Florentine flashpoint set to rebound on Gunns - Greens

26th Nov 07

Greens Leader Bob Brown says logging the world heritage value Upper Florentine forest in central

Tasmania will draw nation-wide condemnation.

“Sending the chainsaws into this fragile forest will be an own-goal against Gunns pulp mill which, in any

case, now faces very rough waters ahead,” Senator Brown said.

“I cannot see Prime Minister Rudd ratifying the Kyoto Protocol one week and justifying Gunns greenhouse

gas monstrosity the next. It would be incomprehensible,” Senator Brown said as Gunns share price

tumbled in the Sydney Stock Exchange.
