BREAKING NEWS!!! WTF? - AUSTRALIA'S GOVERNMENT WANTS TO KILL GREAT WHITES AGAIN!! PLEASE REPOST
Australia's Liberal Party federal council (Bill proposed by Anthony Spagnolo) has unanimously moved to lift protection of great white sharks if the CSIRO’s forthcoming population study finds the species is no longer endangered.
WA senator Linda Reynolds told 'The Australian' the vote “reinforces that there are other opinions than those held by environmentalists. We want to base any future measures on scientific evidence, not emotional rhetoric.” Former Liberal prime minister Tony Abbott told 'The Australian' that lifting protection and restarting commercial shark fishing would “ensure that we have a stronger economy and a safer society. They’ve been protected now for 20 odd years. Every fisherman knows the numbers are exploding. They are not an endangered species.” S. Aus Liberal MP Nicolle Flint said, “We must protect our swimmers and surfers and hard-working Australians like abalone divers from being attacked or killed by sharks. In an era when rates of obesity and Type 2 Diabetes are at an all-time high, we should be encouraging more, not less, people to be active. This means keeping them safe from shark attacks along our coastline. We need evidence-based decision making and management of great white shark populations.” [The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) is the federal government agency for scientific research in Australia.] This article was written by Fred Pawle and published 24 June 2017. #australia #ourearthmatters #savetheshark #extinctionisforever #WTF #greatwhite #jaws #breakingnews
