Interesting week for tassie and the forests down there with the Bob Brown Foundation which is trying to end native forest logging – I don’t really understand all the legal arguments to be honest, but its nice to see a voice for the trees and one that has some grunt.
Here’s todays fun fact – did you know that the Dr Seuss book ‘Lorax’ was banned in a school in California because it unfairly portrayed the logging industry
and .. get this.. a rebuttal story was made from a hardwood company..
“When the last tree is cut, the last fish is caught, and the last river is polluted; when to breathe the air is sickening, you will realize, too late, that wealth is not in bank accounts and that you can’t eat money”
here’s a picture of an enlightened tree, in a area of NSW where most the trees seem to be nothing but skeletons of their former selves.
