Fracking is not the answer

[Forum] The new ‘climate fix’ seems to be fracking, now in the Northern Territory and spreading Australia wide.

No mention of the huge amounts of water needed, much of it coming from our Artesian Basin, the polluted toxic waste, and evidence mounting for the boom in methane released into the atmosphere , which is worse than CO2 in causing global warming.
Yet one of our national newspapers has a full page article claiming that fracking is the only way to save us all from disaster.
You can fool all of the people some of the time.
