Gary Gray, ex Woodside Energy executive and resources minister, has been a strong supporter of unhindered mining exploration and development. It was greatly disappointing but not surprising that he strongly backed the James Price Point refinery regardless of community and indigenous opposition and the potential destruction of sacred sites, whale breeding area, bilby habitat. He is an ardent supporter of fracking.suggesting that it is no risk to the environment. Mr Gray spoke of jobs and wealth creation from fracking but neglected to say that most of the jobs would not be for locals but for southern fly in fly out workers and that the bulk of royalty money paid to the government will actually be handed back to the mining companies in the form of subsidies. It will be interesting to see whether Mr. Gray returns to Woodside or another big miner upon his retirement from politics.
