Stop Hydrolic Fracturing in Queensland sign now

One of the main concerns of hydraulic fracturing is the effects on underground water supplies. Coal seam gas forms naturally underground and consists mainly of methane which can be used as fuel, and accumulates underground, held within the natural fractures.

Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) is the process used in the mining of coal seam gas which is the process of initiating and subsequently propagating a fracture in a rock layer, by means of a pressurized fluid. Biocides, petroleum products, carcinogens, and endocrine disruptors, are present in fracturing fluid which are hazardous chemicals that can cause health risks that range from rashes, cancer and interruption of hormones and glands (Waxman, 2011).

Remember we don’t own below 2 metres under our properties which means the government can destroy our land without our permission.

Stop hydraulic fracturing in Queensland, New South Wales have, why can’t we?
