If anyone in Byron Shire needed yet more evidence of what state governments will permit in the name of earning coal-seam gas-mining royalties at any price, have a look at this shocking YouTube clip of what is being done with the ‘produced’ water up in Queensland: http://youtu.be/K04taMEqIac.
And don’t think it could never happen in Byron Shire – because the New South Wales government holds nothing sacred – except the dollar.
I’ll definitely be attending the public meeting at Byron Council Chambers at 6pm on Wednesday November 28, where information will be given on how to put in a submission protesting the widespread prospecting leases that have been granted in Byron Shire – including parts of Mullumbimby.
Do we really want our beautiful shire turned into an industrial wasteland? I would urge all concerned residents to attend the meeting.
