But has it? – Who are challenging the vested interests? – Clandestine Ministerial advisory committees
The American Sierra Club was formed in 1892 political lobby group to expand the bushwalking academics empire across America based on this mythical being of John Muirs so called wilderness, purposely dehabited of Indians, farmers, foresters, fishing communities. Antarctica of 100 years ago was about the only uninhabited wilderness. Most other land across the globe had humanity as an integral part of the ecology. The wilderness mob are quite an elitist antisocial mob on a cop out for the city experiment were in 1800 there were only 2% of the human population living in town today there is over 47% and where in 1800 there were the first billion people, doubled by 1930 and now 7.2 billion and still rising. While ever the greedy escape to ‘wreckreate’ in rural well managed areas the city despot is not being addressed.
As more land grabs occur for the global national park empire there is less ability to move on a shrinking agricultural ecology and spell it. Farmers, foresters fishermen ripped off for their produce such their ability to look after the land and water is diminished. Boffins and bureaucrats try to wedge into the food chain with their not so good expertise foisted on the unwary. Rural minorities are forced into end on end production to pay the bureaucrats and boffins to oversee the food chain no doubt. Cities are invariably social concentration camps set over river mouths that used to be clean and fed the people. Not so today. Australia has perhaps the lowest population density. Pick any capital city and tell me if you’d drink the water straight from the river flowing through town. Brisbane? Hunter? Hawksbury? Georges? Molongolo? Murrumbidgee below Canberra? Yarra, as it meets Port Phillip, the lower Murray, Swan?
- Would you drink from any of them?
- Would you eat the today fish?
- Would you go today swimming?
The Thames and Rhine are probably cleaner from where most of our environmental activists come from passaged through university indoctrination systems.
Tank Stream was the reason Sydney was located there. Tank Stream was bricked in by 1820 after use only since 1788 by Europeans. Aboriginal people came and went for about 60000 years previous and the water was fine sweet and clean, spelled and looked after with civic pride. 200 years on Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide want to inflict their behaviours on the Snowy. Try drinking around the tourist resorts and ski fields. Follow the blow flies to the camping area toilets.
