We are against the proposed bills. They will increase land clearing in NSW; the state was doing well compared to Queensland, but this would be a big step backwards.
It is laughable to allow farmers to judge for themselves whether land is worth conserving or not.
All areas would now be under threat of clearing, even very vulnerable and protected ones.
The number of extinctions of flora and fauna will rise, soil erosion will grow and greenhouse gas pollution will grow.
Please do not go ahead with these bills.
