FRACKING GAS- last day for submission

Newsletter 92


LAST DAY TO SUBMIT OBJECTION TO LOCAL GAS FRACKING
Submissions close Friday 15th April.


PLEASE SEND URGENT MESSAGE to Department of Planning Sydney

Email: coalandgasstrategy@planning.nsw.gov.au

Example: I urge you in the strongest possible terms
to support a moratorium on gas coal seam mining generally,
and the process of fracking in particular.
Fracking causes untold damage to the environment
and especially the water table.
***********************************************

Please go to http://www.lockthegate.org for information, sample letters, documents, fact sheets, data, and information about ongoing blockade at Tara, Queensland.

The film "Gasland" (check out http://www.gasland.com.au/trailer ) outlined the horrors, repeat horrors, of fracking such as being able to ignite the liquid that comes from kitchen taps. It could happen here too – even Byron is earmarked (see http://echo.net.au/node/81470 for map of potential fracks.) Rumour has it that Chinese energy companies are involved.

This is a quote from email from Irene which was forwarded to me:
The gas pipeline is going along a major part of Lyons Road - anywhere there is a gas pipeline they can drill without any further permission. drilling is underway in casino, kyogle, the channon - I saw on the news a few weeks ago that there's already a drill site leaking methane in mullumbimby, there's word that tyalgum property owners are being approached and I think we all know the shocking situation in s.e. qld.


MORE NEWS SOON.
