The RET and Forests: What’s the Story?

Moves to include the burning of native forests to generate electricity in the Renewable Energy Target (RET) will be bad for renewables and disastrous for forests.

In a sunburned country, blessed with ample sunshine, we should be treasuring our precious native forests, rather than logging and burning them to make dirty energy.

Our National Forest Campaigner, Warrick Jordan, argues that “including a new incentive for logging high conservation value forests and important wildlife habitat is never going to be worthy of the tag ‘renewable’”.

A poll commissioned by the Wilderness Society showed that everyday Australians are vehemently opposed to including burning native forest as renewable energy (no surprises there) with more than two-thirds of the people polled opposed to the idea.

Our National Director, Lyndon Schneiders, cut through the Government’s spin and noted that including burning forests in the renewables bill has ‘nothing to do with promoting a transition to renewable energy and everything to do with propping up a native forest logging industry.’

The RET Bill has passed the Lower House, and is headed for the Senate in mid-June.

Check out the 10 reasons why burning native forests for electricity should not be included in the RET.

Stop this nonsense!

Please email Victorian Senators Muir and Madigan. Tell them why burning native forests for power is not a good idea, and that as a Victorian, why you don’t support forest destruction being dressed up as a ‘renewable’. Ask them to consider your views when the Bill comes before the Senate and they vote on it.

Sign our petition, and tell the Government today that Australians don’t want our native forests incinerated

‘Today is world environment day’

…There’s a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part, you can’t even passively take part, and you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop! —Mario Savio, Berkeley Free Speech Movement

To gain what is worth having, it may be necessary to lose everything else. —Bernadette Devlin, Irish activist and politician
