Oil, gas licences ignite demands for overhaul
The protest against Coal Seam Gas Mining in Sydney went ahead yesterday, with around 1500 people turning up to march down the streets on an amazingly warm and sunshiney spring day. It was great to see such a huge turnout, but once again, frustrating to see the lack of science in opinion. I nearly had a hernia when one speaker, speaking with a great deal of confidence stated that methane has a carbon dioxide equivalent of 105…when in fact it’s 25.
I’m glad that people care, but I wish that the organisers would stop undermining their own legitimacy and making the people who have made an informed decision about the issue seem like a bunch of ideological and ignorant idiots.
