Coal Seam Gas, our next viable energy solution or environmental issue?
There is much debate at the moment about the viability of the tapping of Coal Seam Gas (CSG) as a new energy resource for Australia.
CSG is a naturally occuring combination of Methane, Carbon Dioxide, various Hydrocarbons and Nitrogen that can be tapped as an energy resource.
Geoscience Australia has a fact sheet on CSG, click here to have a read and learn more. However, in a recent article from The Age newspaper there have been concerns expressed about the contamination of natural resources, during the extraction process of CSG.
What do you think?
