"Coal Seam Gas Hell" Evaporation Pond Brine Leak - QGC Chinchilla Queenland Australia
A disaster in the making - here we have a glaring example of the fact that no thought was given to the consequences of all the produced brine and water that is associated with the coal seam gas industry as it dewaters and depressurises aquifers in order to access the gas. Between 2015 and Feb 2016 a leak (or leaks) occurred in the liner of one of QGC's toxic Concentrated Brine Evaporation Ponds at their reverse osmosis plant near Chinchilla. This potentially disastrous leak was not reported to the Government until many months later in late April 2016. These huge toxic ponds not only sit on top Gilgai country (melon hole country) but they were also built on top of Strategic Agricultural Land, and are surrounded by many waterways including Nine Mile and Wieambilla Creeks. These creeks feed into the impacted (and bubbling) Condamine River. These creeks are the veins of the region. The [leaking] Orana 3 Evaporation Pond holds 1040 million litres of concentrated brine. This brine contains high levels of heavy metals, salts and silica. To date, the industry has no means for disposal of the brine. Worryingly, the unconventional gas industry is in it's infancy in Queensland, with no solution for the disposal of or ability to process the many millions and millions of tonnes of salts and brine that it is producing. This is an ill thought out, ecodisaster in the making. Between February and late April the 1040 million litres of concentrated brine disappeared from the leaking pond, it couldn't have been pumped into the adjoining brine ponds as they were full. This beggars the question.... Where did QGC put this huge amount of salt/brine? Where did 1040 million litres of toxic brine and salts disappear to? These ponds are a ticking time bomb. They literally hold the blood of the land beneath them. They hold the blood of the land that should remain in the ground to sustain the natural order... our rivers, our farmers bores and our creeks and springs. Their contents are hazardous to our land and aquatic systems. John Jenkyn and his family live 3km downwind from these toxic white elephants. Multinationals are plundering dewatering and depressurising aquifers for short term gain. At what cost to our nation. At what cost to the long-term future of Australia? Our country deserves far better than this. What will we leave our children? Wake Up Australia. Footage by Max Phillips Soundtrack by Ben Sound Royalty Free Music

Coal Seam Gas Pond Toxic water storage leaking and overflowing
Dobie's Bight rd (mis-spelled as Blight in newspaper) I'm not an expert, I don't know exactly what's in the ponds, I don't know how they are meant to be maintained. What I can say is it looks like a mess, there's salt everywhere, the grass is dead where the liner is broken and where it overflowed into the gully, then into a wetland during the last rain. What's it going to be like when there are thousands of these things, spaced 750m apart, giant lakes of toxic water, all with torn liners and overflowing into the rivers? Someone needs to clean this up and be shamed of themselves. Update; So two days later they have cleaned this up after me making a complaint, I happened to visit it again while they where there. They just filled it in, covered it all with dirt without removing the water. So I'm not sure how effective that was. Like I said I don't know what was in these ponds, produced water, drilling fluid, rainwater, whatever it was at some point chemicals or toxic water were probably stored in those ponds and even if they pumped it out and what I'm looking at is rainwater, you'd think they'd also remove the contaminated plastic liner when they pumped it out? Instead, now they let it flush out for months and have just buried it. The nearby creek runs into he Richmond River. Update: The local paper did a story on this and the gas company CEO denies it was a environmental hazard. I don't know, make your own minds up but I think it's needs further investigation, ie: water samples. See the newspaper article here: http://bit.ly/kUL7Zh

