Forest furnaces lose out in poll

Postby swiper » Tue Jul 19, 2011 1:35 am

AUSTRALIANS oppose wood-fired power stations by a margin of three to one.

Senator Brown has released public opinion polling which supports the decision.
"Australians agree by a three-to-one majority, and the majority gets bigger at the older end of the age spectrum, that forest furnaces should not be accredited as renewable energy," he said.

"I think that's because older people have seen so much destruction of our forests and wildlife habitat in their lifetimes that they feel even more strongly about it."
