Petitioning Minister for the Environment and Energy Hon Josh Frydenberg MP and 1 other

Please reject burning and subsidising of native forest wood as renewable energy

Burning native forest wood for energy is not clean, renewable or green. Australian Government policy is currently not to allow renewable energy subsidies for native forest wood, but this is under threat. Further, logging native forest makes it MORE fire prone. It does NOT reduce risk.
The woodchipping industry views burning native forest for electricity as a lifeline to enable continued destruction of Australia’s native forests as traditional markets for woodchips have collapsed. Protecting native forests is the quickest, safest and cheapest way to help stop climate change
