Mining the Earth for minerals and gas doesn't result in any collateral damage to the environment,all politicians are honest,and Big business will look after their workers too!...MMMapleman

22,000,000 people in Australia need gas and electricity and water and other raw materials like gravel and sand and lime - its got to come from somewhere but not from my back yard ?
I guess this is part of my annoyance with the situation. The gas that is being mined is for overseas markets.
The jobs are fly in, fly out and don't add a lot to the local community with employment.
Some positions are fly in from overseas.
The product and the profits all go overseas and we are left with our land raped and pillaged.
Meanwhile, one of those "honest" politicians signs off another approval for Kakadu to be mined for a nice fat pay off. (insert obscured mental imagery here)Bare foot and still able to count to ten.

Overseas fly in fly out workers are in the minority in CSG operations...far fewer than offshore conventional oil and gas operations.Whatever note you blow youre never more than a semitone away from the correct one....(Miles Davis)

Just saying … I can kinda understand NIMBY when it's a protest against unsustainable ways of doing things.

A democracies strength is measured by the strength of its private property rights.
You will note the absence of rights in Australia. You have none.
