After reading about what is going on in other places, I thought I might mention a major marine conservation problem here in Tasmania. The 'clean, green' state is considering putting in a pulp mill in the Tamar River. The thought of pumping thousands on tonnes of heated water, tannins and chlorine into the marine environment doesnt seem to worry the pollies at all. The fact that everything from algae, to cephs, to seals will be affected again does not seem to bother them. I have joined the fight to stop this mill from getting built. If anyone is interested in the campaign or just wants to follow whats going on, then just go to: http://www.wilderness.org.au We also have a state election here in March and it will be very interesting to see the results....fingers crossed.