Gas mining invasion NSW: drilling rig convoy arrives at Doubtful Creek from Glenugie
'Five years ago the Coal Seam Gas came to my small QLD town. I was instantly blinded by the benefits that such development would bring. It didn't take long before I could see again, things didn't quite end up the way I had hoped. Forget the bag of gold they offer, once you look closer it's fools gold! 'Our roads became a death trap, the numbers of cars can only be described as an invasion, and soon after the social impacts were there for everybody to see, local people moved from their homes and moved to the show grounds, some in caravans some in tents, most just left town. 'The drill rigs, compressor stations, pipe lines, lay down yards, processing and reverse osmosis plants arrived, accompanied by camps that held thousands of workers. We lost our town and way of life. We didn't know better, but now we do. 'My nightmare has now become your problem, gas wells are being drilled around the Pilliga scrub, most will think "it's not my problem", unfortunately it is. Once the industry gets a foothold you're done for, CSG is like an cancer, it spreads and you don't have a say in it. From thereon in you're just a passenger. If there were ever a time to stand it is now. 'The best thing about your situation is you're not alone, you have people traveling even 7 hours to help you, however, I must warn you that people will only come if they see that the locals are willing to step outside their comfort zone, and want help. It's your problem and you must lead the charge. We have the experience and we're willing to share it with you. 'This weekend people will be traveling to the Pilliga scrub to fight back I am asking you to join us for a non-violent direct action to stop the drilling. Life as you know it is now over, you now have to make a decision. The choice is yours. Are you going to stop this industry in it's tracks? Or are you going to have the never ending stress that comes with living in or around a gas field? Are you prepared to spend years dealing with land access agreements? Or do you want to farm? You and only you can answer that question. CSG is now part of your new life, if you choose to stand by and let go without a fight. 'You can get details from our facebook page "CSG Rescue NSW" (https://www.facebook.com/stopcsg.tara?fref=ts) or contact your local groups. The time is now, and from my personal experience; if you don't stand and fight you will regret it...... 'Kind regards, Dayne Pratzky (26 November 2013)' See also: Stop Coal Seam Gas in the Pilliga! https://www.facebook.com/groups/117313438349153 The footage is from Doubtful Creek, Northern Rivers NSW, in February 2013, where massive community opposition to plans to establish gasfields in the region caused expensive delays resulting in the gas mining company (Metgasco) ceasing operations in March 2013. The quiet and stillness of the beautiful country around Doubtful Creek is shattered by the arrival of the AJ Lucas drilling rig and convoy of associated vehicles. The narrow gravel roads & tiny wooden bridges were never intended to handle these kind of loads. The neighbouring farmers never imagined they would have to contend with this direct assault on their very way of life. The attempt to industrialise the Northern Rivers is bound to fail due to the determination of local communities to protect their land, water and air.

How Trump's rules on coal-fired power plants differ from Obama's
The Trump administration unveiled its plan to reverse President Obama's coal pollution rules. The new EPA proposal, called the Affordable Clean Energy Rule, would give states leeway on whether to limit emissions and by how much, and allow older power plants to operate longer. Yamiche Alcindor reports, and Judy Woodruff discusses the potential impact with Juliet Eilperin of the Washington Post.

