The Huon Valley Environment Centre and Environment Tasmania are hosting a community forum about wood fired power stations between 12.30-1.30 pm at the Hobart Town Hall on Thursday March the 18th.
Speakers including Alistair Graham (Humane Society International), Dr Peter McQuillan (Utas school of Geography and Environmental Studies) and Will Mooney (Huon Valley Environment Centre) will discuss the potential environmental and community impacts of plans to burn native forests for power generation in Tasmania. Other speakers have been invited and will be announced closer to the date.
With sales of native forest woodchips declining, the Tasmanian forestry industry is desperate to lock in markets to entrench large scale, destructive logging. With an election looming, now is a critical time for Tasmanians to express their concerns and SAY NO TO WOOD FIRED POWER!
