FEDERAL GOVERNMENT BETRAYS QUEENSLAND: There are still many people in NSW who do not know what coal seam gas methane (CSG) industry is and what it can do to their homes, to their health. to their farms and to their lifestyle. Let us read a letter from Brian Monk who actually already lives in a GASFIELD and it is not in America, it is right here in Australia - in sunny Queensland. Our reactions to this letter and to the betrayal by the Federal Government are given in Gas Watch 96.

Hi All,

Well you have no doubt heard, the projects up here in Qld have been given the go ahead, what a betrayal.

Big selling point Qld and NSW have the gas to power a city of 1 million people for 5,000 years, there are about 2.5 billion people in China and India where the gas is going, is my maths correct, thats 2 years, good world solution to the energy crissis.

Next point is it will improve Qld gross state product by 1%, so in 100 years it will have given what Qld was producing in one year. But post CSG, what will Qld's product equal?????

Also this is likened to the Snowy Mountain Project, oh, what is that you say, the Snoweys is sustainable even with all it's problems, that seems to be a different concept.

Another point, CSG has been plagued with toxin issues, not just here, but all over the world, so why do we niavely think they have it right in Australia??? Of course they haven't, it isn't safe and world wide evidence
proves that.

You know the amazing thing is, my son recieved a letter from BG (QGC) stating they are initiating negotiations with him re the infrastructure, letter dated around a week ago, they obviously used a crystal ball..... This letter allows a month before negotiations are enforced, 4 months after this if negotiations are unsuccessful the matter is reffered to the Coordinator General and involuntary acquisition will occur. Got to love our democratic system.

Anyway, well done yesterday, I hope it pushes them away from you, would be nice to have a non-industrialised rural environment to visit. If you can succeed it will be due to you standing united, NOW, later all will be lost.
John is right, the gas field is coming to you and it will not take long, it has consumed us, we will kick and struggle and become criminals defending our beliefs, but we are defeated by the governments that should be protecting our clean air and water. Once the millions developing the industry turn to billions you will not stop it. NOW is your chance, we missed ours.

Best wishes for your fight,
Brian Monk
