Urgent action is needed to protect Australia’s forests and Renewable Energy Target
Apr 14, 2015 — The native forest logging industry is lobbying hard to have what it calls “wood or forest waste” included in Australia’s Renewable Energy Target. The Abbott Government will make a decision on this very soon, within days or weeks. If the industry is successful, this will provide new subsidies for native forest logging. A dirty and destructive form of energy will be subsidised at the expense of genuine renewables. Burning native forest wood for energy generates more greenhouse gasses than coal.
