An important decision is taking place today, the decision as to whether to let Third Energy frack at Kirby Misperton , you can read the proposal in the PDF of Friends of the Earth. There is a weary joke that the Northern Powerhouse that Cameron and his crew are so often talking about means Ryedale being turned into an industrial hub and the beautiful moors and Howardian Hills blotted by the ugly sites of wells.
Kirby Misperton is but a few miles down the road, and I, like a lot of other people, do not want fracking to take place. Putting our water at risk from contamination seems a terrible thing to do, the odds are probably in favour of it happening. The answer is less use of our existing power, but telling people that is like blowing into the wind! I shall keep my fingers crossed today that the council will see sense and not give the go-ahead to Third Energy.
The weather has been perfect the last few days, the garden puts on a show, the rosebuds start to appear, and the hens strut their stuff, I have lots of bean plants and courgette plants, so the vegetables from them when they appear will join the eggs on the little table outside the gate for contributing to the funds of the church.
Hawthorn blossom wreaths the countryside, with an energy that reminds us that nature is a strong and a powerful force, if only we could respect her and not treat her with such dire consequences....
