Never has there been such a disillusioned audience for a Federal election. Among the personal vilification and slap stick dialogue where are the policies, leadership, national vision, selflessness for their constituents and the good of the nation? Tweedle dumb and tweedle dee, focused on their pensions salary and benefits for life they have not mentioned how youth will be employed, the elderly grey party will be catered for in their retirement, the invalid cared for, the school children, assisted with logistics of educating in a fast moving world, university students heading oversees to avoid the abominable HECS destroying ideas of professions such as doctors, dentists, nurses, large animal vets……. . A few boat loads of refugees have taken the emotive attention of the media and the people.
Do either of these parties know there is a rural Australia out here that is not carved up for dehabited subsidised wilderness tourist destination blatantly, unashamedly buying swinging votes for a public sector well out of control harvesting public and national assets for their own agendas. Farmland is fair game for city water, city carbon off sets, water diversions, biodiversity corridors, coal mines, gas fracking, iron ore, bullet trains, highways down river flats and across farm infrastructure, confiscation for another tree planting program on crop land, government grant where school children are used as volunteer labour recruited like Hitler Youth. The grant holder gets $1 a tree to confiscate cropland declared “over cleared” by people largely unqualified to judge.
Travel routes and farmland smothered in trees crammed in at fire danger and moisture stress proportions while forests confiscated and abandoned for national park, wilderness, city water catchment burn down billions of trees taking rural communities and towns with them. Who wants to become a volunteer fire fighter??? Your own fire insurance premiums and fire levies buying your equipment to join the folly of facing the Labour Green holocaust, conserved lovingly for decades. Oozing toxins into the city water to blend with fluoride, chloride skinning babies, the elderly for taking a bath or shower, every frog and fish species fresh water or ocean going skinned by soaps, insecticides, tannins leaching out of the cesspit of locked up forests denied the basics of care. Decades worth of toxic leaf litter rotting into the water ways tanning the insides and outsides of the people and wildlife.
Peter Garrett, Tony Burke, Mark Butler are some of the line up Arts Law debating city based educated experts on the environment, paper tigers on grazing systems, fisheries, forest care, Murray water reform down wind and excluding the protected areas of the incinerated alps inflows of the Murray. Incinerated canopy burn excised from Murray reform because it was “protected?” In fact chronically neglected. Garrett closed down areas of CSIRO immediately after the Victorian inferno killing 173 people burning down 2000 homes incineration of millions of hectares some repeatedly 2002-9. The people of Australia denied an informed Bushfire Royal Commission on why this happened. Don’t kid yourself Australia you have an objective fearless peer reviewed scientific community observing the interests of the people. Pop Star Polly ‘sang’ to bushfire victims. Most survivors still live in caravans and leantoos. Boffins and bureaucrats environmental activists waltz off with their generous pensions. The Environmental Protection Biodiversity Conservation Act weapon of the Rio Earth Summit includes a Species Obituary List grows the endangered species captive breeding program on policy failure and deception of Hitler Youth.
What has all this got to do with food security. High country drought aid grazing for flocks and herds has been turned into blazing of biodiversity and more junkets for universities at the ski resorts. Dynasties of boffins analysing ecological artefacts of wilderness their own concoction on the public purse. Snow is made these days on resort waste water because orographic snow and rain finds vast canopy burnt forests unattractive. The people of Australia have been denied understanding of these things because Bob Hawke closed down CSIRO Cloud Physics in 1983 because Bob wanted a mineral boom pulling Australia off the sheep’s back. Dust and fumes poured into the rain clouds over south east Australia cutting off the rain and snow. Enhancing lightening lit fires in the mountains of mulch accumulated by experts.
