Good news on the Environmental front. The Greens lost, according to this email request for more money. No, I wont be donating $10 or even $1, but I am thankful the loony Queensland Government lost this vote! Resign now, is all I can say.
You see, I like the extra CO2 emissions, they are a massive benefit to our economy, not your negative, failed scaremongering of farming communities. It’s no wonder you lost, people are waking to the scam.
WE WON’T LOSE ANOTHER ROUND
This week, we lost. Independent MPs sided with the opposition in Queensland’s parliament, cutting down a bill to restore sensible tree clearing laws in the state.
Since the Campbell Newman Government demolished the laws back in 2013, 1,000,000 hectares of trees have been cleared.
If you saw our report on tree clearing, you’ll know how that affects Australia’s CO2 emissions. Not to mention the copious native animal habitat destroyed. Or the extra sediment that now runs freely onto our irreplaceable Great Barrier Reef.
We know we can win this, because we’ve succeeded many times before. And, as always, the science lies firmly on our side.
WILL YOU DONATE $10 TO HELP US BUILD A FIGHTING FUND?
Our organising teams are ready to activate the Queensland community:
- We’re already pursuing a range of legal options
- We’re working closely with federal parliament, urging it to step in
- We’re uniting the international community to protect both our climate and Reef.
All we need is your help.
MAKE YOUR $10 DONATION NOW
Thanks for your support. As the fight for sustainable tree clearing laws in Queensland continues, we’ll keep you up to date with all the important developments.
Yours for nature,
