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.

Chance for NT Government to get cracking on fires
Yes Erwin, and I read it with a great interest, but it was mainly for the countryside.
What also concern me is the town and suburbs.
Some yards are a fire hazard and not every street has fire hydrants and those cannot be used if the services are out of town.


Chance for NT Government to get cracking on fires
As fires continue to burn across the states of Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Tasmania the time has come for our so called leaders to prepare for the same eventuality.
Do we have an emergency plan? Could council workers take notice of the residential gardens which could be a fire hazard not only for themselves and their neighbours in the same manner that they clear / cut trees hanging over a fence because it supposedly a danger for pedestrians?
The fire and rescue services will not be able to cope with bushfires and town fires.
