Fracking explained: opportunity or danger
 
05:04
Fracking explained in five minutes. Fracking is a controversial topic. On the one side the gas drilling companies, on the other citizen opposed to this drilling method. Politicians are also divided on the matter. We try to take a neutral look on fracking. It is relevant for all of us, because of high prices for energy and the danger for our drinking water. This video focuses mostly on the debate currently ongoing in europe. In a lot of european countries there is a public outcry against fracking, espacially in germany. But the facts in this video are relevant to all of us. Short videos, explaining things. For example Evolution, the Universe, Stock Market or controversial topics like Fracking. Because we love science. We would love to interact more with you, our viewers to figure out what topics you want to see.

Lock The Gate - the coal seam gas mining situation in Queensland
 
14:48
'Lock the Gate' was inspired by the film Gaslands, which addresses the issues surrounding coal gas mining in America. 'Lock the Gate' is a brief look at part of the Queensland (Australia) situation - centered around Kingaroy, Dalby and Tara. Ian & Arkin Mackay hit the road for a three day drive to check it out... what unfolded was the realisation that coal gas mining is alive and thriving in the state... and so is an active protest movement. Veteran activist and environmental rights crusader, Drew Hutton has predicted that stopping Coal Gas mining will be "the biggest environmental campaign in Australian history"... and all indicators are that he's correct!

CSG Documentary Trailer
 
04:34
The case against Coal Seam Gas Mining needs to be made directly to the state government. CSG extraction is NOT the clean green industry that has been widely publicised. It WILL put our environment, community and livelihoods at risk. This industry has permission under the petroleum act to extract unlimited quantities of ground water. This water extracted contains large quantities of salt, under production up to 2,000,000 tonnes of salt per annum will threaten the very existence of the Murray Darling River System. Extracting this quantity of water from the Great Artesian Basin has irreversible consequences, let alone the issues of Coal Seam Gas impeding on local water supplies. This documentary trailer gives a glimpse of the potential environmental, and community concerns. To voice your concerns, the appropriate contact addresses for relevant ministers and politicians are at the end of the trailer.

Some of the most productive agricultural areas in Australia are across the Darling Downs of SE Queensland and the Liverpool Plains of northern NSW. In this interview Dr Standley shows an area of agricultural land in the area proposed for a coal mining venture and then contrasts this with the scene of a coal mine not far away. Dr Standley then describes why the soils are so productive. He emphasizes how easily they could be ruined if they were dug up and the sub soil replaced the topsoil. Dr Standley addresses the prolem of salinity. Finally he emphasizes the problems for farmers created by networks of coal seam gas pipes. Gasland Darling Downs Question Mark is a project conceived by local artist Ben Beeton www.benbeeton.com.au www.getabstractwallart.com In 2010 Ben saw a screening of the film Gasland and was horrified to realize that the environmental destruction which had happened in America, through coal mining and coal seam gas projects was now happening on the Darling Downs. In these films Ben invites scientists and local experts to share their knowledge and concerns about the very serious threat of environmental mismanagement that is facing the Darling Downs and beyond. Ben would like to thank Don Herman of Darling Downs Movie Makers Inc, Dr John Standley and the owners of www.sodd.com.au for supporting this project at its foundation stage of development. Ben's primary interest is in creating multi-media work about the ecology, geology and deep time history of environment.

