River red gums at risk from cowardly Labor environmental policies

From The Age on the tragic fate of Victorian River red gum forests. 70% of these forests in the Murray-Darling Basin are in decline. I have already posted on the need to boost environmental water flows to these forests – they need a decent drenching every few years – but Victorian Premier Mr Brumby has declined to agree to this. It is hard to deal with farmer support for environmental destruction in the midst of a drought.

Farmers are calling for increased support during the drought when what they should be doing is facing up to is higher water costs.
