A QUICK scan of these documents seems to reveal it will be business as usual this year. With regard the environment it looks like they have just added another department, neatly squeezed between existing departments and with boundaries set so as not to upset existing departments, eg FT. Smoke from FT operations will continue as usual. A report will be made for Parliament each year and another will be made publicly available which I assume would be the sanitised version …

    I’ve read some occasional non-sequiturs in TT but Mandy Thompson’s (No 1) has me beat.
    Mandy, could you please explain what you thought was intended by the postings?
    Thank you.

    How do you know when you’re back in Tas?

    Flying back last year from Victoria, plane is above the highest clouds, and I’m looking out the window, down at the cloud mass below us. We’ve got as high as we’re going, somewhere out over Bass Strait. What’s that over there … higher again than us? A bank of wood smoke haze! Coming off the island. It’s such a joke. And this Memorandum of Understanding which gives Forestry the ability to keep on doing it, year in, year out. The Environment Protection Authority? How shameful.

    It might never happen, yet maybe the day will come when the true criminals in this state will be judged and sentenced by the people for the crimes that they sanction. And meanwhile they prosecute people like Geoff Law for being in a public forest!

    True lovers of this island are being increasingly alienated from those who think that current environmental/forestry practices are acceptable.

    Tell that to the people affected, or even worse killed, by fires in Victoria, or even to the people that lost their houses on the East Coast.

    You should be ashamed of yourself and remove your opinion from this discussion group.
