Please sign this petition requesting a Moratorium on CSG exploration and mining. I would like to add to the petition that the Report (when completed) be independently peer reviewed, as many of the experts on the Committee are not ‘independent’ at all, but receive their funding from the govt. or the mining industry.
There should be an immediate halt to the destruction of our aquifers and farming land, at least until they do some studies and get the science right.
The petition reads:
“To the honorable Tony Burke Minster for water:
We the undersigned request that the minister halt all Coal Seam gas exploration and mining until such time that the Interim committee to advise on coal seam gas and large coal mining has reported on it’s findings and the report is tabled in the federal parliament and debated in both houses of the federal parliament.
After which the report is publicly distributed via several media and public comment and submissions are fully considered.
