NORTHERN TERRITORY: Origin Energy is lining up to frack the NT this year, and in the firing line are some magical places, including water recharge zones of Mataranka Hot Springs.
Origin has also expanded their plans to drill thousands of gas wells across Queensland, and to frack for oil and gas in the precious Kimberley region of WA.
Traditional Owners have told us that Origin Energy has ignored their concerns about fracking and not properly laid out the risks involved.
WESTERN AUSTRALIA: The Kimberley is a culturally rich region, home to a living Aboriginal culture many tens of thousands of years old.
It also has some of the largest intact natural landscapes left in the world.
Yet the Kimberley is under serious threat of industrialisation by oil and gas companies who want to exploit the region. They want to frack despite the impacts this will have on the fragile and unique environment and its people.
QUEENSLAND: At the last two elections, the Queensland Government promised to protect the mighty floodplains of the Channel Country in the Lake Eyre Basin.
But they haven’t delivered, and now Origin Energy have applied to frack for oil and gas across 11 leases covering over 225,000 hectares of land.
NATIONAL: Where would you rather see our taxpayer money invested?
The Government wants to frack, but what does Australia want?
We’ve put together a letter you can sign and add your ideas for the Federal Government on what they could do with our hard-earned tax dollars.
NATIONAL: Coal and gas are damaging Australia’s water, environment and economy. Meanwhile, renewables are rising.
Farmlands, water resources and the climate can’t afford to keep propping up these polluting industries. They are on the way out. It’s time for Australia to grow stronger and tool up to embrace cleaner energy.
NATIONAL: The Australian Government has announced plans to hand over millions of taxpayer dollars to the gas industry for big new fracking gas pipelines and gas infrastructure.
Our Federal decision makers need to hear from you on this. We can’t have them getting all their advice from the gas industry, and miss out on hearing your voice.
NEW SOUTH WALES: Our drinking water, our rivers and even our World Heritage areas are threatened by longwall coal mining in the greater Sydney region.
It’s time that Premier Berejiklian declared Sydney's drinking water catchment a no-go zone for coal mining.
