AGL seem to be drilling a new well, or re-fracking an old coal seam gas well at the edge of Sydney on 17 May 2011. The site is less than a kilometre from houses at Glen Alpine. At one stage foam started spewing from a pipe under pressure. It later became more liquid and the spray drifted toward houses. Does anyone know what it happening here? If so, email [email protected]

From Sydney's water supply catchment to the rich agricultural lands of the Liverpool Plains and the Darling Downs, the coal seam gas industry is expanding at breakneck speed. People's health is under threat, our nation's farmland being eroded away and the country's precious aquifers permanently damaged. Locals like Leslie McQueen, James Bishop, Lee McNicholl, Tony Pickard, Rosemary Nankivell, Katie and Scott Lloyd are doing everything they can to spread the word about the dangers of coal seam gas (CSG) mining. Debbi Orr, a GetUp member from Tara QLD, even drove 5 hours down to NSW to tell a community meeting what coal seam gas is doing to her kids' health.

Drew Hutton from Lock The Gate takes us on a tour of coal seam gas mining (fracking) in Tara Queensland
Views: 3479 inyourfacescreen
'Lock the Gate' was inspired by the film Gaslands, which addresses the issues surrounding coal gas mining in America. 'Lock the Gate' is a brief look at part of the Queensland (Australia) situation - centered around Kingaroy, Dalby and Tara. Ian & Arkin Mackay hit the road for a three day drive to check it out... what unfolded was the realisation that coal gas mining is alive and thriving in the state... and so is an active protest movement. Veteran activist and environmental rights crusader, Drew Hutton has predicted that stopping Coal Gas mining will be "the biggest environmental campaign in Australian history"... and all indicators are that he's correct!

Food security is vital for future generations of Australians and the world. Some of the most productive agricultural areas in Australia are across the Darling Downs of SE Queensland and the Liverpool Plains of northern NSW. In this interview Dr Standley shows an area of agricultural land in the area proposed for a coal mining venture and then contrasts this with the scene of a coal mine not far away. Dr Standley then describes why the soils are so productive. He emphasizes how easily they could be ruined if they were dug up and the sub soil replaced the topsoil. Dr Standley addresses the prolem of salinity. Finally he emphasizes the problems for farmers created by networks of coal seam gas pipes. Gasland Darling Downs Question Mark is a project conceived by local artist Ben Beeton www.benbeeton.com.au www.getabstractwallart.com In 2010 Ben saw a screening of the film Gasland and was horrified to realize that the environmental destruction which had happened in America, through coal mining and coal seam gas projects was now happening on the Darling Downs. In these films Ben invites scientists and local experts to share their knowledge and concerns about the very serious threat of environmental mismanagement that is facing the Darling Downs and beyond. Ben would like to thank Don Herman of Darling Downs Movie Makers Inc, Dr John Standley and the owners of www.sodd.com.au for supporting this project at its foundation stage of development. Ben's primary interest is in creating multi-media work about the ecology, geology and deep time history of environment. Although frequently away on artist residency/tour projects Ben thinks of Toowoomba and the Darling Downs region as his home. In 2010 Ben was the artist for the Burke and Wills Environmental Expedition. www.cv.vic.gov.au/stories/burke-and-wills-the-art-of-science. Ben felt that the most effective contribution that he could make was to provide people with a scientifically informed perspective of the situation. It is Ben's hope that once equipped with this information individuals will become proactive in advocating for a moratorium on mining until a comprehensive independent scientific assessment of its long term effects on the Darling Downs and other effected regions has been conducted. The project Gasland Darling Downs Question Mark has been given a page on the save our Darling Downs website www.sodd.com.au. Ben has a range of films on You Tube including "Gondwana in Toowoomba, an exploration of Toowoomba's remnant rainforest and geology with Dr Gillian Scott and Ben Beeton", "In the Suburban desert with Peter Macqueen and Ben Beeton", The Hampton Corridor of Trees with Peter Macqueen and Ben Beeton", "On Sugarloaf Mountain with Peter Macqueen, Dr Gillian Scott and Ben Beeton", "Exploring the Helidon Hills with Peter Macqueen and Ben Beeton" and "Burke and Wills Environmental Expedition".