Coal Seam Gas - The Fight For Our Lives - Spread Virally
 
03:03
Coal seam gas mining (CSG) is developing rapidly in New South Wales and Queensland and is commencing in other states. The legal and administrative protections are inadequate to ensure that public health is not harmed and that environmental damage does not leave a legacy for generations. The public health responsibilities of state and federal governments are to prevent harm by careful scientific assessment of possible hazards, their risks and methods of prevention. Therefore they deal particularly with clean air, clean water and uncontaminated food. Industry and state governments have frequently reassured the public that there are no dangers from CSG to water supplies and to their health. But what is their evidence? Overseas health concerns are emerging. A ban on shale gas mining in France and moratoriums in parts of the USA and South Africa are recent developments. The United States Environmental Protection Authority has begun a comprehensive study to investigate the potential adverse impacts that hydraulic fracturing may have on water quality and public health. There are differences between shale gas mining -- the predominant process overseas, particularly in the US -- and coal seam gas mining in Australia, in the depth of drilling and the volume of water brought to the surface, but there are health impacts common to both: the potential for contamination of water for drinking and agricultural use and for air pollution around wells. Hydraulic fracturing (fracking), often used in the mining process, involves the pressurised injection of a large volume of water, as well as chemical additives, into rock. The large volume of saline water returning to the surface contains injected contaminants and those leached from rocks and sediments. Nearby aquifers, ground water, soil and air may be contaminated. Some chemicals used in mining or leached from underground into water have the potential to harm human health given sufficient dose and duration of exposure, and this potential harm includes increased risks of cancer and other serious long-term outcomes. In a recent submission to the Senate Inquiry into Management of the Murray Darling Basin and the impact of CSG mining operations, Doctors for the Environment Australia has highlighted these concerns, recommending application of the precautionary principle, putting in place protections until sufficient research can be undertaken to adequately document health risks. Food quality and security is essential for good health. Agriculture, already under threat from more severe and prolonged drought conditions associated with climate change, will be further compromised by the CSG industry. As the industry expands, the vast quantities of water diverted from agricultural use to CSG operations and the loss of productive cropland may well diminish Australia's ability to feed itself and the world. Water and air pollution, water shortages, permanent degradation of productive agricultural land and loss of livelihood and landscape, all have mental health consequences for communities living in a gas field. The CSG process can divide previously close-knit rural communities, increasing tension and disharmony, impact on local economies, and threaten other industries such as tourism. But climate change is also an important health issue, and the carbon footprint of CSG over coal is said to be lower. Does this override other considerations? Not at all. Proper monitoring of fugitive emissions is needed to enable accurate comparisons with coal. The International Energy Agency has warned that there is a danger that over reliance on CSG will delay the vital transition to renewable energy. What needs to be done to protect human health? In any new development, health should be an integral part of the assessment process. State Departments of Health should have had a major role on the safety of a CSG development via a health risk assessment process. This is not currently happening in each state, and logically there should be one best practice national process. Adequate information is needed to support risk assessment and health protection and this is largely lacking. Greater transparency of industry practices and improved monitoring would start to fill this gap. There is a strong case for an independent, national Health Impact Assessment process, providing a uniform regulatory framework for the industry in all states and territories. While these protections are being developed, the precautionary principle should be exercised to recognise potential harms and err on the side of caution with any new CSG development. Human health relies on the maintenance of a healthy environment, clean drinking water, secure food production, the cohesion of community and family life. The new gold rush represented by coal seam mining should not be allowed to endanger these basic health needs of Australians.

Coal Seam Gas: Economic Boom or Environmental Bust?
 
01:26:36
Economic bonanza or environmental disaster? This was the debate for this panel discussion on coam seam gas at the Noosa Longweekend Festival this year. It is and will continue to be a highly divisive and contentious issue, especially on the prime agricultural land that have been targeted for drilling. Proponents promise high growth; that the process and extraction is very carbon friendly; that there will be big jobs growth, and there's the big lure of billions of dollars in taxes. But what are the risks? How much do we really know about the science of coal seam extraction? What's the impact on ground water systems as the rapidly expanding industry promotes 40,000 coal seam gas wells over the next 30 years? A big selling point for the CSG industry is the promise of a decrease in carbon emissions and huge export income. But the biggest concern, both sides agreed, is the issue of water contamination. This expert panel takes on board these contentious issues; but there is a fair bit of ducking and weaving when it comes to rock solid evidence -- on either side. Panellists are Independent Federal MP, Tony Windsor, Rick Wilkinson from the Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association; Paul Cleary, journalist with The Australian and author of Too Much Luck: the Mining Boom and the Future for Australia and Tony Wood -- Energy Program Director at the Grattan Institute.