Light Your Water On Fire from Gas Drilling, Fracking
A video by Scott Cannon DEP consent order proving methane migration: http://imgur.com/OWUXAYN http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL062539BFB8A2B2D4&feature=view_all Please read this before saying methane migration doesn't exist. It's a proven fact: http://thetimes-tribune.com/news/sunday-times-review-of-dep-drilling-records-reveals-water-damage-murky-testing-methods-1.1491547 The Promised Land in real life. Matt Damon John Krasinski People can light their taps on fire because of gas drilling. This is one of those cases. In fact, one of the companies that produced Truthland, Chesapeake Energy, was responsible for this mess. A snippet from the Marcellus Shale Reality Tour video Sherry Vargson gave the group a tour of her farm in Granville Township, where Chesapeake Energy has drilled one well and installed compressor and metering stations and a gathering pipeline. She said her water became contaminated with methane after maintenance activities at the site in June 2010, and lit water from her tap alight for a trip attendees and the media. The little bus wound its way over green mountains, alongside undeveloped stretches of the meandering Susquehanna River and through some of Pennsylvania's most pristine wilderness. The man inside with the microphone, the Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition's Scott Cannon, said there's trouble in paradise as he pointed out the changes Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling has brought to Pennsylvania's Northern Tier. Here was a drilling rig, there a water withdrawal site and every so often yet another pipeline was laid out in preparation for burial. The sights were part of the coalition's "Marcellus Shale Reality Tour," held Sunday for area legislators, municipal representatives and candidates for political office. "We still have to deal with pipelines, compressor stations; they wanted to put a frack water treatment facility in Hanover Township -- that was an hour away from the nearest drill site," Cannon said. About 15 people attended the tour, including candidate for U.S. representative Bill Vinsko, Wilkes-Barre Administrative Coordinator Drew McLaughlin and Luzerne County Council candidates Kathleen Dobash, Salvatore Licata, Eileen Sorokas and Michelle Bednar. "It's all about information," Sorokas said. "You can't beat going firsthand and seeing it. I've heard so many things about it; I want to clarify it in my mind." "It's important to learn about all sides of this important issue," said Vinsko, a Democrat who plans to a 2012 challenge to Republican Lou Barletta in Pennsylvania's 11th Congressional District. "In order to make informed decisions, I wanted to hear from the landowners on both sides of the issue. I also plan to meet with the gas companies to get all sides of the story, but this is an important first step." At least one trip participant had already made up his mind about the issue. Throop Borough Council President Tommy Lukasewicz said he has been fighting against the efforts of Keystone Sanitary Landfill to increase its daily intake by 2,500 tons, which would allow it to accept more solid waste from the gas drilling industry. "I agree more than anyone here probably that this is the worst thing that could happen to Northeastern Pennsylvania," he said, adding that he believes gas drilling could reverse the progress the area has made in erasing the scars left 50 years ago by coal mining. Lukasewicz, who attended Mansfield University and often drove through Bradford County to get there, said he "wanted to see firsthand what an area (he) had known about looks like now."

60 Minutes: Update: Keep out
On Thursday the Prime Minister announced he was imposing tough new restrictions on gas exporters to solve our domestic energy crisis and reduce prices for Australian consumers. It’s a drastic step which Mr Turnbull says is needed to save the economy, and more particularly 65,000 jobs at immediate risk. But he also says state and territory governments must allow greater gas exploration to increase supply. That’s all well and good, unless it gives the gas producers a licence to do what they want. Last year 60 MINUTES reported how cattle farmer Kane Booth was forced off his land, his livelihood destroyed, when Queensland Gas Company (QGC) moved in to extract coal seam gas. Well Kane is still fighting, and QGC is still acting like a bully. http://www.lockthegate.org.au/dont_frack_oz

Railway Tunnel Running through Coal Gas Seam Becomes Through in southwest China
A railway tunnel marking China's greatest achievement of gas outburst control in railway construction became totally through recently in southwest China. The 7,618-meter-long New Liangfengya tunnel runs through a five-kilometer-long gassy coal seam that has a gas content of higher than 15 cubic meters per ton. That poses great threats of burning and explosion. The builders adopted the country's latest gas drainage technology, including an automatic power cut-off system to rule out risks of gas outbursts. The completion of the project paves the way for the operation of the 344-kilometer-long Yuqian railway line that links Chongqing Municipality and Guiyang City in the country’s southwest, said the tunnel's contractor. "This is the first time we used the gas drainage technology for railway construction in China. The gas content is kept under eight cubic meters per ton in accordance with the requirements. This ensured the safe digging through of the tunnel and prepares for the Yuqian railway's opening to traffic next year," said Cao Meijun with the China Railway 18 Bureau Group Co., Ltd. Upon its completion in 2017, the Yuqian line will drastically cut by seven hours the time it takes to travel from Chongqing to Guiyang compared with the previous nine-hour journey.

African Activist Slams Trump for Reversing Ban on Elephant Trophies from Hunts in Zimbabwe & Zambia
https://democracynow.org - The Trump administration will allow American trophy hunters to import the bodies of elephants they kill in Zimbabwe and Zambia, reversing a ban put in place by President Obama. The Interior Department’s rule change comes even though African elephants are listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. The policy could affect President Trump’s two adult sons, Eric and Donald Jr., who are longtime trophy hunters who have repeatedly posed for photos with dead animals they killed in Africa. A 2012 picture of Donald Trump Jr. in Zimbabwe shows him standing in front of the corpse of an African elephant, holding a knife in one hand and a severed tail in the other.

