Googong Burns

johnboy 8 May 2009 9

The ESA is warning that, while the spectacular burning on Black Mountain has now been completed, they’ve moved their attentions to the Googong Foreshores.

There will be smoke.

So, as usual, don’t panic.

If these areas were “overpopulated” with roos like they keep saying, they wouldn’t need to burn it up. My place hasn’t had burnable grass in years, the roos are keeping it right down. Anything they don’t eat, I poison, as that means it’s serrated tussock.

They have to burn the grass every year – if they don’t it might get ‘old growth’ stauts and then there’ll be a big hoo-ha with the greenies when they need to clear fell, sorry I meant mow it.

But it’s not just grass burning, is it? It’s trees, shrubs, the tiny native orchids and all the animals that either burn to death, die of smoke inhalation.

How many wombats do you need for one carbon credit anyway?

Because Googong in on federal land. Or at least it has Commonwealth land signs on the fences of the reserve, so it used to be.

I thought Googong was in NSW. How come an ACT instrumentality is burning off there?

vyberlina: because the grass will regrow and take the carbon back up within a few years. Coal doesn’t resequester carbon so quickly.

or the legless lizards that are getting burnt to death?

Why aren’t we all screaming about the level of carbon emissions this generates?
