“The report found 62% of the decline in rainfall in the State’s South West is directly linked to logging”
This isn’t new informatiion. The West Australian State Government have been told that logging effects rainfall by many scientists. However our Premier Colin Barnett is allowing logging to continue in our South West forests and in fact he is planning to increase it.
The native logging industry in WA is bearly profitable and only employs around 400 people. Corporations can sack 2,000 workers in one swoop and you hardly hear anthing about it. Native logging is costing us much more than it makes.
