Three reasons why you shouldn’t support CSG: 1. The draw down of groundwater 2. Pollution of agricultural land 3. It’s not climate friendly. NTN has released its updated report on the risks of drilling and extraction of coal seam gas (CSG) in Australia.

Shifting from coal to natural gas would have limited impacts on climate, research indicates. If methane leaks from natural gas operations could be kept to 2.5 percent or less, the increase in global temperatures would be reduced by about 0.1 degree Celsius by 2100. The reduction in global temperatures would be more minor with higher methane leakage rates.
