Nope they didnt. The Cuadrila guy on the BBC said that after investigating the local geology they decided that they WERE responsible for the small tremors but could make sure it didnt happen again. BBC interviewer was only interested in the fact that they did cause the tremours

I'm not sure why the BBC green bigade are trying to sabotage this project with negative propaganda.

We'll be needing this British source of gas to provide 24/7 backup for the wind farms they drool over.

Thank you thank you. It was all in there I saved it and printed it.

It's not the original but it might be helpful.

Did either of the reporters raise the issue of earth tremors generated by Geothermal Energy?

I recently noticed this post on the DM site:-

"You wouldn't be able to use a computer without the Theory of Relativity...... - ZedsDeadBed, Truro, UK, 3/10/2011

15:53" ( my quotes )

Might be an interesting subject for discussion if we can persuade Zed to explain what she meant.

It seems that all traces of the papers linked by Orkneygal two days ago have been removed from the internet. The papers were about a japanese satellite called UBUKI which was measuring emissions of CO2 from a grid of regions across the globe.
The original link was to a thread on suite101.com which linked to JAXA (Japanese Aerospace eXploration Agency). The satellite was launched in 2009 and the papers announced the results after one year of observations. The results announced showed that in fact the developed nations were low emmiters or even Carbon sinks whereas the biggest emissions were from underdeveloped regions, Scary stuff!
The suite101.com link no longer exists and there is no trace of this on JAXA.
Orkneygal also linked some online papers that sadly I did not follow at the time. Today I followed that link and read the four PDF pages available. These pages were about uncertainty levels in their findings but the first page was numbered 162, I wonder what happened to the rest of the report?

I followed the link at the time and copied the following:-

Industrialized nations emit far less carbon dioxide than the Third World, according to latest evidence from Japan's Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). Indeed, the IBUKU data indicates that the areas of highest CO2 emissions are precisely those regions with most vegetation and least industry and thus less able to pay. Thus, the unthinkable could be made real: the greenhouse gas theory of climate change may collapse in the face of empirical evidence that industrialization is shown to have no link to global warming. For more information the IBUKU achievement is published in the Scientific Online Letters on the Atmosphere (an online thesis magazine) issued by the Meteorological Society of Japan. Sources: JAXA, Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency, Greenhouse Gas Observation Satellite 'IBUKI' (GOSAT), accessed online: October 30, 2011.

I hope tahat helps.

David Whitehouse has another interesting post at GWPF, When Did The Land Warm?

Did I imagine the Richard Black thread ? Oh I do hope so.

I watched BBC news a lot today and later watched Sky news briefly. During several hours of BBC news the issue of fracking near Blackpool was discussed. The BBC had a representative from Cuadrila (hope I spelt that right?), the company doing the fracking. This guy was indeed asked what fracking was but his answer only related to the process and not the resource. Questions then centered on the links to the massive 2.3 tremours and whether if these tremours did not stop (despite assurances that they have now put safeguards in place), would they have to shut down?
During my brief viewing of Sky, a different guy was interviewed. However in this interview the size of the resource was mentioned as well as the potential benefit and the question was asked "should harmless tremours at the 2.3 level be allowed to get in the way?" Interesting or what?
