Casual prospectors and gold fossicker,s can be fined for using a sluice or panning in most of our rivers and streams now because doing so muddies the water and deprives the fishies of food and stuff. Plus we can be fined for moving just one earth Rock.

Yet here we have a cyclone in QLD and the NT that is moving a hell of a lot of Earth rocks and muddying every river and stream in those States....Yet the fish, bugs n slugs all seem to survive pretty well.
How many gold panners and sluicers do you think it would take to do the same amount of so called damage to the rivers as just one cyclone?

I reckon that the Greens would fine God if they could figure a way to do it...And they would confiscate his wind, lightning, rain, fire ice and snow.....Hmmmmm. But then there would be no environment would there??

The Greens contributed to the Tathra bushfires.
There was no backburning done there behind the town for 15+ years.
They should be made to stand there to fight the fires.

They should also be made to stand and watch the fish and eels come up to the disturbed water looking for a morsel to pick up when gold panning.

Yes that is something I have noticed on many  occasions.
Not a fish, eel, minnow or water beetle to be seen anywhere, but after having stirred  up the bottom a bit with my spade and crow bar, all of a sudden the little bludgers appear from out of  nowhere and start darting around all over the place along with fish that seem to be attracted to the muddied water near the stream bead.

As for Tathra. Well the tree huggers have a lot to answer for there along with the fire dept that refused help from 0ther fire fighters on the lame excuse that they reckoned the other pumpers could not get into the burning areas: Maybe so, but they sure as hell could have helped head it off at the pass, So to speak.
Someone has to make the decision to accept outside help and it is always better to have more help than no help.
All that is required to make the decision is for the person to have a good working brain and to not be a pyromaniac.

But just as with the Canberra fires; Help was refused until it was too late.

The tree huggers will always say it was not their fault but some body else . It is the blame game , pass it onto somebody else .
