Following the court's decision, Brown indicated that his Foundation's activists will continue protesting in the forests while its lawyers will appeal the decision in the High Court.

I hope Brown is paying for this Federal Court nonsense. After years of being a nuisance in parliament, he is now a nobody like everyone else, except for his taxpayer funded pension.

Good to see the misinformation spread by the sorts of people who accuse others of doing it being called out.

A very slippery Bob Brown is full of it! And his surname is apt, given the resemblance?

For millennia native peoples have been selectively logging their native forests without harm to the environment or fauna or flora!

Trees store carbon whether vertical or horizontal! And release it back when they burn or decay!

Soil stored carbon is released with ploughing!

Unlogged forests are all too often a mountain of tinder-dry fuel waiting to crown at the very first opportunity, the next ultradry spell!

The greens are not about saving anything! Just do deals, even with the devil to gain more power! And will seize on any divisive issue and fearmongering to advance that outcome!

Unity for the nation was never ever their servant, with their divise fearmongering and mountainous misinformation on many fronts, Nuclear energy, growth and development being foremost among many?

Al

Thatís the most unashamedly hypocritical post yet.

With your constant waving of the rainbow flag, you should consider cancelling the game and taking your marbles home.

Not sure which 'native peoples' were selectively logging or logging at all, but it sure wasn't our 'natives', unless Alan is taking a leaf out of Bruce Pascoe's ravings about Australian Aboriginals being sophisticated townies.

I saw old Bruce on TV last night telling Sam Neill in 'The Pacific: In the Wake of Captain Cook', that Captain Cook MUST have noticed that the natives were farmers and producers. How that old ratbag got on I don't know, when REAL descendants of our mob and others in the Pacific were worth listening to.

Dysfunctional Dan, If accepting folk for who they are at birth! The medical science that confirms that and just giving the other bloke a fair go is waving a rainbow flag? I'll wear it and your endless BS insults!

Because you incorrigible, bellicose belligerent bar steward, bully boy. The truth for you and your set in stone, fatuous fallacious mindset, is incapable of looking at the unvarnished truth! And presenting it for your perusal is a waste of time and space, as indeed you surely are!

By the way, this particular thread was on the environment and Bob Brown! WTF has my fair go mate attitude to folk who are different got to do wth it? Do you need to die and ross over to finally understand he wrong you've been and the irreversible harm you may have done or caused, given words matter!

Don't forget to take your meds1 And you'll have a nice day now, y'hear.
