Bushmen on horseback return to Wonnangatta station on a meagre allowable rescue campaign harassed and bullied by the ignorant of migrant Melbourne gang green committee stackers and political extortionists.
The once beautiful open bio-diverse forests have all but been buried by blackberry and 25 years of neglect, negligence and incompetence. The wildflowers including orchids have been long buried in piles of toxic gum leaves and rank dead grass garnished with fallen timber, few species of scrawly scrub trying to find sunlight in the ‘fire time bomb’ of “dirty dead bushland.”
Prince Charles would have known a very different scene when he came for schooling in old Australia cherished every inch of it loved and looked after. When bushwalkers could roam with a backpack through the bush not forced to follow a bulldozed fire access scraped invasively across the landscape!
Introduction – Mal Davies
We are sure of our facts, Noeline Farnklin is sure of the science, so the display of panic amongst the well funded PhD’s and activist who have created a trail of false scientific breadcrumbs to appease masters is now confirmed. As we see experienced high country cattlemen dating 180 years experience, who delivered the Snowy Mountain land a pristine condition environment under cattle grazing to government some 60 years ago which then started the lockup of public land requiring generated green science agenda to sustain funding and total control.
Confirmation that a serious unrestricted trial would expose cattle grazing is a required part of eco system and biodiversity management triggered panic stations across the greens and engineered science camps. If a level playing field were to be set in place this would expose massive lies, collusion, and fictional science – certain to bring down decades of mismanagement taxpayer funding to face accountability and investigations that will shut down many gravy trains on your money.
So the cattle trial rules were carefully designed for certain failure, but a much more aware public is watching today and see the decimation to their public land under current MYTH-Management and Noeline Franklin certainly delivers with knowledge and passion a blow to this sham that if conducted correctly would change environmental government thinking to recover the bloody mess they have made on fictional science .
Stockmen are allowed return to depreciated Wonnangatta after a long period of negotiating and pleading, with just 60 experimental cattle to a valley over 10000 hectares of grassed valley floor, open bush and alpine snow gum ecologies of Mt Howitt that was offered eco-services of 1200 cattle to maintain the beauty and serenity of the region. Feed the wildlife and wildflowers, make fire safe the clean beautiful streams alpine herb infused sweet water. Just a token 60 not the 2000+ required to try and retrieve the situation of vegetation chaos as a matter of urgency. Every summer is a bonus for work to retrieve Wonnangatta from certain destruction. Burn the soil the remaining seed, the rocks, the forest the chronic dysfunction of dirty bush from the strangle of fanaticism. The Claytons salvation! Political greed and academic ignorance.
“Feral exotics” lurking in the bowels of parliament parasitising the hallways of democracy have told stockmen not to let their “chomping bovines” stray from the formed road! Cattle are to camp confined “on the road” and the “park staffers are to pick up the cattle dung.” For their gardens? How quaint. While they are at it follow the bushwalking boffins and bureaucrats with a shovel and “poopa-scoopa” plastic bag. By order the gang green Gestapo townie twits with abused public privileged paid positions.
Jackbooted neo-Nazi’s that live down there in the city haze, the plastic filled Yarra experts on water quality, wildflowers including donkey orchids, the wildlife diets of their naturalised dingo wilderness guard dog delivering ‘no graze policies’ to an Australia that coevolved with mega marsupial fire fighters. About 20 species of big herds of migratory 3 tonne wallowing, tree ripping wombats. 95 species of kangaroo to 300 kilograms, also capable of tearing down branches 3 metres into the canopy and creating that essential open fire safe forest. Where were the micromanaging bureaucrats then fencing out their grazing, photographing their tracks and wallows, writing science fiction in the papers pretending these big animals did not exist. Australia was made for foreign migrants with “breeding, class and education.” Canberra and Melbourne well born dictate terms about how Australia should be destocked and burnt down!
Repeated warnings to the foreign academy of science they are on the wrong tram track with fire policy building the bonfire to obliterate biodiversity and water supply have been ignored knowingly, culpably, disastrously for Australia their adopted country and controlled pier review. Public funded commissioned science is a lucrative industry jealously guarded to provide highly paid government departments full of careers perfecting indecision and inactivity for the sake of media spin building the inferno with the help of a journo indoctrinated at the same university so they can be comfortable with their earnest and forceful opinions without the credentials to judge.
Commissioned science is a closely guarded lucrative vested interest for the selected and indoctrinated dynasty. There are and have long been very blurred distinctions between those calling themselves impartial, independent, unbiased academics, environmentalist and lobbyists or activists priming the funding pumps. Commissioned sciences conclusions seem to be known about by lobbyists before the general public paying for the ‘research.’ In fact there seems to be a conclusion required before the science is funded? Could governments be paying for the independent unbiased science it wants to hear? Are public and national assets used to buy votes? More and more people are asking the questions each summer as Australia burns, taxes are diverted hijacked away from essential services into the pockets of yuppies and committee junkies ski resort bar flies.
