Tarkine conflict 

HERE we go again, a chance for Tasmania to develop anew mining venture in the far North- West in peril of falling over, all becauseof the “save the world” attitude of the conservation movement in ourstate. They state that protests will beheld that will far outstrip the Gordon-below-Franklin dam proposition of the1970s. This led to the Bass Strait cable beingestablished to accommodate our increasing power needs and thus now incurring acarbon tax, because the power is sourced from Gippsland coal-fired powerstations. Greens leader Nick Mckim states that the Tarkine should become anational park. Well, maybe some parts of it can indeed be preserved, but notbefore this resource-rich West Coast area is further explored for mining andother opportunities. If strict measures are put in place to contain miningoutflows and tailings and to rehabilitate these areas when mining is completewith plant species endemic to the area, I can’t see a problem. As our young andold alike continue to leave this state in droves to seek work on the mainland,we cannot afford to continually have new projects like these destroyed bycertain elements in our community.
