As you may be aware, Alan Jones has been running his own inner-city like jihad against coal seam gas for some time now. Broadcasting into QLD during the recent election to get people to vote for the ALP, Jones came out with a litany of misinformation and bare based li.s – mostly about CSG. Of course he never lets facts get in the way of a good left-wing rant to protect his mates in the horse breeding racing industry. A QLD election ‘scandal’ involving AGL CSG operations is a case in point. However the reality now appears far more mundane.
After receiving the water monitoring results, AGL assessed whether the BTEX concentrations could harm the environment or affect human health, and concluded that no such harm arose. AGL then sought expert advice which confirmed its assessment that the BTEX concentrations found did not harm the environment or affect human health. “AGL then proceeded to verify the water sampling procedures including any potential contamination of the samples, review historical data, conduct site inspections, check water monitoring points and also ensure the integrity of our flow back water management system. “Following these review processes, in the interests of acting prudently and because of the community’s concern about BTEX, AGL then determined a full review of the sampling results was needed and voluntarily suspended operations. The relevant authorities – Environment Protection Authority, Office of Coal Seam Gas and the NSW Office of Water – were informed shortly after that decision was made.”
Just wondering where are all the conservative journalists, or at least those wise to the global warming scam, that are willing to take Jones on? The only reason Jones is supportive of the Federal coalition is because of his personal loyalty to Tony Abbott – beyond that it is not always clear that his loyalties lie on the right side of politics.
Jones on the radio this morning pushing marijuana and gloating about getting the QLD LNP government voted out of office. Jones is an old style inner city leftie who just happens to have a personal loyalty to Tony Abbott. That’s it.