About 400 people, mostly local residents, rallied on December 19 at Sydney Park in inner-Sydney St Peters to protest plans by the NSW government to allow exploratory drilling for coal seam mining gas in this suburb. It's another case of Labor & Liberal parties putting corporate profit before community needs.

This is a factual documentary showing how Fracking for CSG is destroying our country in so many ways. I am by no way a green person, I am a capitalist (if that's the right way to put it), but this is government corruption at its worst in Australia. Australia will be destroyed and will literally become a gas mine field. The CSG companies will come to your town, your neighborhood. Your water will be unfit for household use. This will be much worse than asbestos! A shocking, must watch documentary.

And no I'm not a mad Greeny. Just don't want our drinking water poisoned (As it has been in some areas of NSW and QLD from the mining process called Fracking) from Coal seam gas mining. While CSG miners take gigalitres of water FREE, YES FREE our farmers who feed us pay through the nose. They say we need this gas etc but they don't tell you the gas is exported to China and other countries while they leave a toxic mess in NSW and QLD prime farm land generations old. Mining YES but not on our productive farms and drinking water. Email Barry O'Farrell [email protected] and Campbell Newman [email protected] and tell them NO CSG mining in our farms and drinking water. We don't want to see our food growing capability destroyed, increase our food costs and totally import inferior somewhat poisonous food from China. We can change the future, we just need to empower ourselves and tell our servants in parliament what we want. Do it for your kids.

A coal seam gas well drilled by AGL (MP25) only 40 metres from the Nepean River was inundated by a minor flood. Most of the well pad was underwater. The waste water/drilling pit was totally submerged and presumably anything in the pit went into the river. Bubbles could be seen rapidly bubbling to the surface in various spots. Is this methane escaping into the atmosphere due to drilling or fracking or depressurisation of the coal seam? Coal seam gas should be prohibited in urban areas and in water catchments. Filmed by the Greens.

Jeremy Buckingham onsite at a leaking coal seam gas well in Western Sydney - 31 August 2014 MEDIA RELEASE – 31 August 2014 The Greens NSW spokesperson on coal seam gas Jeremy Buckingham today called on the NSW Government to immediately suspend all coal seam gas activity and initiate an independent investigation into why there was a major gas leak from an AGL coal seam gas well only 200 metres from homes at Spring Farm, near Campbelltown. “This afternoon terrified residents at Spring Farm, near Campbelltown reported a loud hissing from a coal seam gas well and were concerned gas could be smelt in their houses. An AGL coal seam gas well is located only 200 metres from homes at Spring Farm,” Greens MP Jeremy Buckingham said. “I arrived at the area to find the fire brigade and Jemena gas workers in attendance, but no AGL personnel, and to witness loud hissing from the gas well. The fire brigade has formed a cordon around the area and families from nearby homes are out in the street very concerned about their safety and what’s going on. “I have spoken to a number of the residents who are very distressed. They are worried about their health and safety, especially as many of the residents are families with small children, but are concerned about speaking about the issue because of the implications this may have for their property values. “This is yet another piece of evidence that coal seam gas extraction is unsafe. Is Premier Mike Baird happy to continue to allow coal seam gas wells to be located near to homes, either in Western Sydney or in Gloucester? “The NSW Government needs to act immediately to suspend all coal seam gas operations and approvals in NSW and conduct a thorough, independent investigation of this incident,” Mr Buckingham said.

Brian Monk and his family became coal seam gas refugees after csg mining companies turned his 5000 acre farm into a toxic wasteland threatening not just their livelihood but their very lives. Speaking from the heart at the Lismore and Kyogle National Day of Action Against CSG Rally's, Brian issues a stern warning to Northern Rivers residents and the rest of the Australian population - Lock the Gate, stand up with your neighbours and fight this CSG madness BEFORE it destroys our food, our water, our health, our communities and everything we hold dear in this country. As Alan Jones states, mining companies are now running governments at all levels in this country so stopping this CSG madness is clearly a peoples issue. And if we dont act NOW, Brian's fate may present a frightening window to our future. This is a battle we did not ask for but one we can not afford to lose.
