COAL SEAM GAS PROTEST SYDNEY

Coal seam gas – what is it and how does it affect the environment and communities?

Find out at a public meeting on October 16 held by the Alternative Technology Association (ATA).

Coal seam gas extraction involves unconventional techniques to extract gas from coal deposits that are otherwise difficult or impossible to exploit.

These new techniques and the challenges posed by them will be discussed by Mark Ogge of the Australia Institute and Monash University’s Dr Gavin Mudd. The meeting will include an overview of the CSG industry, what the infrastructure looks like, the scale of this infrastructure and the economic impacts of mining booms including gas.  Both speakers have an in-depth knowledge of the topic.

When: October 16, 6.30pm for 7pm
Where: Grace Park Lawn Tennis Club, 6 Hilda Crescent, Hawthorn
Cost: Free, but RSVP on the Alternative Technology Association website.
