For Like minded people who like to see-
Social activists have used Social Media Sites to discredit the Shell Oil Company. ABC News24 announced this morning that these activists who were members of Greenpeace set up illegal Shell Sites claiming they were drilling for oil in the Arctic region. This was a highly organised operation with fake media reports of interviews with Shell employees working in the area.
More Green propaganda from Bob Brown in top end
where he was accused of ignoring cultural issues of our Aboriginal youth.
Gunns's future still in limbo.
But can we write them off yet?
How many extended deadlines will it take for a decision to be reached between forestry logging groups and the Green Conservation groups in Tasmania. The extended, on extended, on extended deadline is tomorrow. The whole situation would be laughable except for the importance of the issue for Tasmania's future.
The following two cartoons sum up the current state of play in Tasmania:
from both perspectives of Green's interference.
The Friday deadline for talks on forestry has come and gone and no decision. The group reportedly talked into the night. I am beginning to wonder if the discussions continue even though they know that they will never reach a decision but are paid big money to keep the pretense going.
How long an extension will this group ask for now?
In the meantime Dr Bob Brown is continuing in an activist role.
Hi Dr Caroline,
The question I asked recently about Green candidates standing for NSW Local Government elections - Sept 2012, I found the answer too yesterday. 53 LGA's have Greens candidates, and most of these have multiple Green candidates.
Dr Brown has been doing the rounds of Green groups in NSW, and encouraging local government involvement by the Greens, by getting their voices in councils.
They know that grassroots involvement is a powerful direction in which to go. - Heaven help us.
So he is still allowed to visit the Big Island is he Jeff???
An excellent article in the Examiner this morning gives a very good summary about the timber industry in Tasmania in general and Gunns Pulp Mill in particular for those who are interested.
The Federal Minister for the Environment,Tony Burke, is confident that a decision will be reached in forestry peace talks according to the ABC News.
After two years of talk, talk, talk lets hope that some outcome will be finalised.
Two hundred businessmen met in Scotsdale and spoke about the heart ache their families had endured because of the forestry debate. One man told of how they have had to sell the family car, furniture and now have their home on the market.
These Greens headed by Christine Milne have a lot to answer for.
Gunn's Pulp Mill has stated that people should not write them off yet
I am sure the Green's will not be pleased.
Meanwhile the Court battle continues as Gunns has fallen short on making progress according to their agreement. It was the Green's and their demonstrations that has a case to answer for on this issue as well.
Another group affected by Green's pressure on forestry are the Tasmanian farmers:
GROUPS involved in the forestry peace negotiations say they need another four to six weeks to reach a final agreement.
