Garrett axes forest ecology and solders up greenhouse trigger

“Citing community concern Dr Hawke and his panel of experts came up with
a clear and sensible plan to prevent the destruction of endangered
habitats and fragile wildlife ecosystems in Australia’s forests. But

“Garrett has also dumped the long-awaited recommendation of a climate
change trigger. This would have enabled the minister to review
developments which resulted in huge greenhouse gas emissions.”

“Which other minister would turn down recommendations to enhance his or
her power to do their job properly?” Senator Brown asked.
