The Gippsland Lakes are a uniques lakes system and we would like them to stay that way. The following is from the Los Angeles Times

Helen Redmond, a physician with the New South Wales chapter of Doctors for the Environment, cited rising complaints of rashes, nausea, headaches and nose bleeds among people living close to the Tara gas fields.

 

''Hydrocarbon exposure cannot be ruled out as a cause without much more comprehensive investigation,'' she told the Sydney newspaper, which also quoted a New South Wales Health Department official as saying the government agency should be included in public hearings on fracking plans.

      coal seam gas and all its associated dangers, fracking, etc should be stopped. Communities, environment is much more important than a SHORT term fix for energy needs. Strange how Iron-ore magnate Andrew "Twiggy" Forrest is fighting attempts to exploit the mineral wealth under his own cattle station in the Pilbara.

      Mr Forrest, 51, founder and executive chairman of Fortescue Metals Group, is suing to block attempts to search for uranium on his Minderoo Station and last month failed in an attempt to halt sand mining on the property. doesn't want any mining on his land!!! just other peoples. This is someone who is well aware of the dangers.
