I've been following the discussion of the foreward in the NHT Journal. This is amazing! I've had a copy for a few months now - have read all of the articles with pleasure, and with admiration for the work being done - but had not read the foreword until this week.
I generally assume that forewords in such journals are largely political posturing and hardly worth the time taken to read them. This one, however, does have something to say, and I don't think the numbers nonsense removes quite all of its credibility.
The last few paragraphs are pretty good, in fact. The sale of Telstra is past; some money's always going to be wasted in projects; better to focus on the positive outcomes of these bird-related exercises funded through NHT.  Improvements to essential bird habitat are not going to happen without the incentive of funding from some source - and it's those improvements that count in the long term.
We should be wary of becoming too pedantic when bird welfare is the really important issue.
