The article presents a criticism of the Greens, an Australian political party devoted to environmental policies. It says that they replaced the Democrats who were voted out of office due to a number of scandals, and are also working against them rather than supporting their constituents. It states that a number of policies have already forced the country's fishing industry to decline, and in 2010, the Greens want to halt development near any major waterway. This is described as problematic as 90% of the population lives near the area.
