ImageWednesday, 8-April-2009. Gas Watch 67.AGL ENERGY! “METHANE GAS COULD KILL THE HUNTER VALLEY!”
On 6th and 7th April we had a couple of people outside AGL Energy Headquarters at 101 Miller Street, North Sydney. They were there for a couple of hours as the employees arrived, and for a couple of hours at lunch time each day. One with signs and handing out pamphlets. The other as the Grim Reaper, which is how we see AGL ENERGY in respect of its actions at Broke in regard to the water tables and in relation to the risk of methane gas explosion and migration. We intend to make random appearances at the AGL ENERGY offices (

The grim reaper is alive and well, representing AGL ENERGY's fossil fuel branch, and could appear at an AGL Branch near you at any time.

HVPA Link:
Grim Reaper is personification of death and is a common image since dark Middle Ages. Many people in the Central Europe believed that, beside death, it is also a sign of an uninvited evil. Frightened peasants from little villages believed that they had seen strange apparitions in the fields at night just before a war, pestilence (plague) or famine started. They had seen one or several black ghosts with scythes cutting their crops just before the harvest. Grim Reaper, as a symbol of rampant evil and death, is widely reflected in European paintings and literature.


In our view AGL Energy is just like that . They come into our tranquil valley uninvited, start exploring for coal seam gas methane, do not reveal anything about their ultimate plans and pretend that all is fine. We look around the world, we look what is happening in Queensland and we see a big environmental and social disaster in the making. We see the Grim Reaper creeping into our peaceful river valley. AGL should believing in their own propaganda, stop paying spin doctors and start telling the truth. That is why we send them Grim Reaper from time to time - to remind them that all their green,clean gas talk is a pure fossilized hypocrisy.
