Survey shows CSG opinions could change with fresh evidence

LISMORE residents are open-minded to changing their opinion on coal-seam gas as long as fresh evidence comes to light, new research from Southern Cross University shows.

But unfortunately for the CSG industry, those currently in support of CSG are far more prepared to change their opinion on the industry than those against it.

The new report, 'Community perspectives of coal seam gas developments', analysed the results of an exit survey conducted by the university during the Lismore local government elections in September 2012.

The primary concerns of non-supporters of CSG were water quality, community health, and the impacts of the industry on environment and social and economic conditions.
