Multi-million-dollar protest group Lock The Gate has finally succumbed to pressure and apologised to Origin Energy for its “scandalous allegations” of conspiracy with the NT Government and independent inquiry into hydraulic fracturing.
Anyone trying to tell you USA natural gas is a ‘failure” or part of a “worldwide horror story” is genuinely misguided – or has possibly spent too much time reading activist blogs.
A fortnight after posting them, anti-gas protest group Lock The Gate has belatedly relented and removed offending ‘conspiracy’ allegations from its website.
Anti-gas activist group Lock The Gate has been forced into a humiliating apology over its “scandalous” attack on the Northern Territory Government and its independent Scientific Inquiry into Hydraulic Fracturing.
Activists like to try to portray resource companies as bullies – despite the ongoing evidence that they themselves are commonly the source of vitriolic attacks.
The Australia Institute has again exposed itself as a blatant exponent of environmental dogma in its latest publication – a submission to the Scientific inquiry into Hydraulic Fracturing in the Northern Territory.
Does the Northern Territory scientific inquiry into fracking know what it is talking about? For that matter, does the Commonwealth Chief Scientist, or the New South Wales Chief Scientist, or the CSIRO? The answer is obviously ‘yes’, in each instance.
