Photo Slideshow: Australia’s Agriculture and Energy

The scale and rapid development of the nation’s coal seam gas industry is changing the social fabric of the country’s small towns and farming regions, which have become protest centers.

In New South Wales, agriculture is the biggest user of water, and academics fear that another industry pumping water from already over-extracted aquifers could prove problematic.

Aaron Jaffe is a Chicago-based photojournalist for Circle of Blue. This slideshow was made to accompany an article written by Circle of Blue reporter Nadya Ivanova: Australia’s Agriculture and Energy Sectors Clash Over Water. Reach Jaffe at aaron@circleofblue.org.
