Public Forum – Burning forests for Electricity

Burning Forests for Electricity? Are you serious?
A Public Forum with Senator Bob Brown
Local Federal MP, Martin Ferguson, is backing the woodchippers plan tohave our native forests logged, chipped and then burnt for electricity.
At the State level, the Bracks government broke their election promiseand passed laws to allow this. The Greens understand that our precious, majestic old growth forest is more valuable as a carbon bank than a shipload of woodchips, not to mention the greenhouse gas emissions from burning them for electricity.
Protected forested catchments provide us with our scarcewater supplies.

When: Friday 13 July at 6:30pm.
Where: Northcote Town Hall, in the main hall.
