GOVERNMENT MUST ACT ON AIR POLLUTION FROM CSG FIELDS
March 7, 2013 - The National Toxics Network is calling on the federal government to take urgent action to protect the publics’ health and the environment in light of new research released today by the Southern Cross University (SCU), which confirms emissions of air pollutants from coal seam gas (CSG) activities.

The study by the Centre for Coastal Biogeochemistry and the School of Environment, Science and Engineering at SCU used atmospheric radon (222Rn) and carbon dioxide concentrations to measure chemical releases to air from the coal seam gas (CSG) fields in Tara, Queensland.

DOCTORS AND COMMUNITY GROUPS SAY NEW EVIDENCE ON AIR
POLLUTION FROM COAL SEAM GAS MINING MEANS BETTER HEALTH
PROTECTION NEEDED

15th November , 2012 - A recent independent University study of the atmosphere of a coal seam gas field near Tara, Queensland has shown evidence of widespread releases of methane and carbon dioxide concentrations.

Hotspot concentrations of methane were detected within the gas field which were more than 3 times higher than background levels found outside the gas fields. Activities such as drilling and hydraulic fracturing (fracking) can release contaminants into sediments and aquifers which escape into the air.

HEALTH RISKS FOR COMMUNITIES LIVING NEAR CSG ACTIVITIES
March 20, 2013 - The National Toxics Network (NTN) and Lock the Gate (LTG) coalition are calling on federal and state governments to take urgent action to protect the health of all communities living around coal seam gas (CSG) fields after the release of the Queensland Government’s report into the health of Tara residents.

“Despite the fact this was not a comprehensive health study it still found children living at Tara were exposed to numerous toxic volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the air, some at levels above health criteria,” said Drew Hutton, spokesperson from LTG.