Voices from the Gaslands - Bob's story - CSG in Australia
Across southern Queensland farmers tell a consistent story of bullying and intimidation by the coal seam gas (CSG) companies eager to get access to prime agricultural land. The invasion has taken place at an alarming rate and left a legacy of stress and landholders who fear for the future of their farms, their water supplies and their families from fracking and unconventional gas extraction..
First Northern Rivers CSG arrest; Metgasco CEO drinks wastewater while protester wins in court
Some context: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umHQbFA5mfM Local TV news reports, from 20 June and 18 July 2012. Before dawn on 20 June 2012 I locked myself to a bulldozer that was in the process of moving earth for the construction of a coal seam gas (CSG) wastewater evaporation pond, despite a NSW state government policy against the use of such ponds. After refusing to disengage I was cut loose and arrested. I am proud to have been able to represent my community's opposition to coal seam gas mining in this way. In a poll held along with local council elections in September 2012 a whopping 87% of respondents voted 'no' to CSG mining in our area. Meanwhile, at exactly the same time as my court hearing, Peter Henderson, the CEO of Metgasco (the gas mining company which built the evaporation pond, and which had recently been fined for illegally dumping CSG wastewater into the local sewerage treatment facility) tried to deflect media attention from my case by staging a publicity stunt in which he actually drank a small glass of CSG wastewater. The noise in the back of his throat after sipping the wee dram says it all. Interestingly, a few months earlier psychologist Dr Wayne Somerville had published a document for use by anti-CSG groups called 'A Guide to Metgasco's Propaganda' (http://www.creeksbend.com/A%20Guide%20to%20Metgasco%27s%20Propaganda.pdf) in which he says 'It would be great PR if a Metgasco executive would drink a glass of the produced water to demonstrate its safety'. Obviously Metgasco thought this excellent advice, although the stunt backfired because a) the water was scooped from the surface of the pond after recent heavy rains, so it was heavily diluted; b) drinking a small glass from one pond didn't prove anything because not all CSG wastewater is of identical quality (would he drink wastewater from a well that had been fracked?); and c) the reactionary nature of the stunt (prompted by my court appearance) made the head of the company appear desperate and reckless. If you rely on advertising from the gas industry for information you'd be forgiven for thinking that their activities are benign and safe. Delve a little more deeply below the surface and you find very disturbing information about the adverse impacts on land, water, air, and on the health of humans and animals. Fortunately people everywhere are waking up to the reality that this industry is madness and must be stopped. The TV news didn't air the soundbite I had prepared for the media, which was that 'I am just one of thousands of people who are determined to see that there is no future for the coal seam gas industry in the Northern Rivers'. I knew this to be literally true, as I was among the 7,000 who marched against CSG in Lismore in May 2012 (a remarkable turnout for a city of around 30,000 people). I was delighted to be presented with a 'hero' beanie by Jenny Leunig of the Knitting Nannas Against Gas after charges against me were dismissed by the Magistrate at Casino Local Court You can see the uncut video of the post-court media interview here: http://www.northernstar.com.au/news/court-clears-csg-protester/1457853/ For more info or to get involved visit http://www.csgfreenorthernrivers.org/ UPDATE, March 2013: On 13 March 2013 Metgasco announced that it was suspending all coal seam gas mining activity in the Northern Rivers. They could not withstand the might of a people united to protect their air, land & water. The war against coal seam gas mining continues, but we in the Northern Rivers are celebrating a great victory. We are now CSG free. UPDATE, October 2013: Last month a disastrous federal election result (attributable in part to interference with our democracy via biased media reporting) brought the Liberal/National coalition to power. Within a short time the new federal resources minister was talking about making the development of the coal seam gas industry in NSW a priority of the new government. Metgasco has taken this 'change in the regulatory environment' as their cue to announce that they intend to recommence their drilling program. This is in spite of the fact that all candidates for the federal seat of Page (in which Metgasco operates), including the successful National Party candidate, campaigned as being opposed to the development of a CSG industry in the Northern Rivers. This is because all candidates knew that the overwhelming majority are passionately opposed to it. People in distant places seem to think they can make decisions that will damage our beautiful region and the health of our children for profit. They have no idea what they are up against. The battle to save our precious water, air and earth continues. The united communities of the Northern Rivers are up for the fight. We simply have too much to lose.

