Emissions impossible

The Northern Territory's decision to green-light fracking in the Beetaloo Basin relied on a CSIRO/GISERA report entitled 'Mitigation and Offsets of Australian Life Cycle Greenhouse Gas Emissions of Onshore Shale Gas in the Northern Territory', released in Febrary this year. An independent analysis by Climate Analytics commissioned by the Nurrdalinji Aboriginal Corporation found that the CSIRO/GISERA report greatly underestimated Beetaloo greenhouse gas emissions. Thomas Houlie from Climate Analytics tells us what they found.
