Wow, life does sneak up on you. Here I am strongly disapproving of Adani (rebranded as Bravus) and NSW coal mining and I am missing out on a chance to support one of my heroes.
Which hero? Bob Brown. He is blocking the Chinese who want to put a tailings dam right in the middle of the Tarkine on Tassie’s west coast.
Yes, I know it is hard to believe that an Australian government is selling out rainforest to bulldozers…
Actually, it is not so hard to believe that the Tassie government is selling out the rainforest. After all, it is just a bunch of sticks. No use to anyone?
Now that I think of it, Aussie governments have a fondness for selling off forests, land, water and anything else portable that we thought we owned.
Anyway, spare a thought (and a few dollars) for the Bob Brown Foundation and their stand against the Chinese state-owned miner.
As climate change starts to seriously kick in, we will need all our forests.
