Coal Seam Gas

Debate resumed on the motion:

That the Senate—

(a) acknowledges that the possible impact on human health and our water resources from coal seam gas (CSG) mining is not well understood; and

(b) calls on the Government to:

(i) act with caution and stop approving CSG projects until such time as CSG mining is considered completely safe by scientists and qualified professionals, and

(ii) establish a royal commission into the human impact of CSG mining.
