Formatted abstract
Climate change and loss of biodiversity have emerged as serious environmental
problems in Australia and internationally. Australian governments
have introduced laws designed to address these problems, including laws
that restrict, and in some cases prohibit, tree clearing. Although regulation of
tree clearing is needed to reduce emissions and protect biodiversity, there
has been an overreliance on tree clearing bans by the Australian government
as a means of meeting Kyoto targets, thereby reducing the need for emission
cuts in other sectors. This article addresses recent legal, political and social
developments in this area, and suggests a move towards a middle ground
that provides for limited clearing in a sustainable manner, accompanied by
emission cuts in other sectors.
