Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 30 2008
16 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, July 31, 2008 SAVING THE PLANET www.innerwestweekly.com.au Kids plant the seeds of success Burwood Mayor John Faker plants a tree with the help of his daughters Taylor and Jasmine. BURWOOD Council is celebrating the record turnout of more than 130 people who planted 140 trees at Henley Park, Enfield as part of National Tree Day last Sunday. The day is Australia's biggest community tree-planting event. Burwood Council was again proud to participate. Trees planted on the day in- cluded natives such as allocasuarina torulosa (forest oak), syncarpia glomulifera (tur- pentine) and melaleuca quinquenervia (broad leafed paper bark), all of which are predominantly indigenous to the local area. The event aimed to inspire and educate Australians to care for the environment and make the world a greener place. Burwood Council has contrib- uted to the number of native plants propagated in the local area by taking part in this tree planting exercise. Burwood Mayor John Faker was delighted with the number of supporters who participated in the event. The Lions Club treated volun- teers on the day to barbecue lunch. National Tree Day events were also held at other centres as Majors Bay Reserve, Concord, Boat Harbour, Hurlstone Park and Hudson Park Oval, Strathfield. The Strathfield event was de- scribed as a fun-filled day for the whole family. A good roll up of members from the Rotary Club of Strathfield ensured that the sausage sizzle, provided by Strathfield Council, was always operating to feed the hungry tree planters. New Strathfield Rotary president Grahame True said he was par- ticularly pleased with the good response from club members. He said he was happy with the fellowship that was always part of working with the local com- munity. Forum for a green change THE Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme Green Paper will be dis- cussed at a change forum for the Grayndler electorate. The green paper proposes a plan to combat climate change; it will increase power bills 16 per cent, gas by 9 per cent and produce and petrol will only be temporarily off- set. Grayndler Federal Labor MP Anthony Albanese, who organised the forum, said it was important for people to know how much more they will pay, and what compensation they might be en- titled to. ''There is no cost free way to tackle climate change,'' he said. ''The Carbon Pollution Re- duction Scheme is the most ef- ficient, lowest cost and most econ- omically responsible way to reduce the carbon pollution that is causing climate change.'' At the forum Dr Ben McNeil from the University of NSW Cli- mate Change Research Centre will identify climate change issues and challenges. Federal Climate Change and Water Minister Senator Penny Wong will outline the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme, ''which will essentially put a price on carbon,'' Mr Albanese said. The green paper is the most recent Rudd Government initiat- ive following the ratified the Kyoto protocol and renewable en- ergy target for 2020. ''Avoiding dangerous climate change is the greatest challenge for our generation and we all have a role to play,'' Mr Albanese said. ''I encourage everyone who can to come to this forum, it will be an important and informative event for Grayndler.'' The change forum is on Tuesday, August 5 from 7.30pm at Petersham RSL.
