Outraged Greens opt for open ticket as Labor and Coalition support Gunns

Posted by waterweek on 10 October 2007

Federal Environmental Minister Malcolm Turnbull said it was not appropriate for the commonwealth to assess the greenhouse gas emissions from individual projects, such as the proposed pulp mill in Tasmania, as this was better dealt with by a national emissions trading regime, reported The Australian Financial Review (5/10/2007, p. 10).

Environmental outrage, say Greens: Tasmanian Premier Paul Lennon welcomed the decision as a “victory for common sense”. Greens senator Bob Brown said that for the first time the party would run an open ticket in Tasmania, refusing to direct preferences to either major party after their support for an “environmental outrage”.
