40,000 gas wells in the Surat region - What is the Effect ?

Coal Seam Gas seems to be the largest issue confronting QLD livestock producers.
No -one really knows what the impact will be to the land, to the agricultural industry or the people who choose to live in the region.

My theme this past week has been Food and Food Security, we must consider carefully any land management changes that may not be reversable. It seems legislation is being pushed through to allow up to 40,000 gas wells to be drilled in the Surat Basin alone.

I don't know enough to write more but I am attaching a couple of documents :
1. A summary of the Water & Other Legislation Bill 2010
2. A letter to the media from Peter Shannon, Solicitor, Dalby . QLD
Also here is the trailer for a movie called "Gasland" featuring a similar issue in USA.

This movie called "Gasland" being shown in Brisbane and Roma, details below.
