Three industry myths about CSG

According to Dr Barry Manor, Director of the Doyles Creek business Manor Sustainability Consulting Pty Ltd “There appears to be no compelling argument in support of expanding CSG drilling in NSW or anywhere else, for that matter.  A number of studies have shown that CSG potentially has a larger carbon footprint than coal (for generating electricity).  The overall employment associated with CSG exploration and its capacity to mitigate domestic gas price increases has been greatly exaggerated by the energy companies.”

Dr Manor points to this article as providing more information backing up his statements.
