink it.” (http://www.foe.co.uk/blog/fracking-company-complains-about-anti-fracking-leaflet)
A company must be desperate to try to bamboozle us with this nonscience.
Please email your MP to ask them to oppose plans to frack in national parks and important sites for wildlife.
