Wilderness Society goes feral …

The Green’ cunning threat to the Prime Minister. What is it about the Greens and threats to anyone, or thing, that disagrees with them? A target for all the loonies out there, a big pink house! This was their e-mail, today:

Dear Tom,

We have a cunning plan, and we need your help.

Now that BP has done the decent thing and backed out of the Bight, we want Malcolm Turnbull to play his part in protecting this pristine marine sanctuary from Big Oil. Forever.

Companies like Santos and Chevron still hold exploration leases. We want the federal government to rescind them and ban oil and gas development in the Great Australian Bight. So here’s the plan:

We’ll put a billboard asking Malcolm Turnbull to protect our backyard… in his backyard. (That’s Malcolm’s house there in pink.)

Malcolm’s a busy man. The best way to put oil drilling on his mind is to put oil drilling in his backyard. When he sees this billboard in his Prime Ministerial ocean patch, he’ll spit his morning moccachino. We think the media will go crazy for it, too.

Can you chip in?

(No fracking way, bullies! ed)

If we’re going to make headlines, we can’t afford to do this by halves. So we need people like you to chip in whatever you can to help us hit our funding target of $25,000.

CHIP IN

Every little bit helps us take this important message mainstream.

Please donate and help us put our floating billboard in front of the Prime Minister’s Point Piper waterside mansion.

If you’re as excited as we are, forward this email to your friends and family. The sooner we hit our target, the sooner we can make our big splash.

Yours for nature,

Lyndon Schneiders
National Campaigns Director
The Wilderness Society

Chip in? Seriously? Maybe now Chairman Mal might decide that his own Green Agenda was wrong, and instead wake up to the idea the skeptics have the science right. After all, the science says that fracking’s fine, too.

The Greens are a danger to us all. Maybe a drilling rig or three outside Lyndon’s place would be in order.

I think some of those that live in the area will be mighty pissed off, Malcolm resides at The Prime Minister’s Lodge in Canberra!

A Green’s shot in the foot moment, this idea of theirs.

So who is the neighbour that is going to see rigs from this?:

Update, this is what the Greens call Utopia.

About Tom Harley

Amateur ecologist and horticulturalist and CEO of Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Inc. (Tom Harley) Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Incorporated Kimberley Environmental Horticulture (KEH) is a small group of committed individuals who promote the use of indigenous plants for the landscaping of parks and gardens. Rehabilitation of Kimberley coast, bushland and pastoral regions are also high on our agenda. This includes planting seedlings, weed control, damage from erosion or any other environmental matter that comes to our attention. We come from all walks of life, from Professionals and Trades oriented occupations, Pensioners and Students, Public Servants and the Unemployed. We have a community plant nursery where we trial many old and new species, with a view to incorporating these into our landscaping trials. Our labour force are mainly volunteers, but with considerable help from the 'work for the dole' program, Indigenous Community Development Employment Program (CDEP) groups and the Ministry of Justice, with their community work orders; in this way we manage to train many people in the horticultural skills needed for indigenous plant growing. We constantly undertake field trips that cover seed and plant collection in the Kimberley. Networking around the Kimberley region and the east Pilbara is a necessary part of promoting our activities. We consult on a range of Environmental and Landscaping matters that deal with our region. Our activities involve improving Broome's residential streetscapes by including 'waterwise' priciples in planting out nature strips. Sustainable environmental horticulture is practised by members of our group. We use existing vegetation as the backbone of any plantings, using these species to advantage when planning to develop tree forms or orchards. The Broome region is sensitive to development. Subsequently many weed species have become dominant in and around developed areas. The use and movement of heavy machinery is the biggest single cause of environmental degradation. We dont live in a 'Tropical Paradise' but on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert. The plants that survive best here, grow in well-drained pindan sand, and are found from the Dampier Peninsular southward to where average rainfall is below 600mm. When we use rainforest species, detail is important when planting, water catchment, sunlight and understorey species are all considered. The use of recycled 'grey' water is an advantage here as well as treated waste-water, although many local species do not fare well with nutrients from this source. We use waterwise planting methods which include harvesting asmuch rainwater as possible, with swales designed to hold up to 200 litres, to help recharge the local groundwater aquifer. There has been a serious decline in this aquifer over the last few years. With the fast expansion of the Broome peninsular, more and more land is being covered by concrete, iron and bitumen so that much less water is available to replenish the aquifer, allowing the salt content to become significantly higher. The small Broome Peninsular is on the south-western corner of the Dampier Peninsular (bound by Broome, Derby and Cape Leveque at the northern tip). Compaction by vehicles also inhibits water retention due to the content of our local pindan sand, hard as concrete in the dry, going to soft and sloppy mud after rain. None of us are botanists, inevitably we have got some names wrong, names changed, or have not gone to sub-species level.
