Crikey’s website is down today, so we’re publishing the latest Coal Seam Gas: Behind the Seams posts here. NB: You might like to consider donating to support the work of FAQ Research on our Coal Seam Gas project. The project is effectively unfunded for its last month. Public interest journalism and analysis is not free, and you can actively support it through a donation.
FAQ Research interviewed Kerry Shine MP, ALP Member for Toowoomba North in his electorate office on Margaret Street on 24 February 2012. We discussed the impact of Coal Seam Gas on the Darling Downs, and how the government is responding to the various challenges it poses. This interview is part of the FAQ Research/Crikey Coal Seam Gas: Behind the Seams research and media collaboration. We spoke to Mr Shine for around 14 minutes, and this is a shortened edit of the interview. The footage will be used again in a forthcoming documentary film produced by FAQ Research.
Seven interviews from our Western Downs field trip have now been post-produced and will be uploaded to YouTube and posted over the next little while.