Coal Seam Gas: Great Artesian Basin impacts
 
01:47
Ian Hayllor of the Basin Sustainability Alliance spoke at the recent Property Rights Australia conference in Roma in June 2011. These are excerpts from his presentation. The Queensland Party is calling for a moratorium on this industry: Queensland Party Leader, Aidan McLindon, has increased pressure on the Queensland Government to act and impose a moratorium on coal seam gas operations until the full health and environmental impacts of the process are known. "The one thing the Labor Party keeps telling us is that we need to keep up with the rest of the world on environmental protection. Well, the rest of the world is halting coal seam gas mining. New York State has just extended its moratorium and mining operations in England have been stopped due to concerns that the underground fracking process is causing earthquakes," said Mr McLindon. "This follows action by France and South Africa to also end this form of mining." "Yet in Queensland, the Bligh Government has actually eased environmental standards and is allowing companies, such as British Gas, to have free reign on Queensland's farming land and private properties when its own country is tightening provisions."

Seams Fishy, Visual Strategies 2011
 
04:42
Griffith University, Visual Strategies students conquer the crazy cardboard weekend workshop to create 'Seams Fishy'. This larger than life fish comments on the environmental dangers of using coal seam gas mining as a new energy resource. The Australian Governments latest fight for environmental justice is against the Coal Seam Gas (CSG) Mining Industry. CSG mining is a toxic process whereby hydraulic fracturing (fraccing) occurs. Chemical brine and 260 other chemicals build the fraccing fluid which is injected deep underground posing pressure to the coal, releasing natural gas. These natural gases are in increasing demand as an energy resource for Queensland, Australia, however the production of these natural gases endanger our planet. It is argued that CSG Mining will reduce green house gases as coal mining currently produces 2.4 tonne of green house gases for every tonne mined. However high levels are still emitted through fraccing due to large petrol reliant, mining machinery and the subsequent transportation of the mined gas. Though the biggest concern is CSG mining's effects on the land and it's ecosystems. The toxic fraccing fluid that is pumped into the Earth contaminating ground water with deadly chemicals like Benzene and Cadium (which are linked to cancer, nervous and respiratory diseases and birth defects). These chemicals run through waterways causing great concern for all surrounding ecosystems. CSG mining is a danger to all life. Seams Fishy comments on the dangers of CSG mining and the work environmental planners, scientists and researchers will face now and profoundly in the coming future. The larger than life cardboard fish represents the waterways and its ecosystems that are will face death if CSG mining continues. The fish is wearing a gas mask to represent it's impending toxic life and death. The fish is covered in scales to show it's natural beauty. Each scale is different representing the 'individual fish'. It's delicacy of shape and pattern enforces the shame it would be to kill even one fish. CSG mining will murder whole schools and ecosystems of fish. The tail and fins are delicately made with layers of detail giving the viewer a sense that the fish needs to be handled carefully as it is easily broken. The gas mask covers the fish's whole face shocking viewers at the toxicity of the issues of CSG mining. The smooth curves of the waves represent the waterways. Clean waterways give communities life. Not only through drinking and farming water, but through activities, sports and promoting healthy lifestyles. Australian Federal Government Laws require the Government to protect ecosystems reliant on groundwater networks. CSG Mining in Queensland is currently at a halt by the demands of Australia's environmental minister Peter Garret. Further research into water quality, water consumption and other resource demands are currently underway. Seams Fishy is site specific to Griffith University's G31 Arts and Education building as Environmental Planning, Science and Research studies and courses are conducted. Seams Fishy will raise an awareness of the future dangers and pollution of Coal Seam Gas Mining.

