This is what we have to deal with since Abbott was elected, he is completely disregarding our world heritage sites for $$$'s, The Great Barrier Reef, old growth forests of Tasmania & they have axed the 3 million dollar pledge to assist Indonesia with the conservation of one of the most endangered large mammals on earth, the Rhino!
Sad state of affairs in Australia!

Well, he ran and them promised, shortly after winning the election and being sworn in as Prime Minister, that he would began implementing his overhaul of the energy industry, by pushing for the abolishment of the carbon tax, the dissolution of the Climate Change Authority and the Climate Commission. So that's it what people voted for.

Sadly, this is happening all over. America's National Parks are under threat, as are all public lands.
