The carbon taxers hope to bribe the bush with their "Carbon Farming Initiative" (CFI).

Carbon farming was not an "initiative" of the Australian government.

The first carbon farmer probably grew barley in Mesopotamia long before extreme weather prompted Noah to build the Ark. His crops took solar energy from the sun, water from the Euphrates, minerals from the soil and carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to produce carbon food, all without carbon credit subsidies.

Every farmer today harvests carbon in the same way to produce carbon food, fibre and fuel.

The CFI is force-feeding an artificial industry harvesting carbon credits. These fake farmers take the same useful ingredients from the sun, water, soil and air to produce sterile monuments like sacred trees that must not be logged for timber, nor burnt as fuel, nor used in any other way. For growing this useless product they are paid a government created carbon credit subsidy.

This unsustainable farming practice locks up vital resources whilst the subsidies consume community savings. Yet climate will keep fluctuating, as it always has.

Fake farming is foolish frittering of funds and will fail. Future generations will remove these parasitic monuments to make way for real carbon farmers.
