Greens worship woody weeds. Their proposed tree-clearing bans in Queensland are the latest salvo in a long war favouring trees and damaging grasslands and pastoralists.

For millennia Australia’s open forests and treeless plains have supported our national emblems – the kangaroo and the emu, which in turn sustained aborigines, eagles and dingos. Australian grasslands also nurtured now-endangered species such as bustards, quail, pigeons, finches and grass parrots.

Nothing stands still in nature. Savannas are forever a battleground between grassland, scrub and desert. Greens gaze in rapture at the trees but ignore the valuable grasses beneath their feet – native plants like Mitchell Grass and Kangaroo Grass and cultivated grasses like wheat, barley, oats, sorghum and sugar cane.

Greens hate grazing animals like cattle and sheep (but not wildebeest!) and, like trained parrots, repeat the hard-hoof fairy-tale about soil compaction and erosion. In reality, hoof action breaks crusty soil. 

A short burst of concentrated animal impact with hoof cultivation, seed burial, and application of dung and urine fertilisers does wonders for the long-term health of the pasture. It is not a question of hard hooves or soft paws – it is a grazing management question. A healthy pasture needs grasses, herbs, legumes and periodic grazing animals – shut out the ruminants, or stock heavily and continuously, and you will get weeds and desert.

Greens favour “Do Nothing Pasture Management”. Along with their bans on mechanical or chemical control of tree invasions, they try to prevent busfires which have for millennia maintained the vigour of the grasslands. To have healthy pasture requires recycling of nutrients from old dead grass before the summer rains. This is best achieved by concentrated short-term hoof impact or by controlled burning (both of which may also kill tree seedlings that are forever trying to invade the grasslands).

Greens are always nibbling away at grasslands and open forests by demanding ever more nationalised parks, conservation zones and other green blockades. Instead of supporting graziers with their productive pastures and grazing animals they create ever-expanding sterilised un-managed areas which become havens for weeds like lantana, prickly pear, cactus and wait-a-while and pests like feral dogs, wild pigs and wild cats.

Proposed new Queensland laws will hinder landowners in harvesting mulga scrub during drought and controlling invasion of grasslands by woody weeds. These destructive green bans plus the unjust Kyoto tree-clearing land seizures are part of the global Green plan to drive farmers and graziers from much of the land.

The great value of ruminants is their efficiency in converting the vegetation of poorer grasslands and open forest into edible proteins and fats. ALP/Green policies will reduce the supply of this truly free-range food and increase our dependence on feedlot food, which is worse for the environment and our health.

And for those who believe the greenhouse warming fable, grassland plants remove the bogey-man (carbon dioxide) from the atmosphere. This carbon collected by grazing animals ends up in long-term storage in human bodies via meat and other animal food products. At the end of their life, most human bodies get sequestered in carbon-based coffins and buried in carbon cemeteries. 

Greens should be happy with that, but the plant world will gradually suffer from this relentless loss of the gas of life from the biosphere.

The bureaucracy of our “Brave New Green World” will use drones, spy cameras and computer programs to trap and punish any grazier who dares to defend his grassland from invading trees.

Instead of tree clearing bans we need to free our land managers for a war on woody weeds using controlled burning, better grazing management and reversal of the unjust Kyoto land sterilisation program.

O/T Sorry…. Has this been posted before? but I have just received it from my Elected Politician telling me the Dual Citizenship has all been declared by all Politicians, This is the Link.. Take a look at the first two Abbott and Albanese , Abbotts filled out professionally and signed, Albanese looks like he got a child to fill out his and not answer all the answers or even sign it, These people are a complete Joke.

The ABC is Green-socialism personified. It supported Turnbull in preference to Abbott; it supports Shorten in favour of Turnbull; and it supports Di Natalie in favour of Shorten. Get the drift? Don’t believe me? Just watch the very pointed summations after House of Representatives Question Times, and QANDA’s Tony Jones’ crafted question selection, nominated panel responders, alloted response times and summary cut-offs. Even their news reports are slanted toward Green ideology. If they were dinkum and balanced they would acknowledge the damage done to outback Australia by eons of uncontrolled, human lit bushfires that have destroyed vegetation and caused the… Read more »

Unlike the stupid anti Trump media (and SillyB) Trump knew that the major victim in a trade war would be political stability in China. He knew Xi would capitulate to keep hold of power. It was always about gaining access to the closed Chinese markets. And Xi blinked first.

Beating the war drum again eh Israeli. Syria is a sovereign state that is not partitioned, much to the dislike of Israel and their American puppet. Government control is being re-established district by district. Illegal occupiers of Syrian land like America and Turkey must withdraw. America has designs on the Syrian oil resources of Deir -ez- Zor. Syria is no corpse but an ancient land where life is returning to normal in the areas liberated by the Government. ISIS and other terrorist groups exist only under American protection. This fake chemical attack on Douma is being used by the neo… Read more »

Was I the only one to notice the “I’m so clever” smirk on Melvin’s face when he denied, denied and DENIED that the question of reducing immigration was ever ever raised in Cabinet? It was a case of classic lawyerspeak – he knew that what he was saying, while technically correct, was a total lie – but a lie he could wriggle out of later because the denial was carefully worded so that later, he could say that “technically”, what he said was not a lie.

Channel 9 A Current Affair showed how Beattie has stuffed the Gold Coast with his Commonwealth Games. Empty streets and eatin joints, well done. He was on the tube saying they still had tickets for sale, is he pulling them out of his arse. As it has turned out they didn’t need the VIP lanes. On the walk this morning I see they are putting stickers on cars ‘will be towed at owners expense’ as they are on or near the mathathon course. Well done, ratepayers and residents can get stuffed.
