GREG HUNT EXPOSED AS A MAN OF STRAW OVER LIVERPOOL PLAINS

GREG HUNT EXPOSED AS A MAN OF STRAW.

The Emperor has no clothes.   Imagine giving approval to Communist China to allow a massive coal mine in one of Australia’s agricultural icons, the Liverpool Plains.    That’s exactly what Greg Hunt, Minister against the Environment has done.  Thus demonstrating once again that neither he nor Abbott have any environmental credibility or intention to address climate change.

Given that Barnaby Joyce is the local MP for the Liverpool Plains area, it’s beyond comprehension that the Coalition partner, the National Party – farmers.. primary producers.. have allowed this appalling approval to go ahead.

After the mountains of spin and bullshit which Hunt delivered to the World Heritage Committee, this decision by Hunt should demonstrate to all and sundry that climate change has no priority in the Abbott government other than as spin.

As if today’s news that the priceless, irreplaceable Liverpool Plains black soil agricultural lands are to be mined isn’t bad enough, we hear the same old story from Hunt.

I’ve imposed the most rigorous conditions in Australia’s history“.

Bullshit.

Today’s Australian has a major article by Murdoch’s foreign correspondent Greg Sheridan slamming the lack of praise for the Abbott government over its management program for the Reef.   Unfortunately, its impossible to find any environmental credentials for Sheridan but nevertheless he has no hesitation in claiming that Greg Hunt should be ” the pin-up boy” of the World Heritage Convention.  ( Buckets please, this is too much).

And worse to come.. ” Although Hunt is one of its better communicators, the Abbott government still has not got the credit for this ( the Reef decision at UNESCO) that it deserves.  This partly reflects the government’s limitations as a story teller and partly the way on environmentally issues especially, the game is stacked against it.”  ( Bigger buckets please).

Finally, we have the best quote of all from Sheridan.  It should be framed.

Media organisations are not fulfilling their obligations to render reality accurately.”  ( Sorry I now need a bath-tub to throw up in).

There’s little doubt that the Liverpool Plains community will fight to its last breath and that a huge majority of Australians will be out there giving l00 per cent support.  This appalling decision must be over-turned – legally, politically and by whatever methods work.

But as an indication of the double dealing dirty policies of the Abbott government and its outrageously poor environment minister, the facts are on the table.

  1. Let them eat coal and all will be well, coal after all is good. That’s what we’re up against so it doesn’t surprise me that precious arable land(this time The Liverpool Plains)should be sacrificed for the aim of producing more climate-changing coal. Of coarse climate-change is not such a big threat to us all as the strangely- notioned scientists would have us believe.Mr Hunt & Abbott have their own free-market fundamentalist beliefs as well and no doubt the free market will be more than ready to solve all problems thrown up by suspect humans. The lack of vision and even conservative thinking (eg)safety and conservation first by Herr Abbott & clique will hurt us all. These anti-human policies of Australia’s prime-minister are doing a great job of converting us from the clever country into the re-neck land down under. The complete lack of positive contribution to humanity and the planetary environment we depend on is ridiculous. We all will be serving the greater good if we can confront this destructive and manipulating politician as much as we can and get him as far away from power as we can. Swinging voters please consider carefully and give tony abbott a wide berth come election time. Also keep getting involved in helping to do the right thing by ourselves and our planet.
