Seems all these countries who want a carbon tax to make the eviroment a clean and green one have missed the message that they themselves are spouting.....all for the almighty dollar.....instead of trying to look for more and more ways to get money.....maybe they should try and budget on what they do have?....

I agree 100% with your post. The environmental and human coast of fracking / coal seam gas will be telling. It's disgraceful that Australians are hit with the corrupt carbon tax, all the while the 'green' push is going up in flames.

The solar industry is dying; the desalination plant in Sydney has pushed up water prices DESPITE dams being at a record high, electricity infrastructure is old and not being regenerated despite the continuing massive hikes in electricity.

The real heinous crime of csg is that not one averge member of the Australian public has NO LEGAL right to refuse entry to a multinational CSG company to explore and mine on private land.
HUGE tracts of land in NSW and QLD are under exploration license. I only hope that the companies make the unpopular mistake of putting them near Sydney or another high density population so that people will rise out of their apathy and start objecting.

Will be telling?

We've had CSG wells in and around Roma for a good 15 - 20 years now, now gas in our water, no poisons, no sinking ground, no dying land, people watch gas land and think they're all experts on something which they know nothing about.

Before we started sucking oil out of the ground it used to lay all over the ground. Point is: Somebody is always whining about something. Just shut the frack up and start drilling.

If it's not with 100km of productive farmland frack away.

If its under private property pay compensation
If its under public land pay royalties

If it needs public money frack off
