THE RESULTS ARE IN
Today we are halfway through the state government's four year term.
Nature Conservation Council's team of policy experts, including the Blue Mountains Conservation Society, has put together a report card assessing our government's performance for nature.
Thanks to some abysmal actions, including weakening our land-clearing laws, giving the green light to coal mining and subsidising native forest logging, our government has scored a big fail.
As you can see from the environment report card, the NSW government has put nature and our community's health well behind the needs of developers and big business.
This government's worst environmental failures since 2015 include:
- Watering down strong land-clearing laws, which will drive species extinctions and climate change
- Allowing expansion of coal and gas projects on farmland and in special natural areas, including in Sydney's drinking-water catchment
- Subsidising native forest logging, which is driving koalas towards extinction
- Reducing national parks funding, slowing reserve acquisitions to a trickle and reducing conservation work and research
