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
Do you remember this Band…..Midnight Oil …..Australia’s Greatest Environmentally Active and Socially Conscious Bands of the late 20th Century.
For those who don’t Remember them or Just want to Reminise Heres a clip… Remember this concerning the aboriginal cause?
His Environmental Activism lead him to become the President of the Australian Conservative Foundation, for wilderness protection. Peter Garrett is now The Shadow Environment Minister….. All Environment Conscious people of Australia rejoiced in what seemed like a coup for the Environment a Saviour has come to the political Void.
But Alas it was all in Vain…. So what was Peter Garrett saying in regards to the Tamar Valley Pulp Mill….You should watch this……
Thousands of people and Peter Garrett Fans are astounded and disheartened the change in attitude of this man…. Have we been lied too for last 20 years or are we being lied too now…It is hard to judge….
This Would have to be biggest Back Flip in History, and although we all understand you need to tow the party line I do Believe
MR PETER GARRETT you NEED to Grow a SPINE!
Because Mr Garrett… you are a Disgrace to this Generation of Australians and the Next…
We Hope and Pray this lack of Backbone is just a rouge to get you in the door where the changes needed to change the Australian Governments record on The Environment can take place….
