Dont burn native forests for electricity

This is an oldie but a goodie but unfortunately still relevant. one of the crew at vulture jam made this image a few years ago against the national push to get native forest fuelled electricity up and running as a ‘renewable energy’, by the evil forces in government and the logging industry.

Australian Government policy is currently not to allow renewable energy subsidies for native forest wood, but this is under threat. Independent MP Rob Oakeshott has put up a motion to disallow the native forest biomass regulations, supported by fellow independent, Tony Windsor.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 collapse. Protecting native forests is the quickest, safest and cheapest way to help stop climate change
