Urgent action is needed to protect Australia’s forests and Renewable Energy Target

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. Can you help further by sharing the petition by email or on Facebook today? It is urgent that we act now to protect Australia’s forests and our Renewable Energy Target.
