The Ethical and Moral Considerations of Fracking

The Right Reverend Graham Cray made, I thought, a very moving and thoughtful address at the meeting in Pickering on 29th July. The text of the his address is attached and bears reading and digesting.
I am very grateful for his clear understanding of what it means to ‘Love thy neighbour’.The Ethical and Moral Considerations of Fracking

    I find it not a question of ethical or moral considerations to ones fellow man. Its a case of law of the jungle when it comes to making a quick buck. Im alright jack it wont affect me only my back balance. why should I worry if it screws up other peoples health and well being so long as my investment makes big bucks. Except turn the tables round and see how the fast buck makers would change their tune if it affected them in any one of these ways. We live in a selfish grab what you can world and that’s the trouble with the world today. its evil and self centred a sure disaster recipe for failure.

    I find it hard to disagree with the Reverend Graham Cray. I have enormous concerns about the long term health and environmental impacts that would be the legacy of fracking. I fear that our food chain could be compromised and also our water supplies. We have a duty to act responsibly with regard to the environment, and as a well informed society, we have no excuse for not doing the right thing.

    We live in an age where those who have the most money have the ears of our elected representatives in Parliament . I am afraid that politicians in every country appear to have lost touch with their electorate and the fact that this is who they represent. Our leaders need to find their moral compass and not be led by greed and personal benefit.
