If he really wants to make a difference he'd plant a lot of P rad because theres a final payoff in timber and even ethanol in the future.<BR/><BR/>JCAnonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2686354713190138224.post-66790986954945794452008-09-30T10:49:00.000+13:002008-09-30T10:49:00.000+13:00I liked the Green candidates response: so he can'...I liked the Green candidates response: so he can't afford $80 and 45 minutes to plant 20 trees? what a fuckwit.<BR/><BR/>BTW, jc, Graeme Hall's research for Landcare in 2001 (I think) showed sequestration in natives occurs faster in the first 15 years.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2686354713190138224.post-51521927305367510932008-09-30T09:56:00.000+13:002008-09-30T09:56:00.000+13:00Eric should also check his maths.

Also, he needs to understand that for the first 50 years there'll be bugger all sequestration.<BR/><BR/>He, OTOH, will be belching hot air vastly in excess of the tree's potential in just 40 days.<BR/><BR/>JCAnonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2686354713190138224.post-259008718766917362008-09-30T09:11:00.000+13:002008-09-30T09:11:00.000+13:00Bb, who is the local ACT candidate, they surely de...Bb, who is the local ACT candidate, they surely deserve a plug and a vote after the actions of this fool.Whaleoilhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/00678132752321342863noreply@blogger.com
