QLD Government deems UCG trial in Kingaroy too risky!

http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2011/01/28/3124052.htm

WBBCC would like to commend Minster Jones on her decision to close the trial Underground Coal Gassification (UCG) plant in Kingaroy after  contaminants were found in groundwater on rural properties adjacent to the plant last year. UCG is simply to risky and it is very pleasing to see the Department of Environment and Resource Management recognise this. The QLD Conservation Sector is calling on the Government to Ban UCG, New coal fired power stations and coal mines and place a moratorium on Coal Seam Gas until it can be proven that it has no impact on the environment.
