Last week we screened Gasland II, all about how ‘Fracking’ (hydraulic fracturing) has polluted water and politics in the USA, and it was pretty scary!
This industry is looking to take off in WA with test wells planned in two locations in regional WA in the next few months. You can watch a 7:30 WA report on it from the other week here: Mid West community unhappy with fracking plans
But here’s the fantastic news, over the weekend, Central Greenough (south of Geraldton) just became the first ‘Gasfield Free Community’ in WA! Over 96% of the community said no to unconventional gas.
Great work Greenough, we support regional Australians protecting their land and water! Make sure you tell your MP that you support protecting our land and water via Clean Water, Healthy Land.
