IT is bizarre the coal seam gas industry, with its known threat of polluting groundwater, can go into any property and start mining, whether the owners like it or not. Yet wind farms can be vetoed by anyone within a 2km radius. wind farms provide clean energy, cheaply and efficiently. The Baillieu Government is a friend of the coal industry, but can't see the value in clean energy. Coal and coal seam gas are dirty and damaging. Victoria needs jobs and energy that are clean and have a future, Mr Baillieu, just like you promised.
