A tree that is felled before it dies of old age will be replaced naturally by another, even grander, tree. A felled younger tree will make way for more, even younger, trees. That’s the way forests work. 

They may take 300 years to reach maturity but unfortunately that expanse of time is beyond Green comprehension. They can think only in terms of their own short life spans, anything beyond that doesn’t count.

A Green’s brain lacks a neuron that computes the timelessness of nature as it applies to future generations of trees, frogs, butterflies and people. 

It’s an arrogance that defies logic.

If Christine Milne has no concept of 300 years, what chance does she have of comprehending three million years. Because, given that expanse of time, her precious old growth tree would have become her hated coal.

So if Milne could cope with the squeals of pain and take an axe to an old growth tree she will have just avoided a future coal deposit.

Everything, including trees and water, is renewable… it’s just a matter of time.

But there I was looking at the same landscape on the 1990’s and it was very well forested with solid wood trees so much so you couldn’t see far except from the high points. Same in NQ when a road is cut through the rain forest the biggest problem is keeping it clear. The rain forest grows back that quickly. I’m… Read more »

Found a note in my letterbox from our greenie council. “SMOKE WAS SEEN COMING OUT OF YOUR CHIMNEY @ 8.03 AM THIS MORNING”. First thought, I didn’t know we were living in Nazi Germany, 2nd thought, what would normally be coming out of my chimney – Smarties perhaps. Give me strength.

there are two sections of the media in Australia those who would follow Clive Palmer to the end of the earth if he said so and stand their looking at him with puppy dog eyes and there are those who no longer even take his his calls they are over playing his silly games.

Tony Eastly on 24 looks to have aged 20 years overnight. Just dawned on him how CP played the ABC like a violin and labor/greens done like a dinner!! Been interesting watching him work. Even took the worlds biggest dope for a ride. Thanks Tony Jones and Mrs. for your part in the ruse.
