Canvassing for Opinion - aka "Blairs Brain on Cannabis"

IMHO prohibition sentiment requires inherent addiction to status quo, an incapacity to visualise beyond the here and now and a desperate desire to know others might feel the same... Reform is not revolutionary, rather it is evolutionary. Having survived banging your head against a brick wall the evolutionist relishes having stopped. / Blair

Biodiversity key to sustainable biofuel

Ecosystems containing many different plant species are not only more productive, they are also better able to withstand and recover from climate extremes, pests and disease over long periods of time.

Biodiversity key to sustainable biofuel
according to University of Minn. researcher's findings
http://www.NewEnergyReport.org/019670.html


So why are we even considering 10's of thousands of hectares of monoculture dairy on the Canterbury central plains based on water drawn from rivers at a rate of 800/liters per liter of milk production ?

Water is not a tradable right for expeditious corporate plunder.

Is it not about stymieing the central plains irrigation project, rather, questioning what is the sustainable (best) land use and economic solution for the region. That is not evident in the current resource consent proposal.
It may mean a significant irrigation project non-the-less.. just not this proposal.
