Bligh slams Greens coal seam gas stance

Queensland premier Anna Bligh has said the Greens must accept the science on coal seam gas just like it does with climate change.

It comes after Greens leader Bob Brown questions whether using coal seam gas would reduce global emissions, AAP reports.

"There is absolutely no doubt that if Australia wants a cleaner energy future, then gas has to be a part of that and it has to be a part of our transition," Bligh stated.

She went on to say she is ‘very disappointed’ with Brown and other Greens senators’ comments questioning the science on coal seam gas.

"Frankly you can’t pick and choose your science to suit your ideology," she said.

"You either believe the science of climate change, believe the science of coal seam gas emissions or you don’t."
