Comment on Lambley’s fracking OK contingent on thorough assessments by Evelyne Roullet.

“Until a SREBA is conducted and we know exactly what we are dealing with from an environmental and social perspective”.
Listen and learn from other countries: Environmental disaster hit us without a warning and so I am in agreement with Chris: Could we have the figures of how many men and women will be permanently employed for each well?
Would they be local or from other states or overseas?
“New York Governor Andrew Cuomo in December banned fracking in the state. He attributed his decision to unresolved health risks associated with the drilling technique; but the governor surely also weighed the economics and the politics.”
During the past five years, I’ve researched and written about the economic impacts of fracking and, as a long-time resident of New York, I have observed its fractious politics. What I’ve found is that most people, including politicians and people in the media, assume that fracking creates thousands of good jobs.
But opening the door to fracking doesn’t lead to the across-the-board economic boon most people assume. We need to consider where oil and gas industry jobs are created and who benefits from the considerable investments that make shale development possible.

Lets us have a fair dinkum debate on the subject. A formal debate usually involves three groups:
• One supporting a resolution (affirmative team), in this case Gunner and his supporters.
• One opposing the resolution (opposing team), in this case Aboriginal leaders and their supporters.
• Those who are judging the quality of the evidences and arguments and the performance in the debate, in this case rates payers as they will have to open their wallets for covering costs.
