Thanks! I'm leaving again today but I will try to get occasionally via my mobile phone.

For those of us interested in fracking and its effects on communities, you may want to watch this new short documentary by VICE on oil trains: http://goo.gl/dtPYDV

I've not been up to date, is Holland now going to start fracking soon? They might as well just evict the whole Groningen province if they do I guess.

Over here, they've brought-in legislation which allows them to, in exceptional cases, drill under countryside that ought to be protected. Since the Chancellor's father is so keen on fracking, it's not surprising the Tories want to drill baby drill across the country, especially in their least favourite bit of it- the North. You'd think this whole debacle would encourage them to use the exceptional renewable sources of power we have, especially offshore wind, but when the senior coalition partner is in bed with a fracking firm... whad'ya know? :P

Also: voted against the GA resolution as per 70% of the region.

The Dutch government approved a few small-scale research studies last year, but they stopped issuing permits after Groningers protested against natural gas production in the past seven months and the resulting nationwide overall decline of support for both traditional and non-traditional land-based hydrocarbon extraction techniques. The current government policy is that "more research needs to be done to make sure we are aware of the effects" before they issue any new research permits, let alone full-scale production permits. Some concerns have risen recently about how the government is handling this, as they put suspiciously much work into making sure the reports about the recent Groningen earthquakes - directly related to traditional natural gas production - and reports on the effect of fracking will remain classified secret for the time being. Many people believe the government has already made its decision - without full parliamentary approval - and that it will allow fracking.

Personally, I am very much concerned about the methods employed by lobbyists and certain government agencies to keep the reports and proposed regulation under wraps. Some of those are borderline legal or probably illegal, including not properly informing Parliament or not involving Parliament as well as misclassifying government documents as secret to protect certain interest groups other than the public. On a more general note, there have been quite a few incidents regarding government misconduct and corruption in the Netherlands lately. That's a concern in itself.

Things like these make me hella excited for fusion power, which is still a decade or two away but that isn't that far. Almost completely clean energy from the single most common element in the universe. Hell yeah B)
