Islandmagee : co- financed by the EU

Share Button

IM fundingIf the Islandmagee gas storage project is co-financed by the EU, does that mean that

Infrastrata et al. might have difficulty in continuing with the project? From Infrastrata’s website it looks like they are expecting more EU funding to complete the project. Anyone know? Or any idea where we can find this info out?

The European Parliament calls for a ban on new fracking projects in the EU

eu voteMore information about the specific vote that was asked for the paragraph on fracking: 347 MEPs supported the paragraph, 298 rejected it and 49 abstained.
If you’re interested, you can find the details of who MEPs voted what here, on page 28: http://www.europarl.europa.eu/sides/getDoc.do?pubRef=-%2f%2fEP%2f%2fNONSGML%2bPV%2b20160202%2bRES-RCV%2bDOC%2bPDF%2bV0%2f%2fEN&language=EN

Interestingly, compared to the previous parliament, we can observe that now:
– The socialist party is unanimously opposed to fracking and votes accordingly
– The Italian Five Stars MEPs bring a lot of precious votes from the other side of the political spectrum
– A good dozen of conservative (EPP) MEPs, about one half of the liberal (ALDE) MEPs support our position
– No matter how much I hate to say it, the newly created racist and eurosceptic group (called Europe of Nations and Freedom, or “ENF”), notably composed of members of the French Front National, supported the fracking paragraph.

Dear all,

You may remember the big fuss FoEE made several months when we decided to leave the expert group on fracking that had just been established by the European Commission because of the over-representation and unacceptable influence of the industry.
