  • The only advise Hazzard and the government are taking are the one's bought and paid for by the Mining and CSG industry. A independent report would properly show a very different take on the matter, but independent reports never see the light of day!

  • The risk factor is huge with this industry, Brad Hazzard and co are trying to sell mining in our water supplies and our food bowls on the scientific advice of mining companies.
    Our children will inherit gas fields to live in, up here in the Northern Rivers we have been told drinking the waste water could be an option to dispose of it after its been treated, cheers.

  • Apex Energy are looking to explore for CSG in Sydney's drinking water catchments. They say they will be able to supply Sydney with 30% of its gas needs. Should we be doing this where we get 100% of our drinking water?

  • O'Farrell's main problem, apart from his personal cow-towing and abject indecision, is he is being advised by the same disgraced, incompetent bureaucrats that advised Carr and his long line of replacement 'Premiers' over the past 16 years. A band of knuckleheads indeed.
