“GREEN-SPONSORED CARBON FORESTS”
by Viv Forbes, ©2019, Executive Director, The Saltbush Club
(May 15, 2019) — Greens want to replace ancient grasslands and modern croplands with trees. They worship eucalypt weeds while chipping away at the growing space for priceless plants like Mitchell grass, saltbush, mulga, buffel grass, lucerne, wheat, barley, oats, and macadamia.
So we swap grassland, pastures, orchards and paddocks feeding cattle, sheep, people and kangaroos for green-sponsored carbon forests, scrub and woody weeds harbouring wild dogs, wild pigs, wild cats, possums, wait-a-while, rubber vine and lantana.
In this brave new world, shall we chuck another possum on the barbie?
