Well said I am keeping your email as an incentive. Like Penny I wish I had
an answer. Even those seachangers coming to Tassie for a beach change want
to change the habitat they build in by removing all trees and laying
pebbles. Where do we start. Geoff Shannon

Rainforests seed rain. Forests assist climate balance and carbon
sequestering. Natural destruction through lightning started bush fires do
not strongly effect thick canopied rainforest.  Mankind is responsible for
the huge destruction of these forests and has tipped the balance. 
Compound it further with the extra loads we put upon our enviroment with
carbon emissions, erosion and soil degradation, I feel that to doubt that we
need to address these issues and to assist in slowing the distinction of
species is extremely egocentric. 
As we look at past generations and shake our heads with disbelief at their
understanding of science and belief systems, our youth will find us
irresponsible and willfully destructive to have charged-on in our greed for
resources, development, progress, financial gain and self-indulgence. We
have knowledge and we have alternatives and actively choose that it is
inconvenient to make adjustments.
We flush our toilets with drinking water, we support multinationals that
tear down rainforests to grow palms for oil, we invest in shares or allow
our Superannuation  Funds to support unsustainable corporations, we expect
others to carry the burden before we relinquish our comforts and we support
short-term thinking governments. 
I regret my past acts of self importance and try to contribute wherever and
whenever I can, both in Australia and abroad. I hope more like-minded folk
make the time to do the what they can.
