It is refreshing to see the Greens and in particular Senators Christine Milne & Rachel Siewert working to keep farmers on the land and rural and regional communities healthy and vibrant.
“The Greens are committed to keeping farmers on the land. If our rural and regional communities are to survive and thrive in today’s world, they need to be economically, socially and environmentally sustainable.
Christine Milne and Rachel Siewert have established a Senate Inquiry into Climate Change and Agriculture that is examining how Australian agriculture can thrive in a climate changed world, both adapting to the changes and providing solutions to reduce emissions”
The Greens policy of Farming Renewable Energy is sensible and forward thinking. Senator Milne is to be commended in her efforts to protect Rural and Regional Communities against the blight of the tax driven Managed Investment Schemes.
The Greens would have a lot more credibility in mainstream Australia if they had more politicians like Christine Milne. Unlike Senator Milne, Greens Senate leader Bob Brown does nothing for the Greens image in Rural and Regional Australia.
“The alternative-waiting for a lead from the rest of the world-will sacrifice the Great Barrier Reef, Ningaloo Reef, Kakadu and the Australian Alps in the short term, and threatens a 10-metre rise in sea levels, obliterating the Sydney Opera House foyer, Melbourne’s Docklands, Hobart’s Salamanca Place and the current habitat of millions of Australians.”
Google “Raving Climate Change Hysteria”. What you’ll get is a photo of Bob Brown. The image of the Greens lead by a “Raving Alarmist” like Bob Brown will always ensure that they get virtually zero support in conservative Rural & Regional Australia where we are sensitive to political spin and bull shit.
