Dr. Colborn is a great speaker. She explains in simple terms the technology of gas extraction industry as well the associated environmental and health problems. Associated images show what it is like to live in a gas field and these pictures are not pretty. What already happened in America can happen here in Australia too, if we let it happen. What can we do against such powerful industrial forces? Perhaps we can start by making sure that everyone who lives in an area under a gas exploration lease watches this video.