Coonamble Community Rallies against Coal Seam Gas
 
02:34
A community used to fighting drought, is in its biggest battle yet. This time with Big Mining Companies and the NSW government to protect its most vital resource - water. Over 500 landholders, farmers, families and long-time residents from across Coonamble Shire in northwest NSW, came together this past Saturday in the town of Coonamble, to raise awareness of the major environmental effects coal seam gas (CSG) exploration, taking place in the region by mining giant Santos, can have on the community. CSG is a dangerous mining tactic that could pollute, deplete and contaminate the Great Artesian Basin, the only reliable source of fresh water throughout much of inland Australia that supplies residents, many of whom run working farms, with clean drinking water. The organizing committee went door-to-door to survey landholders and residents across over one million hectares and found an overwhelming consensus. Over 96% of those surveyed voted against coal seam gas mines due to the the damaging effects it could have to the area's water table. Mining companies worldwide have always claimed minimal potential damage to water supplies and natural aquifers. However, recently it was revealed that water leakage from a Santos water storage pond contaminated an aquifer in nearby Pilliga with uranium, at 20x over the recommended safe drinking water level. Also, recently Deputy Premier Andrew Stoner signed a "memorandum of understanding" with the company to accelerate the Pilliga project, guaranteeing a decision on its future by January 23 2015, next year. This has become a major issues and over 200 communities across New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland have declared themselves, "gas field free."The time for these local residents to garner support and stop the massive lobbying machine companies like Santos and others have over the local community needs is now.

Coal Seam Gas Alan Jones Smashes Jamie Briggs

Alan Jones: “The picture you saw is correct, and in my opinion an absolute disgrace. And the bigger disgrace is that the government has done nothing. And that (Mining) is replicated all over Australia. Nine mines on the Galilee Basin in QLD, will use more than 2 ½ times Sydney Harbours water in one year, will de-water 400 bores which are used for farms and irrigation and will remove the water entitlement of two towns. It will take 9 Billion Litres from the Great Artesian Basin in a year, that’s a litre for every person on the planet It will reduce the Aquifer by 47 metres, 47 metres! The argument (for land and water destruction) being is, “well everyone’s in debt, mining will get us out of trouble.” Well it didn’t get Campbell Newman out of trouble; the mining invasion didn’t produce jobs. He promised unemployment at 4%, it’s at 6%, he promised to reduce the debt; the debt’s gone up. Mining hasn’t solved the problem; Australia-wide there are only about 240,000 jobs in mining, and fly in and fly out. The picture you saw there is all over Australia. This stuff (mining) lasts for 15 years and then you’ve got an Industrial Wasteland. The notion of coexistence is a nonsense, and that’s only prospered by those who are the proponents. And where there are “Environmental Impact Statements”, can you believe it, they are written by the proponent. At Cecil Plains the Arrow Energy Coal Seam Gas Environmental Impact Statement weighed 27 Kilograms and the farmers were given a month to respond. Five Million Acres the argument was, there’s going to be 40,000 Coal Seam Gas wells on the Darling Downs, and this one Project, Arrow Energy, would use 22 Billion Litres of water per year. This stuff has got to stop. Neither government has done anything about it, but however let’s be honest, the Labor party is not in government, it’s not their responsibility now Jamie. This is really hardnosed stuff (cut to Jamie Briggs with a filthy smirk on his face) and the buck rests in Canberra. Jamie Briggs: “It is a State Government issue ultimately, but “ (Jones interrupts) Jones: “Sorry Jamie, no, no, no ,no, no. The Federal government has to sign off on it. It’s not a State issue, they can go mad, but you can stop them going mad!”

