Gasfield Free Byron Bay & Northern Rivers

Carrying on the activism from the huge community project of resisting the government backed mining insanity at Bentley NSW in 2015. This page includes posts from 2 FB pages: CSG Free Byron Bay & CSG Free Northern Rivers. – – – The aim of the Gasfield Free Northern Rivers movement is to protect the biodiversity, water resources, agricultural lands and sustainable industries of the Northern Rivers, and the livelihoods and wellbeing of the people who live here, from the impacts of coal seam gas (CSG) and other forms of unconventional gas mining. Our objective is to have the Northern Rivers region declared a CSG and unconventional gas free zone, and for all current licenses and leases that allow such activities to be revoked.

I understand that you dont want gas and coal fields in the northern rivers. We as a country still need coal power and gas as renewable energy cannot supply the country's power needs at this time. As you dont want any of these industry's in your backyard, whose backyard do you suggest that these industry's operate in?

The Public Group
What Are The Dangers Of Hydraulic Fracturing?

Each gas well requires about 400 tanker trucks to carry water and supplies to and from the site, something that isn’t always calculated into environmental impact studies.
The amount of silica that is used in the fracking process requires workers to wear personalized protective equipment to prevent the development of silicosis.
It may take up to 8 million gallons of water to complete just one well through hydraulic fracturing.
Even though chemicals and additives account for just 0.5% of the fracking solution, this means up to 40,000 gallons of chemicals are used in a well.
Although guar is a main additive in fracking, knowing toxins and carcinogens are also added, including lead, mercury, and radium.
A well can be fracked up to 18 times, with each time requiring the up to 8 million gallons of water.
The end result is that hydraulic fracturing may require up to 360 billion gallons of chemicals to be used for well maintenance.

As Adani prepares to start his monstrous mine, we are planning a Stop Adani convoy, travelling from Tasmania to Queensland, joined by people along the way prepared to peacefully obstruct this obscene project.

We need to raise $40,000 to facilitate the convoy and public meetings in major cities along the route.

Not everyone will be able to join the convoy. But everyone can chip in to make it happen. Your tax-deductible donation, large or small, will help this epic protest become a reality. Donate now at www.bobbrown.org.au/18_11_convoy

Metgasco seismic testing at Casino Channel 7 report. 

(recorded from TV because not streamed online sorry)

Henderson likens seismic testing to ultrasound in a maternity ward.

How very warm and fuzzy of Mr Henderson. 

Pity the analogy doesn't hold up for the toxic water and gases that come out of a coal seam gas well!
