TFGA's mill support 'dangerous' for farmers – Brown

The Tasmanian Farmers and Growers Association is undermining its members' futures by backing Gunns' proposed pulp mill, Greens Leader Bob Brown said today.
"The pulp mill will worsen climate change. It would be a huge net producer of greenhouse gases and an added hit on drought-wielding climate change, which is the biggest single threat to rural Tasmanian's prosperity," Senator Brown said.
"The TFGA has allowed passing investment in managed investment schemes for plantations to obscure the huge threat of climate change and this mill to all primary producers," Senator Brown said.
