Agribuzz with David Leyonhjelm
All good in theory but that's not how business works in Indonesia. It is anti-Libertarian, it is all about cartels, connections and corruption.
Securing supply? That's the official reason but in reality it is a business deal and in Indonesia that's about securing monopolies.
Just look at the names of who will owns it. It is just a game for control of supply.
It's the choice of the landholder what they do with their land. If they earn some money on less productive land then good for them.
The guy has no experience even working in the green economy.
The cost of planting trees in Indonesia under the Kalimantan Forest Partnership was A$940,000 per hectare compared to around $2,000 a hectare in Australia.
Only 50 hectares were planted in Indonesia of which not much is left now.
Debunking the Coalition claim that it is more effective and less costly than an internationally linked schemes?
Just saying that having a controlled burn isn't going to save your house in these extreme weather situations 36c+ because everything is ignited.
The houses that survive are ones that have sprinklers going on their roofs vs a garden hose.
Also, 50% of houses lost are less than 15m from forests so if you want to have a house in a forest then expect fire and do something yourself to protect it rather than the govt.
Areas that had controlled burns burned equally to areas that didn't have controlled burns in the Victorian bushfires.
Nothing stops bushfires in high winds and high temperatures.
People need to bushfire proof their houses with water sprinklers.
Very true Dr Lin.
We would like to do more environmental plantings but the governments carbon sink modeling tool for the CFI is underestimated the carbon for landholders to generate a return by up to 60%.
The Department of Environment knows it, and have been meaning to update it for nearly a year but lack the resources to do it and with all the restructuring who knows?
It is one of those things that sounds small but dramatically impacts on the whole viability of environmental plantings or natural regeneration in the first place.
Small things matter as much as the policy.
