To The Commissioner,

I wish to submit my concerns about fracking.

Fracking is environmental vandalism. 

It is a short term solution to an energy problem that will create long term and unsolvable problems.

It has been shown world wide to destroy the basic human rights of local residents including the right to clean water.

For a small community like the nt to put its people and its beautiful environment at risk for the greed of nameless, faceless, businesses is ridiculous. We do not need coal seam gas. Why would we risk our environment so somebody else can use it?

Fracking should not be allowed we can survive extremely well without fracking and not at all witout water!

I call upon you to ban fracking
