I attended the presentation given by Ian R Crane, ex-oilman and whistleblower at Byron on November 22.

He made it quite clear that CSG companies will make it their business to infiltrate opposition groups in order to find where the least resistance is.

They only need access to one property and with directional drilling technology can drill 11km in any direction, puncturing and poisoning the water table

A description of uninhabitable wilderness was given where in the US people ‘exist’ on bottled water delivered by the oil companies who make no apology.

Peak Oil he said, was a myth designed to artificially inflate fuel prices, the world apparently is nowhere near running out of oil and he would not debate climate change with anyone until they had read The Climategate Emails by John Costella.

He went on to describe how the tentacles of Global Governance are seeking to control every aspect of our lives while our attention is diverted by ‘Entertainment’ and dumbed down by fluoride and all manner of other substances designed restrict our perception to a narrow physical sense reality.

Governments are mere pawns held in contempt by the corporations they have sold their souls to, which explains why we are on our own when it comes to CSG .

It’s wake-up time.
