Community Excellence - Cadia Valley Operations, Newcrest Mining (Enhancement Project)
 
02:22
In 2012 Cadia Valley Operations (CVO) launched a project designed to address concerns of near neighbours that their agricultural land was devalued by the location of a major mining operation in their district. The goal of the Cadia District Enhancement Project (CDEP) was for CVO to work with its near neighbours to create environmental and community benefits for the Cadia district which would enhance the value of the area as an agricultural, mining, or lifestyle choice because of the mining operation, not in spite of it. In four years since its launch, the CDEP has become an inclusive community partnership, with residents of the Cadia District volunteering to form a governing committee, actively driving projects and working closely with each other and CVO representatives as equal partners in a community collective.

What Coal Mining Hydrogeology tells us about the Real Risks of Fracking_London Lecture_May 2016
 
01:30:21
Development of shale gas by hydraulic fracturing (‘fracking’) is opposed by campaigners who hypothesise (amongst other things) that potable ground water supplies could be polluted by upward migration of fractures and any fluids they contain. There are very strong reasons for doubting this hypothesis, not least because migration of fractures to prolific aquifers would be highly unlikely to lead to pollution, but almost certain to result in drowning of the shale gas wells, rendering them unusable. Hence, despite having contrasting motivations, shale gas developers and environmental guardians turn out to have a strong common interest in avoiding inter-connection to aquifers. There is in fact a century-long analogue for such a ‘confluence’ of interests, provided by the history of longwall coal mining beneath the sea and major aquifers. Where large-scale mining proceeded from the surface downwards, major hydraulic inter-connection of shallow and deep zones did indeed result in widespread water pollution. However, where new mines were developed at depth without any connections to shallow old workings), complete hydraulic isolation from the near-surface hydrogeological environment was successfully maintained. This was despite the fact that longwall mining produced far greater stratal disruption than shale gas fracking ever could. A detailed example is presented from the successful operation of the Selby Coalfield beneath one of the UK’s main aquifers. This profound and sustained historical analogue provides a very clear lesson: given the lack of hydrogeological connectivity to shallow aquifers, shale gas fracking per se cannot contaminate shallow ground water. Provided operators observe long-established laws governing hydrocarbon wells and associated surface operations, other hydrogeological risks will also be minimal. Opponents of shale gas developments should therefore focus attention on more realistic potential impacts, most of which are familiar from almost any planning application, such as increased truck traffic on minor roads. Speaker Biography Paul Younger (University of Glasgow) Paul L Younger FREng holds the Rankine Chair of Engineering and is Professor of Energy Engineering at the University of Glasgow. He was formerly Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Engagement at Newcastle University, where he also established and led the Sir Joseph Swan Institute for Energy Research and, subsequently, the Newcastle Institute for Research on Sustainability. A geologist by first degree, Paul trained in hydrogeology in the USA as a Harkness Fellow in the mid-1980s, subsequently developing a career in environmental engineering. He is perhaps best known for his research and outreach on the environmental management of water in active and abandoned mines worldwide, which won the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher Education for Newcastle University in 2005. He is a Fellow of the Geological Society and a Chartered Geologist, as well as a Chartered Engineer. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2007 and has received honorary doctorates for his mine water pollution work from leading universities in Spain and South America. His current research focuses on deep geothermal. In parallel with his mainstream academic work, Paul has founded and directed four companies in the water and energy sectors and has authored more than 400 items in the international literature, including the well-received books “Mine Water: Hydrology, pollution, remediation” (Kluwer, 2002), “Groundwater in the Environment: An Introduction” (Blackwell, 2007), “Water: all that matters” (Hodder, 2012) and “Energy: all that matters” (Hodder, 2014). His knowledge of shale gas was gained through serving on the Joint Royal Academies’ Expert Panel, which reported to the UK government in 2012, and on the Independent Expert Panel on Unconventional Gas, which reported to the Scottish Government in June 2014. When not otherwise engaged, Paul’s preferred activities include exploring the Scottish Highlands and Islands, singing and playing traditional music, and indulging his love of the Spanish and Gaelic languages and cultures.

In the grip of drought: Should Australia's farmers be subsidised? | Talk To Al Jazeera In The Field
 
