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.
Anti-gas activists are fond of talking about how LNG export plants operating on the Queensland coast are “sucking all the gas north” and leaving southern states in the lurch.
Natural gas extraction – including fracking – poses no threat to human health and the environment, despite the claims of ‘Chicken Little alarmists’, argues Steve Wright.
Almost a decade since the first activism, and the fly-in celebrity protests in Dimock, Pennsylvania, we can collectively breathe a sigh of relief: the world has not been destroyed, nor has pretty countryside been turned to ‘wasteland’ in Queensland or Pennsylvania.
