SUBMISSION-WRITING SESSION - Mullum Community Gardens, Stuart Street - Sat 1st Dec 2pm.


I object to gas exploration ANYWHERE on this planet. I live in
Mullumbimby, but I do not have the attitude Not in my backyard'. This form of mining
is devastating. Anywhere.Also, people thinking of buying (and using) gas cookers and
hot water systems, think again. Obviously, renewable energy will be supplied as
electricity. I bought an induction stove and have not experienced an increase in my
electricity usage - thanks to my cook top, lack of appliances, solar hot water
system and solar panels. (Note: I did not have a stove for three years before I
bought my induction stove).
