What Australians Don't know About CSG

Saturday, 26th October 2013 (all day)

This event is in the past.

The Australia Institutes latest research into the Coal Seam Gas (or 'natural gas from coal seams' in NSW)  'industry.
Conclusion
The gas industry has chosen almost completely to ignore the public’s concerns about CSG.
When it has engaged with the public’s concerns it has simply dismissed them without
supplying any real evidence. If the public’s concerns are as unfounded as the industry has
claimed then it is very surprising that it has made no real effort to produce evidence that
shows this to be the case. When the industry has engaged with the public it has chosen to
highlight and at times exaggerate potential economic benefits.
The industry’s strategy has not been particularly effective. The industry’s unwillingness or
inability to deal with the public’s concerns has led to large restrictions on CSG extraction,
particularly in NSW. Despite the failure of its strategy, the industry continues to avoid
engaging with people’s concerns. It seems unwilling or unable to refute environmental
concerns that have been raised about CSG.
