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.
