I recently posted on the Tamar Valley Pulp Mill and voiced my disgust at its approval…. There is a definate double standard running through the Climate and Environment subject here in Australia…Yesterday Kevin Rudd has Announced $200 million dollars to help protect the Great Barrier Reef from dieing…Well Done Mr Rudd a Worthy cause.
But still no one from either of the political parties has come out against this Mill why?
Arent the People of Tasmania worthy of clean air, clean water, food, soil?
Aren’t our endagered creatures worth as much as the animals on the Mainland or is it the fact that Tasmania has a population of less than 500,000.
I do feel it is the latter?
I am trying very hard not to be politically bias however on this subject I am not being given much choice. The only party willing to stand up for us at the moment is the Greens and Bob Brown. They have stated they will not be handing over preferrences to either party in Tasmania this is terrific start….
Come on people help stop fellow Australians being poisoned slowly by yet another Gunns initiative… For those of you who don’t know whatc happening check out http://aussiecynic.com/?p=209