24:26
The east of Australia is in the grip of drought. Parts of the states of New South Wales and Victoria received virtually no rain at all over the Australian winter, and that lack of rain came after more than a year of much-dryer-than-average conditions. Farmers across the country are struggling to grow crops and feed their animals. "The grind of a drought gets to you. You get a 50 kilometre per hour wind blowing in your face all day and there's a bit of dust mixed through it and you've still got to feed your stock and that .... It's just the fact that you're out there every day and things are going backwards not forwards," says sheep and cattle farmer Wayne Dunford. Agriculture contributes three percent to Australia's gross domestic product (GDP). The industry is worth more $40bn a year and directly employs 300,000 people. It also has a unique place in the Australian psyche - and in politics. "This is a way of life that is important to Australia's future. And as a result of that I think that means there's a special responsibility here," says Prime Minister Scott Morrison. "I'll make sure that way of life continues to be preserved." The way colonial settlers tamed a rugged land to produce crops and graze animals is part of Australia's history and has become part of its self-identity. Even though most Australians live in cities, they have a strong affinity with what's known as 'the bush'; and have sympathy for those growing their food there. Linda Botterill is a political scientist who has worked in the offices of two government ministers for agriculture. She says the political attachment to farming is rooted in Australians' cultural affinity with those who work the land. "Drought makes great television. And in Australia - visually - our droughts are really confronting. So people in the city who don't necessarily understand the economics of agriculture - who have this deep cultural sympathy for farmers - want their governments to act." Australia's national and state governments have just announced an aid package worth almost $2bn for farmers hit by drought. But what used to be an uncontroversial government expenditure is now, for the first time, attracting critical eyes. Disapproving economists say that aid packages unlike any in other industries distort the agriculture industry. They also claim subsidies keep uneconomic farms alive artificially and discourage necessary prudence and innovation. "If you want to be in agriculture then you've got to take the good and the bad times," says Melbourne-based economist John Freebairn. "I feel sympathy for them. But ... farmers voluntarily choose farming .... From the perspective of individual farmers and of the nation, we would want them to be involved in farming if on average the money they make during the good times will carry them through the bad times. If the farmer can't do that and the country can't do that, then we're better off shifting those people to some other activity," he says. "Why subsidise farming but not tourism or manufacturing or restaurants? ... You're really taking resources away from one side of the economy ... to subsidise the agricultural sector. Why would you want a bigger agricultural sector and a smaller services and manufacturing sector?" As eastern Australia is in the grip of drought, what is the best solution for the country and its farmers? Talk to Al Jazeera travelled to inland New South Wales to talk to farmers about how bad this drought has been and to those who are now questioning financial help for farmers. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: https://www.aljazeera.com/

Report Claims EPA to Blame for Massive Toxic Mining Sludge Spill

The Department of Interior’s Bureau of Reclamation's report on the Gold King Mine incident summarized how the spill was caused. It also offered recommendations on how to prevent future disasters. The report stated that the failures at Gold King Mine show larger issues within the procedures the government uses to remediate abandoned mines. http://www.buzzfeed.com/claudiakoerner/epa-error-caused-mine-spill-that-contaminated-a-colorado-riv?utm_term=4ldqpia http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

Landholders Support Santos
 
01:59
Jeremy Gett, farmer and Santos employee, discusses his experiences with the CSG industry. "I’m a fourth generation farmer and I also work for Santos. Farming is my first passion. I was born and bred on the land obviously. My son is 15, he’s fifth generation. We have been here for 100 years - 100 years last month, the Gett family have been in this district. If I thought oil and gas could harm my farm in any way long term, it wouldn’t be happening on my place. Coal Seam Gas is nothing new to me. It has been in this area around Yarrie Lake, I think I was around 8 the first time I saw a gas well. I’m 40 in a few months. Some of the media hype we hear about bores with gas bubbling out of them. The only gas I know of in bores, goes back years and years when you hear the old timers talking about some of these artesian bores, they could light them. And that’s years ago before there was any sort of exploration in this area. The activists are very passionate about what they do and they firmly believe in it. Others are easily led, I feel. They are very quick to judge on what they see in the media. I have to give them the respect they deserve as that is what they believe. As I would appreciate if they give me the same sort of respect. The change I have seen in 10 years, especially since Santos have taken over. They definitely stride very hard to prove that they can and are doing the right thing. We are under fire and we can’t afford any slips. So it’s extra vigilance every day to make sure we do it right. I love the land and I would never do anything to jeopardise our future here. To supply NSW with a significant part of their energy supply would be something I would be very proud of." For information visit our website - https://narrabrigasproject.com.au/

NIIA 2017 Innovation of the Year  The Mailler's Chillamurra Solar Farm
 
02:50
The Mailler family’s Chillamurra Solar Farm is an inspiration. Michael Mailler was a broadacre dryland farmer in Northern Inland NSW since 1966. The family’s innovations in agriculture were industry changing. Yet, Michael has endured so many disheartening seasons, compared to his earlier farming experience that, to him, climate change is a very real crisis. His response is a passion for making a difference, as reflected in his “field that gleams”. In 2015, the Maillers sold their farms and bought a 120 hectare property to develop a medium scale solar farm. Michael Mailler, with his sons Robert and David engineered an amazingly cost-effective solar farm model. A second solar farm is being manufactured on-site in Queensland and the Maillers hope that the model that they have engineered will inspire others. The Mailler family’s Chillamurra Solar Farm innovative peg system is the second largest of its kind in the world. That innovative approach and the smaller panels used made it 40 percent less expensive than other systems. Simplified engineering and construction meant that the largely unskilled labour could be used. The project was an economic stimulus just below the NSW / Queensland border, with $400,000 going to local wages and $100,000 to contractors. The plant was turned on in May and had all units working in early July. The plant has an inverter capacity of 3.6 MegaWatts and panel capacity of 4.8 MegaWatts and is currently producing an average of 28 MegaWatt hours per day. The total cost was close to $6milion and the income generated by the electricity being pumped into the grid is approximately three quarters of a million dollars per year. The engineering simplicity, towards the sustainable manufacture of electricity was achieved with the support of a small group of stakeholder investors but no Government funding. Beyond prosperity and abundance, the Mailler’s solar farm is an innovation that is a shining light in the dawn of a new era, in which individuals can viably contribute to a more sustainable world.

It also means that the builders had a big job to get the trail built, having to trek up the hill carrying tools and then go to the effort of digging, so well done those guys.
