Abstract

Since the 2010 release of the film Gaslands in the US, community opposition to coal seam gas ('CSG') mining activities has gained considerable momentum in Australia. The grounds of opposition rest on environmental concerns and associated risks to the health of those living nearby, as well as economic and social impacts through destruction of foodproducing land and local communities. These issues are being taken to governments across Australia - particularly by the community-based lobby group, Lock the Gate Alliance Inc ('Lock the Gate'), but also by the Australian Greens. Farmers' groups have highlighted the threat to food production nationally, where exploration and mining occur in agriculturally viable areas.
