Why we oppose the gas import terminal

Image

Gas is highly flammable and many locals are concerned about safety. Best practice is to locate gas terminals and LNG tankers at least 3.5kms away from residents, as happens elsewhere in Australia. Geelong residents will live within 2km of Viva's proposed terminal and less than 250m away from the transiting LNG tankers. The risks to life include asphyxiation, incineration or burns. 

Image

Gas is a dangerous and polluting fuel that contributes to the climate crisis. LNG is Methane, which can be even worse for the climate than coal because it leaks into the atmosphere. This leaked gas traps more warmth, increasing our risks of severe heat, drought, bushfires and sea-level rise.

We are at an energy crossroads.We have a choice to make, continue to invest in polluting fossil fuel infrastructure or transition our households and businesses to electric appliances that are cheaper, cleaner and safer to run.

Fish with cross over it

These floating gas terminals are a threat to marine life and fishing. The Victorian government has already rejected a gas terminal in Westernport Bay because of “unacceptable risks” to the marine environment. Fishers will likely face extensive exclusion zones along the shipping channel and gas terminal to ensure the security of the LNG tankers and the floating gas terminal.

Geelong should be a hub for renewables, not gas. Let’s position our city for the future of work. We’ve got the infrastructure, skilled workforce and proud manufacturing heritage to grow a clean energy industry.
