Moratorium on fossil fuel mining call from LOCK THE GATE

lock-the-gateMoratorium on fossil fuel mining call from LOCK THE GATE

An undemocratic process has disenfranchised the Australian people with regards to the development of the coal and unconventional gas mining industries in Australia.

An undemocratic process has disenfranchised the  people of Queensland with regards to the development of lands subject only to ULDA APPROVAL.

The LOCK THE GATE Alliance is a national alliance of community, industry and environmental groups and individuals.

The long-term cost of our water, food security and our communities is at risk.

Fossil fuel extraction has a detrimental effect on the health of people and the environment. 

 Our most productive food production land is at risk. The precautionary principle is not beng applied. What happens to the world's biodiversity?

ARE THEY OUT OF THEIR MINE’D?

Last Updated on 12 March 2012

Barney_Maroon_potential_coal_mine_vista

Carabella Resources Limited’s (www.carabellaresources.com.au/Projects/BarneyViewAndMaroon ) plans to commence coal exploration in the scenic Mt Barney valley at Barney View in 2011 have been exposed this week. Local residents and council were caught completely unaware of the impending plans of this profit-driven shareholder company, who’s ultimate aim is to exploit the finite natural resources of The Scenic Rim.

 

The planned coal exploration and coal mine is adjacent to World Heritage-listed Mt Barney National Park, and is a designated “National Landscape” and is called “Australia’s Green Cauldron” (this is a Parks Australia and Tourism Australia project  ) http://www.australia.com/campaigns/nationallandscapes/AustraliasGreenCauldron.htm

 

Innes Larkin, owner/operator of Mt Barney Lodge said “Carabella Resources Ltd is planning to explore and potentially mine coal in a region of national significance, it has been listed as the third most biodiverse region in Australia. We intend on sending a clear message to the State Government to protect our shared environmental assets and halt coal exploration immediately”.

Coal Exploration and Mining at Barney View

Last Updated on 12 March 2012

projectoverviewimgConcerned Residents Meeting

regarding
Coal Exploration and Mining at Barney View

Beaudesert Times journalist Gary Corbett broke the news on Wednesday last week, that Coal Mining is headed to the Mt Barney region. Carabella Resources Limited is cashed up and they already have State Government Mining Licences to allow Coal exploration within the next few months at Barney View, Maroon, and the western Boonah-Rathdowney Road corridor. If this proves to be worthwhile, mining is the next step.

Information about Mt Barney and Maroon is provided here.

This is of great concern to the environment, farming, tourism, local businesses, reisdents who value the rural charm and values of their chosen lifestyle, and those who live near road corridors. A preliminerary community meeting will be held at Mt Barney Lodge (15 minutes from Rathdowney) which is at the southern end of the investigation area. It will be held at 2pm on Friday 18th February.

The purpose of the meeting is:

  1. to share information of what is known to date, using images and maps
  2. discuss what impact this will have on local residents as well as the rest of the Shire
  3. plan what action steps need to be taken in response

All are welcome to attend, and RSVP's or further enquiries should contact info@mtbarneylodge .com.au or 5544 3233.

World Heritage listed Mount Barney National Park values are threatened by  incompatible continued mining of fossil fuel. Many local businesses supported Queensland's Carbon Diet to reduce our greenhouse gas output. Granting of such licences is beyond belief with our current knowledge and understanding of the global state ot the environment.

 

 

The Man Who Stopped the Desert - Film Festival

Last Updated on 12 March 2012

An African peasant farmer has managed what so many others failed to do: transform the lives of thousands of people by making the desert bloom again. Discover the untold story of Yacouba Sawadogo, an illiterate African farmer who battled for two decades with nature and man to become a pioneer in the fight against desertification. Perfectly pitched cinematography engages beautifully with a story that will leave you moved and inspired.

Yacouba resurrected an ancient planting technique known as "zai," using traditional planting pits. He hacked into the hard-baked earth and filled the pits with compost. In the region, tens of thousands of hectares of land that was completely unproductive have been made fertile again. Yacouba has reversed the process of desertification in the deforested and drought-ridden Sahel, a belt up to 1,000km wide, spanning Africa from the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea.

This story is a reminder that determined individuals can at least slow down the steamroller of environmental destruction across the planet.

Using, and then enhancing, traditional "zai" techniques for restoring degraded land, which involve planting seeds directly into pits that have been enhanced with small handfuls of composted dung, Yacouba Sawadogo has spent over a quarter century experimenting with his soils, and then teaching his fellow farmers, resulting in the successful rehabilitation of farmland, the regrowth of forests, and attention from international media and non-profit organizations who wanted to learn more about Sawadogo's techniques.
