    Responsibility to future generations is not just desirable, but completely unethical not to …. is there a race to see how selfish we can be?

    Point worth making – any timber harvested on this basis will be as attractive to consumers as ivory or whale meat.
    The majority of “Trendy” inner urban types will not buy anything made from it, be it souvenirs, art or furniture.
    In a competitive hardware / timber market, it would be damaging for any firm to stock such timber. As an amateur woodworker, I, and others, would not buy anything from such a firm and they know it.
    By extension, all Tasmanian sourced wood could be tarred with the same brush and become more difficult to market, thus damaging existing markets for all Tasmanian timber products.
    As such the major destination of all Tasmanian harvested wood will be the cardboard boxes that I and others buy our tools in.
    The winners in this scenario? Nobody.
    The warm inner glow felt by some within the present government caused by “shoving it up the greenies” will not be able to be used to help either the environment, tourism or timber industry recover.

    Screw this! These places are irreplaceable and of immeasurable value . This is not just in terms of the habitat and ecological sanctuary they provide in ever diminishing vignettes of what once was the natural order of the Australian environment. If we allow these last bastions of environmental integrity to fall to the chainsaws and bulldozers of the myopic oligarchy, will we the people have signed away our right to exist as free beings within a natural order. Our heads are in the sand as our most precious places are sold away. We will have no right to regret – we know it is happening on our watch.
