This motion is a running commentary on decisions of the New South Wales Planning Commission. The Greens political party set back climate change and environmental protection by more than a decade when they voted against Labor's ETS in 2009, and now all they focus on is individual projects, rather than achieving meaningful climate action and environmental reform. In fact, the Greens political party's single-issue campaigns boosted the climate-change-denying coalition vote in regional communities at the last election, further setting back meaningful action on climate change and environmental protection. The Greens political party don't care if the environment and the climate pay the price of coalition election victories. They only care about more votes for the Greens party in the Senate.
