Seam Gas Legislation a Joke.

Listening the commentary on the new mining legislation it seems that if a seam gas mining companies destroy an aquifer the project manager will be liable to criminal sanction. That is a joke.

If the land is degraded because the water aquifer has been destroyed does it make everything OK if someone is thrown into jail? This is the ridiculous attitude that threat of sanctions will stop reckless action.

There is a much simpler concept. If there is risk don’t do it.
