CSG Mining – An Enviromental Cancer

A Voice From Australia

 

Wake Up It’s Your Future Too!

We have now launched our Call to Country. It’s a call from the heart of this country, and the people who love it, to demand real action to restrict inappropriate coal and gas mining. Our new mapping shows that 437 million hectares of our land is covered by coal and gas licences or applications. That’s more than half of Australia and an area 18 times the size of Great Britain. Even our greatest international tourist icons are not safe, with at least 11 of our 16 National Landscapes at threat.

Stop planetary distruction

Our Call to Country has been plastered to the window or pinned to the door of almost every Federal electorate in Australia. But that was just the beginning.

Over the next month, we’re asking you to take Our Call To Country and meet with your Federal Member of Parliament. Our Federal politicians have shirked their responsibilities for too long – but they have the power to act and now they need to use it. Don’t just stop with your Federal MPs. Keep on taking the Call to Country everywhere it needs to go – pin it to the doors of churches, financial institutions, chambers of commerce, and the offices of federal election candidates. Share it with your friends and families, your colleagues and your social and sporting clubs.

If you love Australia, now is the time to act. The country is calling. (Click to tweet this!)

We call on the federal government to:

1. Put in place an urgent moratorium on coal seam gas and other unconventional gas mining.

2. Create no-go zones to protect productive agricultural land, national tourism icons and all residential dwellings from coal and gas mining.

3. Strengthen the Federal environment laws to exclude coal and gas mining from important water sources, cultural heritage sites and sensitive environment areas.

4. Put in place national standards on coal and gas pollution and enforce compliance.

5. Stop using taxpayers’ money to provide handouts to big coal and gas corporations and make the miners pay their fair share in taxes.

6. Reject current development proposals for coal ports, mega-mines, dams and unconventional gas wells in significant areas.

7. Conduct research into greenhouse gas emissions from mining and make sure they are properly accounted and fully paid for.

8. Hold a Royal Commission to investigate the management of coal and gas resources by all Australian governments.

We have prepared a number of documents and maps that will help you get the word out to your family, friends, and to our politicians, that the federal parliament can act on the issues of coal and coal seam gas mining.

 


 

What you can do

 

” How the delusion is real,reality is upon us no thanks to a Goverment of mining industries and their idea of a quality of life for us all,ha! And for all that is the evil of an industry with no regard to humanity I doubt the people will accept your flagrant destruction of our livelihood’s. What  sort of self-destructing realm are you from to take the food that we eat and  air we breath with the spirit of our for-fathers looking on?How can you sleep knowing what a nightmare we have to endure what we have to fight for, our very survival and that of  what we love dearly,  Earth.”
