Forests for Life.. Stop the Chop!



What on earth is going on in the world right now, it seems, as supposedly the most intelligent species, we are systematically destroying the planet! If it's not filling our oceans and killing sea life with non recyclable plastic it's destroying the homes of many native birds and animals by over clearing forests.. don't get me started on fracking. We were in the city over the weekend to take pics of Forests for Life's march to save WA's Karri and Jarrah forests. If greedy politicians thought more about what they will be leaving behind for their grandchildren to inherit they might not happily sign away our natural treasure. It was a peaceful, solemn march, hopefully having an impact on aforementioned politicians.. they know who they are! Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

  2. Not just the forests, I read the other day that NZ are spraying both North and South Island to kill rodents, what happens to the birds and other creatures that should eat the dead rodents????? Soon there will nothing left on this planet and of course Trump says there is nothing wrong either. When we visited USA we were horrified at the lack of recycling especially compared to here.
    Driving into Angouleme on the highway today, looking back at the photos I took, there are green trees in pretty much every one despite being on the highway and going into the city. I was quite impressed. Take care Diane

  3. I am amazed our eight and six year old granddaughters know so much about the environment and protecting it. I fear for them and what we are leaving them.

  4. Thanks to the Montreal Protocol Treaty every nation in the world pledged to fix the ozone layer... and worked. Again we need the politicians to work together and save us from climate change.

  5. Working together is the only way it's going to work. I'm afraid there are too many greedy politicians out there. Good to see people marching for what's important.

  6. How about making a little bit of the Australian desert green again. I think that you have to start by yourself and not decide what other countries must do but just convince them by example.

  7. This perfectly coincides with the United Nations Global Assessment that was just released. It is extremely sad to think that so many people find greed and wealth more important than the future of the earth. I don't know how they can sleep at night.

  11. Good for them. All part of keeping sustained pressure on politicians and it's especially important activism shortly before our Federal vote.

  12. I often wonder why people behave like they do. But good for these marchers I hope they can make a difference.

  13. It´s sad, but I do believe greediness stands much above common sense in those politicians, Grace.
    Certainly it´s still a good and needed thing to go into the streets like that! Peaceful, too.
    Future generations, what will they have, see or endure...
