Stop seismic testing and offshore gas in NSW

Stop seismic testing and offshore gas in NSW

The Greens have a plan to block the proposal to drill for gas off the NSW coast and save our marine environment and local tourism and commercial fishing industries. 

We need you to sign this letter to the NSW Premier, NSW Labor leader and local Members of Parliament and ask them to support our plan. 

Next Parliament the Greens will introduce legislation to: 

1. Ban processing and transport of gas coming from wells offshore from the NSW coastline to the NSW mainland. 

2. Prohibit the construction of infrastructure relating to offshore exploration and mining activities on NSW land.

To get this Bll through we need your help...

Whales Not Gas

Sign the petition to say NO GAS DRILLING OFF NEWCASTLE

Dear The Premier of NSW.,

I oppose seismic exploration off the coast of Newcastle and the Central Coast and call on your Government to take steps to cancel the existing exploration licence and ban future offshore oil and gas development in NSW.

1. Seismic exploration has been shown to impact on the hearing and navigation of whales and negatively impact on marine habitat and biodiversity.

2. Offshore oil and gas exploration and drilling puts at risk local fishing and tourism industries that rely on a healthy oceans and a vibrant marine and coastal environment.

3. An oil spill off the coast between Sydney and Newcastle could be catastrophic. The risk of oil and gas leaks and spills has been shown around Australia and the world. No matter the quality of regulations, accidents happen. The risk is unacceptable.

4. NSW should be pursuing clean renewable energy, not more polluting and risk fossil fuel.
