Scientists continue to reveal that climate change is surging dangerously ahead.
A very heartfelt thanks to the environmentalists and community activists for tending to the rights of nature in the Byron Shire. In particular, Dailan Pugh for the in-depth ecological research he has offered the community and Byron Council.
Thanks to the Butler Street community and Paul Jones for the ongoing struggle to prevent the Byron Bypass, which will ensure the final destruction of the wetlands that nurture our waterways.
I thank the volunteers at the Byron Environment Centre who’ve been treated with unfeeling dismissiveness by Byron Council.
I do NOT thank aspirant politician Ben Franklin for ignoring the rights of nature and for boastfully using taxpayers money to seal the fate of the bypass. What are you doing for climate change? Can you prevent the development and destruction of West Byron?
Thanks, Ian Cohen, for reminding us of the remarkable work of Anudhi Wentworth, a blind councillors with the greatest vision for the Byron Shire. A woman whom right-wing counsellors tried to get rid of using the excuse of her blindness (shame!) but it was her boldness and spirit that they really wanted to quell!
