Barry Fletcher, Glenugie
Re your story on Wednesday last week: ‘Explosion at CSG well probed’, I for one am more inclined to take notice of what [Nimbin Environment Centre secretary] Mr Roberts has to say in relation to these matters rather than [Metgasco CEO] Mr Henderson.
Mr Henderson lost all credibility with comments he made during the Glenugie protest some months ago. Nothing he has said since that time has changed or is likely to change that loss of credibility. Spin and misinformation do nothing to establish credibility in the face of facts.
Mr Roberts is a keen observer and accurate recorder making him, in my view, a reliable spokesperson for the group monitoring the decommissioning of these 19 Metgasco CSG wells.
I trust that the Casino residents aren’t offended at Mr Roberts’ reference to ’cowboy’ decommissioning jobs and the possible conclusion that Kingfisher E01 was ‘a cowboy’ job. After all there are ‘cattlemen’ and there are ‘cowboys’ and even when a cowboy combs his hair neatly and wears a lovely long sleeved white shirt and tie for the camera he remains after all a cowboy.
