Stop taking methane gas from the underground in Tamil Nadu

Cauvery delta was already vulnerable and production of coal bed methane would damage it further environmentally, economically and socially. The methane is much worse than CO2. The Great Eastern Energy Corporation Limited (GEECL), which is going to explore and produce methane gas in Mannargudi area had silently applied for a Petroleum Exploration Licence (PEL) with the State government.
Exploration and other tests would continue for five years and the GEECL had got the permit to quit if tests proved that production was not profitable. But by that time the land and water in the region would be damaged, he complained.
P. M. Natarajan, member of working group, Planning Commission, Government of Tamil Nadu, said coal bed methane production would affect underground water table. As the project was to be taken up in the ancient Cauvery delta region, it would affect food production and livelihood of farmers and farm labourers too.
S. Ranganathan, Chairman of CCDDS, said livelihood of farmers and farm labourers would be affected if the project was allowed.
Danabalan and P.R.Pandian, farmers’ representatives, said farmers had not been consulted before clearing the proposal.
This would not only affect the farmers but also agricultural production of Tamil Nadu. This in turn would will bring disastrous impact in the price of the agricultural products.
I Kindly request people all over the world to support for the cause and stop taking methane gas.
