Review of Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking) in Tasmania

To Frack or not to Frack? A year ago we had a meeting combining untold tales from the oil industry by Martin Goodrich with a movie on Fracking . Scroll through it for the link to see the movie “Unearthed” online if you missed it – very watchable. https://astrotas.wordpress.com/2014/03/19/unearthed-march-meeting-pt-1/

So where are we now in 2015? The statewide moratorium on fracking for natural gas extraction will expire march 31st Submissions to the review are now available to read online from DPIWE http://dpipwe.tas.gov.au/about-the-department/review-of-hydraulic-fracturing-(fracking)-in-tasmania/submissions-to-the-review-of-hydraulic-fracturing-in-tasmania
