I know you love the Kimberley. It has the world’s most intact landscapes and the oldest living culture which underpin the $500 million tourism industry.
Right now there are plans to open up the region to oil and gas fracking. Texan fracking company Black Mountain have plans to pipe gas to the Pilbara. This would require over 1,000 gas fracking wells in the Fitzroy River catchment and would be just the beginning.
Theia Energy have estimated they have 6 billion barrels of oil and have suggested a refining factory not far from Broome.
With 40,000 km² of petroleum leases we could see thousands of oil and gas fracking wells across the region.
As well as destroying the world famous Kimberley landscapes, carbon emissions would be on a global scale.
The McGowan Government banned fracking in the Southwest, Perth and Peel, I’m calling on you to ban it in the Kimberley.
