Australia’s Threatened Species

“Just last week, another eight plants and animals were added to Australia’s list of over 1,800 species at risk of extinction.”

“Mining, logging, land-clearing and global warming are destroying habitat, while governments turn a blind eye. But we can shine a spotlight on them this week.”

“On Thursday, all of Australia’s state and federal environment ministers gather in Melbourne for the first ever national Threatened Species Summit”

Amusingly, this is on the back of Australia’s [anti] Environment Minister Greg Hunt, approving yet another massive coal mine in a prime agricultural location in NSW to be owned by the Chinese, and recently another massive coal mine on the edge of Australia’s [at risk] Great Barrier Reef.

Australia has one of the highest rates of extinction in the world; yet we are still creating new massive mines and are reducing our capacity in clean energy relative to other developed countries in the world.

Our ecosystem is essential for life on this planet to exist. If we kill our ecosystem, we kill our environment; we then kill ourselves. Pitty our small minded Economic Rationalist Governments, who can’t think beyond money, can’t seem to see this.

Tell the Minister for Environmental Destruction Greg Hunt, to stop destroying our environment and piss off and start to take environmental issues seriously!

About Blog of Greg

I consider myself a thinker and I like to discuss everything in life with those around me. Mostly I am serious, sometimes I am funny, and occasionally I am rude. I like to wear my heart on my sleeve and say what I feel, or think! It is important to me to be honest about how I feel and why! I detest pretense, big egos and self importance. I believe that I am no more important than you, and similarly that you are no more important than me! [apparently I should reflect on this more often] This blog is a way of engaging people in different aspects of life; its goal is to present a different view of life and contribute to a broadening of our awareness. While this blog is essentially my opinion, I also understand that there are other opinions out there. Though I encourage discussion, I may “delete” comments that I find are unhelpful, argumentative, or offensive towards myself or another person. Often I write about politics – apparently that is an interest of mine – but I also like to write about other more personal things that affect us in our day to day lives. Along with this blog, I also write to politicians and newspapers; I often present a commentary on my blog about following comments or decisions. That way everyone understands what they have said – and sometimes of course how big a buffoon they are:) Please feel free to comment on my posts, as I would like to hear what you have to say. After all…. Your opinion is just as valid as mine!
