Abbott ticks off environmental destruction shopping list

It has been 111 days since the election and Australians are now enjoying the end of year sales, but Tony Abbott’s government has been ticking off a shopping list of 125 environmental destruction approvals for projects.

“Tony Abbott and Greg Hunt are rushing through environmental approvals at a rate of more than one a day,” Greens Leader Christine Milne said.

“They can’t hand back approval powers to the states and weaken environmental protection fast enough for their big business mates, so Tony Abbott and Greg Hunt are rushing through projects with a rubber stamp.

“Open for business is just Tony Abbott’s code for dig it up, cut it down and ship it away. He doesn’t care about protecting the environment.

“Australians expect our governments to closely consider environmental impacts in order to protect threatened species and special places.

“Tony Abbott doesn’t care. He wants to build massive coalmines, coal ports, gas wells and massive developments as quickly as possible.”