Coal Seam Gas - The Fight For Our Lives - Spread Virally
 
03:03
IF this video keeps freezing up on you, try this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yl35lXbKlSY Coal seam gas mining (CSG) is developing rapidly in New South Wales and Queensland and is commencing in other states. The legal and administrative protections are inadequate to ensure that public health is not harmed and that environmental damage does not leave a legacy for generations. The public health responsibilities of state and federal governments are to prevent harm by careful scientific assessment of possible hazards, their risks and methods of prevention. Therefore they deal particularly with clean air, clean water and uncontaminated food. Industry and state governments have frequently reassured the public that there are no dangers from CSG to water supplies and to their health. But what is their evidence? Overseas health concerns are emerging. A ban on shale gas mining in France and moratoriums in parts of the USA and South Africa are recent developments. The United States Environmental Protection Authority has begun a comprehensive study to investigate the potential adverse impacts that hydraulic fracturing may have on water quality and public health. There are differences between shale gas mining -- the predominant process overseas, particularly in the US -- and coal seam gas mining in Australia, in the depth of drilling and the volume of water brought to the surface, but there are health impacts common to both: the potential for contamination of water for drinking and agricultural use and for air pollution around wells. Hydraulic fracturing (fracking), often used in the mining process, involves the pressurised injection of a large volume of water, as well as chemical additives, into rock. The large volume of saline water returning to the surface contains injected contaminants and those leached from rocks and sediments. Nearby aquifers, ground water, soil and air may be contaminated. Some chemicals used in mining or leached from underground into water have the potential to harm human health given sufficient dose and duration of exposure, and this potential harm includes increased risks of cancer and other serious long-term outcomes. In a recent submission to the Senate Inquiry into Management of the Murray Darling Basin and the impact of CSG mining operations, Doctors for the Environment Australia has highlighted these concerns, recommending application of the precautionary principle, putting in place protections until sufficient research can be undertaken to adequately document health risks. Food quality and security is essential for good health. Agriculture, already under threat from more severe and prolonged drought conditions associated with climate change, will be further compromised by the CSG industry. As the industry expands, the vast quantities of water diverted from agricultural use to CSG operations and the loss of productive cropland may well diminish Australia's ability to feed itself and the world. Water and air pollution, water shortages, permanent degradation of productive agricultural land and loss of livelihood and landscape, all have mental health consequences for communities living in a gas field. The CSG process can divide previously close-knit rural communities, increasing tension and disharmony, impact on local economies, and threaten other industries such as tourism. But climate change is also an important health issue, and the carbon footprint of CSG over coal is said to be lower. Does this override other considerations? Not at all. Proper monitoring of fugitive emissions is needed to enable accurate comparisons with coal. The International Energy Agency has warned that there is a danger that over reliance on CSG will delay the vital transition to renewable energy. What needs to be done to protect human health? In any new development, health should be an integral part of the assessment process. State Departments of Health should have had a major role on the safety of a CSG development via a health risk assessment process. This is not currently happening in each state, and logically there should be one best practice national process. Adequate information is needed to support risk assessment and health protection and this is largely lacking. Greater transparency of industry practices and improved monitoring would start to fill this gap. There is a strong case for an independent, national Health Impact Assessment process, providing a uniform regulatory framework for the industry in all states and territories. While these protections are being developed, the precautionary principle should be exercised to recognise potential harms and err on the side of caution with any new CSG development. Human health relies on the maintenance of a healthy environment, clean drinking water, secure food production, the cohesion of community and family life. The new gold rush represented by coal seam mining should not be allowed to endanger these basic health needs of Australians.

Warning from a Coal Seam Gas Refugee - Kyogle Rally, Oct 2011
 
14:30
Brian Monk and his family became coal seam gas refugees after csg mining companies turned his 5000 acre farm into a toxic wasteland threatening not just their livelihood but their very lives. Speaking from the heart at the Lismore and Kyogle National Day of Action Against CSG Rally's, Brian issues a stern warning to Northern Rivers residents and the rest of the Australian population - Lock the Gate, stand up with your neighbours and fight this CSG madness BEFORE it destroys our food, our water, our health, our communities and everything we hold dear in this country. As Alan Jones states, mining companies are now running governments at all levels in this country so stopping this CSG madness is clearly a peoples issue. And if we dont act NOW, Brian's fate may present a frightening window to our future. This is a battle we did not ask for but one we can not afford to lose.
