NSW Labor offers hope on environment/climate change

“NSW Labor’s plan to protect our environment and address climate change released this morning (28 Feb) is bold on climate change.  It offers hope to the coming generations and leadership on nature conservation.  School children are genuinely concerned about their future and now at least they can look to a major political party prepared to take action. If elected Labor will require a future NSW Government to obtain all of its energy from renewable sources by 2025,” said Keith Muir director of the Colong Foundation for Wilderness.

“Locating pumped-hydro projects in wilderness areas should be taken to mean total war with environment groups,” Mr Muir said.
