Car­bon diox­ide, and veg man­age­ment

Central and North Burnett Times - - OPIN­ION | YOUR SAY -

THE lock­ing up of our forests by the “fake Greens” in their al­liance with Queens­land La­bor re­sulted in the hor­rific bush­fires of this sum­mer.

The loss of lives, both hu­man and an­i­mal, as well as the de­struc­tion of prop­erty was the sec­ond year that huge ar­eas of Queens­land were de­stroyed by the poor man­age­ment of our na­tional parks and state forests.

A Bush­fire Royal Com­mis­sion has been called to in­ves­ti­gate this sum­mer’s fires.

While or­di­nary Aus­tralians are con­cern­ing them­selves with try­ing to keep their busi­nesses and jobs dur­ing Covid-19, the fake Greens are work­ing be­hind the scenes, ad­just­ing fig­ures to suit their re­quire­ments.

Ap­prox­i­mately 830 mil­lion tonnes of car­bon diox­ide was re­leased into the at­mos­phere due to th­ese bush­fires, al­most twice as much as Aus­tralia’s na­tional an­nual emis­sions from in­dus­try, trans­port and en­ergy. Th­ese ex­tra emis­sions will not be counted to­wards Aus­tralia’s emis­sion targets and are in fact “neg­li­gi­ble”.

Ap­par­ently the ex­tra emis­sions from the bush­fires don’t count be­cause the trees grow back to ab­sorb the Co2.

Well I have a mes­sage for Qld La­bor, the mulga that is used to feed cat­tle, grows back as well.

The suck­ers, cleared to re­tain grass­lands, pre­vent run-off and pre­vent ero­sion, grow back as well. It can also be ar­gued that crops and pas­tures, and ev­ery­thing else that is an agri­cul­tural plant ALL ab­sorb CO2 and are in fact car­bon sinks.

The “fake Greens” are us­ing the car­bon diox­ide ar­gu­ment as a frame up to suit their ide­ol­ogy in re­gards to bush­fires ver­sus the agri­cul­tural in­dus­try.

We need to let the gra­ziers and tim­ber cut­ters back into the forests to man­age them prop­erly.

Farm­ers are the true en­vi­ron­men­tal­ists.
