Scott Atkinson – 20 June 2014

Dear Sir/Maam

I am writing to try add balance what is no doubt a noisy and emotion charged debate.

Please consider the science, which is freely available, and that most of the populace would agree that economic development with environmental consideration is the correct course of action for the development and prosperity of these regions.  The checks and balances are already in place for this activity to continue as it should.

Unfortunately in our society, there are occasions when the squeaky wheel gets the grease, please do not mistake the disproportionate noise coming from opponents of Central Australian development as the will of the majority.  Australia is a country of opportunity, please keep it that way.

Let the hydraulic fracturing continue as is, so the development of Central Australia can accelerate.
