It’s a case of industry science trumping activist scare-campaigning!

The Conservation Council of WA has been found to have used deceptive and misleading statements in an anti-fraccing advertisement published in a regional WA newspaper.

The finding followed a lengthy investigation by the newspaper’s owner, West Australian News Ltd, prompted by a formal complaint from APPEA.

You can read the newspaper’s finding at this link.

The Conservation Council is campaigning to stop onshore gas development in WA. Make sure the WA Government knows that its claims about fraccing have been found to be deceptive and misleading.

Send this message to the WA Minister for Mines and Petroleum

Subject: CCWA campaign caught making “deceptive and misleading” claims.

Message: Dear Minister, I support the safe and responsible development of onshore gas in WA. The Conservation Council of WA has been caught using “deceptive and misleading” advertising in its campaign to stop onshore gas. Don’t let them succeed.
