Hot off the press

A Broelman cartoon for the Bushwacker blog at Farming Ahead.

'OPINION: Multiple partners with differing agendas a recipe for disaster'
" In addition to the Murray Darling Basin Authority and its plan, there are four state governments with very distinct and at times directly opposing interests; then there is the Council of Australian Governments that has attempted to wrangle the involved states through the Intergovernmental Agreement on Implementing Water Reform in the Murray Darling Basin; with the added Federal oversight of the Council on Federal Financial Relations through its National Partnership Agreement on Implementing Water Reform in the Murray Darling Basin; and, finally, the more than a passing interest in all matters Murray Darling – the Federal Department of Agriculture and Water Resources.

What could go wrong I hear you say, well apparently nothing a bit of heavy-handed earthworks can’t resolve apparently. "

But can't open the link 😟

Love that cartoon....

...... ^ .... Darren, Debbie, Ian, Jay,

Mulga is essential as a drought feed to livestock. Changes to Qld vegetation laws will hit first those who depend on this vertical hay stack in the time of drought. Mulga is a hardy tree that quickly regenerates when the rains come.

If you haven't already, please sign this petition and please keep sharing so all Queenslanders can support mulgaland farmers and communities to be self supporting and not be burdened with onerous regulation.

I honestly believe that the greenies think koalas live in mulga trees. If this government proceeds with this then there needs to be a class action taken against them.

The western country wouldn't have any population or people living there, without being able to push mulga for stock feed.

'Should Australia recognise the human right to a healthy environment? '

Most certainly not!
The author works for Voiceless, a radical animal rights organisation that seeks to remove all animal agriculture through incremental changes. So while giving animals a legal right or "personage" isn't mentioned in this article and while the headline masquerades with the human right to a healthy environment, it is one step back from giving a right to the environment or an environmental feature itself.

The article is presented in loaded terms, taking on the high moral ground mode, avoiding objective thinking that would expose a poor argument. What is a human right to the environment or the morphing to the environment’s right? That is very subjective, based on your worldview. It is very much open to abuse and as a tool for activists to engage in endless lawfare.

What is needed is sound, well thought out and importantly definitive planning & environment laws. For these laws to be fairly administrated and compliance enforced on those who break the law.

Farmers, fishery & forestry are already subjected to competing, complex & duplicating environmental laws. This will only add another dog breakfast that will be difficult to live with.

They should but they need to listen to the landholder that know and understand how to manage the land. Not intercity voters and people in cement offices!

Evidence based, peer reviewed studies, not ideological fairy dust ideas!!