How to green the world's deserts and reverse climate change | Allan Savory
"Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert," begins Allan Savory in this quietly powerful talk. And terrifyingly, it's happening to about two-thirds of the world's grasslands, accelerating climate change and causing traditional grazing societies to descend into social chaos. Savory has devoted his life to stopping it. He now believes -- and his work so far shows -- that a surprising factor can protect grasslands and even reclaim degraded land that was once desert.

ONGC : Oil and Natural Gas Commission of India
Since its inception, ONGC has been instrumental in transforming the country's limited upstream sector into a large viable playing field, with its activities spread throughout India and significantly in overseas territories. In the inland areas, ONGC not only found new resources in Assam but also established new oil province in Cambay basin (Gujarat), while adding new petroliferous areas in the Assam-Arakan Fold Belt and East coast basins (both inland and offshore). ONGC went offshore in early 70's and discovered a giant oil field in the form of Bombay High, now known as Mumbai High. This discovery, along with subsequent discoveries of huge oil and gas fields in Western offshore changed the oil scenario of the country. Subsequently, over 5 billion tonnes of hydrocarbons, which were present in the country, were discovered. The most important contribution of ONGC, however, is its self-reliance and development of core competence in E&P activities at a globally competitive level. Today, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd. (ONGC) is, the leader in Exploration & Production (E&P) activities in India contributing 72 per cent to India’s total production of crude oil and 48 per cent of natural gas. ONGC’s quest for energy goes deeper than setting new benchmarks in deep-water drilling in the Krishna Godavari Basin or finding new frontiers of energy. Global decline in crude prices notwithstanding, we have taken significant investment decisions diligently and aggressively, reversing the production trend in offshore. And now we are venturing into deeper offshore plays in our quest for energy security. It is this journey that has placed us among Fortune “World’s Most Admired Companies” and ranked us 3rd in the E&P industry globally on the Platts Top 250 Rankings 2014.

Primitive Technology: Reusable charcoal mound
*Turn on captions for written commentary (CC in bottom right corner of screen). Charcoal is a valuable fuel that reaches a higher temperature than the very wood it’s made from. I’ve made some before, but with supplies running low due to furnace experiments, I decided to make another large batch of charcoal in a mound. I stacked the wood into a roughly conical shape (about 1 m wide and 75 cm high) and then built a thick wall of mud around the heap (this took 6 hours). Eight air entries were made in the base of the mound and one air exit hole was left at the top of the mound to allow the volatile components of the wood to escape while creating a natural draft to keep everything burning. The mound was lit and the flame burned backwards down the heap in the opposite direction to the draft. This protects the coal made above the level of the fire from burning as carbon dioxide rushes past instead of oxygen, preventing combustion of charcoal. Each air entry was sealed only when fire became visible through them. This is an easy way to tell when to close them up, i.e. when the fire had burned down all of the wood in the heap. When the last air entry was closed, the air exit at the top of the mound was sealed, 5 hours after starting. The next day when cool, a large arched opening was made in the side of the mound to extract the charcoal. Despite a few unburnt brands the yield and quality was good filling almost 2 baskets. To see if the kiln was reusable, I restacked it with timber cut from a fallen gum tree branch up the mountain. Due to the difficulty in reaching into the mound I stacked the wood in criss-crossed horizontal layers. The opening was sealed with mud and the mound lit as before. This time the mound burned quickly and I had to seal it early as the timber was burning at different rates, 3 hours after starting. Some large logs remained unburnt while charcoal that had already formed started to burn up being wasted as ash. When I opened it the next day it had still produced an ok amount of charcoal but was disappointingly low compared to the first batch. This may partly be due to some of the wood being still green though it’s probably more likely to be due to how it was stacked. The lesson here is that when making charcoal the wood needs to be tightly stacked with few air spaces between. If not, the mound admits too much oxygen that quickly burns the timber. Another thought I had was that wood may convert to charcoal better if laid vertically (or roughly so, like the cone in the first firing) so that the fire starts at the top of the wood and burns down. Stacking the wood in horizontal layers means that each layer has to set the one bellow alight leading to problems if the wood is green (use dry wood if stacking horizontally). By stacking wood vertically each piece is alight already and simply burns down towards the air entries. Stacking in this way also makes it easier to see fire in the air entries letting you know when to seal the mound. For the reasons above I may make another charcoal kiln in future in the shape of a cylinder with air entries around the base and an open top. The kiln would be re-usable and easily stacked. A conical pile of wood would protrude above the walls of the kiln and be plastered in a temporary cover of mud. The kiln would be fired as with a normal mound and when finished the temporary cover of mud would be removed to extract the charcoal Wordpress: https://primitivetechnology.wordpress.com/ Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=2945881 I have no face book page, instagram, twitter etc. Beware of fake pages.

