I'm with Vivianne and Heather on this one! No more selling out our eco-system to developement of any kind. ALL of it must be made illegal.Their money supply is basically electronic fantasy. The real wealth are the natural resources and they are stealing it from the planet for their own benefit.

No development..no mining...no drilling (for any thing) Leave the reef alone. we are losing the reefs to fast ; and they are places where the young creatures live to get big enough to go into the rest of the ocean.
The oceans make our weather patterns and balance's temperatures. I think they are very important to the while balance of our planet.

Protection, Protection, Protection. The Great Barrier reef apparently is on the World Heritage list and so should be Protected. No developments at all Tony Burke. I am Australian and realise what a beautiful and I would sacred site and sight the Great Barrier Reef is. Enough of Politics just put a ban on all development. Once its gone , its gone. Leave it alone for generations to come and for all of the diverse bird and marine life, - NO excuses.
