Coal Seam Gas has the potential to destroy soil and poison our water supply. Despite these high stakes - CSG mining has been expanding at a growing speed across NSW.
It’s clear to residents, farmers and local communities that we need to put the brakes on CSG. But Mike Baird and the NSW Liberals disagree - and are encouraging large scale CSG exploration in key regions across the state.
"Do we want Coal Seam Gas? Absolutely we do." - Premier Mike Baird, Daily Telegraph, 8 November 2014
We know that Mike Baird unequivocally supports Coal Seam Gas, but NSW Labor has a plan to ensure that Coal Seam Gas development is done in a sustainable manner, which includes a total ban on Coal Seam Gas in the Northern Rivers.
We need to step back from Mike Baird’s unequivocal support of Coal Seam Gas. Labor will institute a state-wide moratorium on Coal Seam Gas activity in NSW and a total and permanent ban on Coal Seam Gas mining in the Northern Rivers of NSW.
