The Greens are urging the Albanese Government to stop approving new mines and developments in threatened species habitat to halt extinction and to establish a ‘climate trigger’ to assess the emissions of polluting projects.
The Greens’ push coincides with the long-awaited release of the State of the Environment Report.
Greens Environment Spokesperson Senator Sarah Hanson-Young said:
“This Report is a devastating assessment of the state of Australia’s environment. It shows a litany of environmental wreckage fuelled by climate change and years of denial and neglect.
