Hi all.
I live in Australia, hate seeing trees cut down or animals harmed, and work for a company called Biomaster.
I run the US Amazon accounts for the range of eco-safe septic tank treatments, compost accelerators, grease trap treatments and drain cleaners. All 100% natural bacteria-based green products so I know I'm doing no harm. Not much work where I live, apart from dairy farming and logging. I've done my share of farming and I'm not going back. Logging was never going to be an option. Hope to learn something and share in discussions. Thanks for having me.

Welcome, Mate! Not much action here, superseded by social networks.

Thanks for the welcome, muchly appreciated. Shame it's so quiet, seems I may be too late for the really red hot discussions. My social networking sites look like they're in decline as well. Not entirely unhappy about that, as long as it doesn't mean we all just stop communicating altogether. Frowning, eyes down, distrust and shaking fists isn't such a great replacement.

Keep doing your part, go solar and one child or less, grow as much of your food as possible, refrain from overuse of fossil fuels, and vote to keep Australia as it was 50 years ago but without the industrialization and immigration.

Welcome, I'm new here myself, hoping for more discussion,but I'll take what we have, and try to contribute something mostly positive.

It seems forums like this are slowly dying in favor of things like Facebook (which for personal reasons I will not rejoin).

I spent 5 weeks in Australia last August/September. Four of those in a tiny Camper. I found your country to be much cleaner than the USA and the Australians more friendly, polite and civilized than we are.

Keep up the good work, and do what you can.

Bob

Thanks Bob, I'd also like to be positive in my contributions. Glad you had a nice time in Oz, we're currently doing all we can to ignore climate change and open up world heritage areas to mining, including a massive new coal mine that by all accounts will threaten the Great Barrier Reef. Jobs and growth, jobs and growth rinse and repeat. (Sorry, after saying I was going to try to be positive in my contributions I lasted a fraction of a second before becoming very negative indeed.) I wish I could take your impressions of the situation in Oz as objective truth Bob, but I'm afraid there are as many unfriendly, rude and uncivilized people here as anywhere else. Perhaps you were just lucky enough to avoid too many encounters with the local human sub-species known as Bogans and Yobbos. (I guess your local equivalent would be 'Trailer Trash', but really they're a breed all of their own... We also do a delightful line in Meth Heads, but I know you've got them too.
Certainly the situation is not hopeless though (how's that for positivity?) as there are still many good people who do care, particularly in the young, and are not afraid to make themselves heard and take action.

I saw some of the bleaching on the Great Barrier Reef, we have pretty much the same in our Florida and Caribbean reefs. And yes, population growth international corporations are taking their toll on the environment. Unfortunately we have the corporate media sowing the seeds of doubt and greed here and they propaganda gets IMHO the wrong people elected to most offices.

As things get worse, there is a growing consciousness about saving the planet creeping into politics. I hope it grows stronger quickly enough, and hope it's not too late.

All in all we that care need to do what we can.

BTW, I flew to Brisbane, rented a car and did some of the natural parks, then flew up to Cairns and rented a car for the reef and rain forest (got all the way to Cape Trib). After that flew to Darwin, rented the camper, drove down the Stuart Hwy to Kangaroo Island and then along the bottom to Sidney taking in Adelaide and Melbourne in between.

You still have a lot of natural resources to save, I truly hope you all can.