Dr Karl gives his view on CSG
Point 1. One major problem with CSG in Australia is that it can pollute the acquirers and yet Australia is the driest inhabited continent on earth. Point 2. We don’t need CSG. If you look at the Zero Carbon Australia report coming out of the university of Melbourne we can get all of our electricity, including base load, from just 2 of the 15 renewables and set up and running within 10 years and will average out over 30 years at one third of the price of burning coal. CSG is a blind pathway, will leave us with a stranded asset, will damage the environment and will leave us economically worse off than if we tried to develop new technology that we could sell to the rest of the world See Frackman and judge for yourself; www.frackmanthemovie.com More about the Zero Carbon Australia Karl mentions; http://ow.ly/JNIWc

Engineers design new lead detector for water - Science Nation
Tease: New sensor offers continuous monitoring, immediate detection of lead Description: Mechanical engineer Junhong Chen and a team at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee (UWM), have developed what you might think of as a "canary in the coal mine" for lead in water. With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), they designed a sensor with a graphene-based nanomaterial that can immediately detect lead and other heavy metals. The new platform technology can be used for one-time testing of lead in tap water through a handheld device. The small sensors also can be integrated into water meters and purifiers, with the goal of continuous monitoring to prevent exposure to lead that could be introduced between the water treatment plant and the home. The team is now working with manufacturers, including A.O. Smith Corporation, Badger Meter Inc., Baker Manufacturing Company LLC and NanoAffix Science LLC, to put the sensors into use. In addition to real-time detection and continuous monitoring, this lead sensor system is a low cost way to mitigate lead contamination in water. This research is supported by the NSF Industry-University Cooperative Research Centers (I/UCRC), specifically the Water Equipment and Policy I/UCRC at UWM, as well as the NSF Partnerships for Innovation: Accelerating Innovation Research (PFI:AIR) programs, which help translate discoveries from academic labs into new products and services.

Why Coal Is "Retiring" Faster Than Anyone Thought
Energy analysts are expecting coal to fizzle fast. John Iadarola, Jayar Jackson, and Brooke Thomas, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. To get even more TYT in your life, go to https://TYT.com/app and download our free app! "Utility coal power closures driven by market economics were a regular occurrence throughout 2017. While President Donald Trump’s “Energy Dominance” agenda gave the false impression that federal efforts could revive coal, 27 coal-fired plants totaling 22 gigawatts (GW) of capacity were announced for early closure or conversion in 2017 – roughly one every 15 days since Trump’s election. U.S. electricity generation economics have completely reversed. Building new coal is more expensive than building new renewable energy across the U.S. , and in many parts of the country, keeping existing coal plants open is more expensivethan building new wind turbines (and solar, in some places). From 2007 to 2016, 531 coal units representing 55.6 GW of capacity were retired across the U.S., at an increasingly rapid pace.”* Read more here: https://www.forbes.com/sites/energyinnovation/2017/12/18/utilities-closed-dozens-of-coal-plants-in-2017-here-are-the-6-most-important/#6cb226a55aca Hosts: John Iadarola, Jayar Jackson, Brooke Thomas Cast: John Iadarola, Jayar Jackson, Brooke Thomas *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.
