I move:

That the Senate—

(a) notes that coal seam gas mining threatens our land, our water, our communities and our climate; and

(b) calls on all parties to commit to not approving any more coal seam gas developments in Australia.

Question negatived.

I ask that it be noted in the Hansard that only the Greens supported that motion.

It is so noted.
