Stories about "CSG emissions":
The people of the Northern Rivers of NSW breathed a big sigh of relief when they stopped the unconventional gas industry at Bentley. But the industry didn't stop when it hit resistance – it simply went around us, and left the region in a false bubble of security.
A new report by the University of Melbourne Energy Institute has found that unmeasured methane leakage and fugitive emissions from unconventional gasfields could cause Australia to fail its Paris climate commitments.
Lock the Gate has hailed the publication of Australia’s first peer-reviewed research into ‘fugitive’ methane emissions from coal-seam gas mining, saying it backs up similar research in the US.
Leaking methane is the Achilles' heel of Australia’s coal seam gas export industry, so there was a rush last week to welcome the CSIRO’s first measurements of these 'fugitive emissions', which found little leakage. But the finding was much narrower than initial reports suggested.