The hard hoof haters cocoon themselves in suburbia plied with the nations water supplies sucked out of languishing forests denied basic eco-services of mown grass, cultivated flower gardens, pruning aggressive scrub, fire exits and mitigation of fuel, weeding, pest animal control. The chomping and ripping done by packs of naturalised Asian dingo savage killers designed to deliver no graze policies of city water demands and whimsical wilderness for the convenience of tram drivers and town planners living in dysfunctional urban jungles like caged chooks. The bush land grabs are designed for maximal profits for minimal expenditure, at the long term cost of the environment. The smoke free, cow pooh free vista waiting for the convenience of a weekend wander, the intrepid traveler to the Australian bush following selflessly in the footsteps of pioneers in their $100000+ 4WD running over any lizards or wallaby surviving salvation, starvation, predation, incineration political chips converting national assets to swinging extorted votes from the “public serve us.” Yes environmentalism is all about little ‘me’ what the environment can do for ‘me,’ my convenience, my profit and my salvation providing a career good cause.
Head quarters of Australian Academy of Science is surrounded by suburban sprawl irrigated mown green lawns, trimmed hedges, artificial lakes and fountains, moats reminiscent of medieval castles and stone age Neolithic bunkers to deliver some sense of familiarity, habitat enrichment to the flat earth society inhabitants having difficulty adjusting to life down out of the trees. The difference being these lounge lizards, cage raised mammals have forgotten humanity has been able to understand and control fire for most of the last 1.2 million years. Still they are in denial. How the ‘Canberra Cotter inferno’ came about in 2003 remains a mystery to them as they head over the hill to massacre more Brumbies and draw their water supplies from the grazed green fire safe alpine valleys of the Upper Murrumbidgee. Made fire safe by cattle, horses and a long history of sheep, funding the removal of ‘feather and fur industry’s’ little soft footed rabbit that so expertly dug up, over grazed, washed and blew away Australia. All has been forgotten by the “Myxo men” and their academic following now living in 39 universities mushrooming up across the nation soaking up pest animal control budgets, weeding, fire control on their land claims.
Just 60 cattle have been allowed back to offer a retrieval program to Wonnangatta. Not even 2 cows per university! Set among the irrigated mown green lawns, fountains, moats, dripping taps all made possible by the locked up man made wilderness set to burn by a tyranny of denial, deprivation, chronic neglect and negligence, asset stripping dehabition of the people that loved it cared for it selflessly.
People calling themselves environmental activists have a clear double standard value system. Build the bonfire out there in the wilderness. In town we want mown green watered vegetation. Farmers produce levies and food, export earning which is creamed off for research to sabotage the very source of the finger food, wine and cheese parties. Sheep and cattle stations once beautifully manicured gardens where wildflowers, clean water, abundant wildlife were the norm are confiscated for suburbia, cemented drains and “battery hen” accommodation for the slaves with a mortgage and multiple mansions for yuppies.
Children are snatched from their parents arms from 5 years old for decades of indoctrination, selection of personnel in a procedure images that of “Hitler Youth”, screened to join the university ski club, to band together and burn down their adopted nation. Dig up and gas frack the farms to finance their party politics when there is no more farmers to milk for food, busted by floating dollars and free trade agreements, the dingoes have been bred up in the wilderness to eat the sheep, the woollen mills have closed down. The steel, car, canning industry sold out to pay interest on the foreign debt generated by an extravagant bureaucracy paying themselves highly for indecision and inactivity in a wilderness of their own concoction.
Stuff called science has gone off into fairy land. Data sets collected by the dynasty from the ecological artefact engineered man made thing called wilderness, destocked, dehabited except for exclusive yuppies rorting public assets to provide nice subsidised summer and winter holidays at the resorts, eating rack of lamb roast beef irrigated wine and cheese, fruit platter, side salad ……… Australian sheep production has been syphoned of over $12 billion dollars in research levies 1935-2014 poured into the comfort funds of boffins marshalling themselves into environmental activists groups conveniently misdiagnosing the effects of rabbit plague over grazing and the sheep that fed, clothed employed them build their cities and grand mansions, kept their water supplies fire safe sowed the wildflowers fed the wildlife recovering from dingo introduction from Asia 3500 years ago. Blackberry, cane toads, carp will look forward to their naturalisation ceremony as the megafauna extinction program continues on instituted by the blow in boffins and bureaucrats hard hoof haters hijacking the Ministers committee advisory junkies and flunkies set to be the feral exotics looking to burn down, dig up, exploit Australia gone to the dogs.
Stockmen of the high country are so impressed with city water management they see the same management approaches being imposed on more victims as city values move to the bush. Throw away water bottles fill polluted cemented in drains once pristine fisheries remote wilderness like the rest of Australia inhabited by Aboriginal people for up to 60,000 years. Clean bush, clean water and air. The tram drivers, academic experts, town planners have done themselves proud turning Port Phillip into a cesspit so nice everyone needs a high country retreat stolen off rural minorities by blow in experts because they said they were by massaging law books to legitimising theft. Why would you try to rescue Wonnangatta valley from people with such a great track record on environmentalism? Why aren’t the ski resort scientist turning around this mess before off ‘saving Wonnangatta’ with more of their neglect?
