Greens Agenda Causes Fatalities. They have even prosecuted people for making their own private property fire breaks, put them before the courts, tried them with legislation composed by the Green philosophy most have been fined and some have been sent to jail.
All just want to protect their families, their homes and their livelihoods. Such as Mr Sheahan who is still angry about his prosecution, which cost him $100,000 in fines and legal fees. Mr Sheahan cleared trees up to 100 metres away from his house. “The local councillors stood up in court and made us to look like the worst, wanton environmental vandals on the earth. We have thousands of trees on our property. We cleared about 247 trees,” he said.

Without this Fire Break his family and home would have been lost. He had to face a Court prosecution and $100,000 fine to survive. Although Liam Sheahan’s 2002 decision to disregard planning laws and bulldoze 250 trees on his hilltop property hurt his family financially and emotionally, he believes it helped save them and their home on the weekend. “The house is safe because we did all that,” he said as he pointed out his kitchen window to the clear ground where tall gum trees once cast a shadow on his house. ”We have the proof right here. We are the only house standing in a two-kilometre area.” Mr Sheahan was prosecuted and it cost him $100,000.
Another Case – Save Your Farm Build a Fire Break and Be Fined a Million Dollars. Many other land holders have been fined just recently the largest fine to date has impacted on Mr Michael Baker who, despite receiving conflicting advice from several different Queensland Government staff, has just resulted in a Queensland landowner being forced to pay $999,780 in fines and costs.
Michael Vincent Baker of Chess Park, Eidsvold Qld, was found guilty in the Brisbane Magistrate Court of the unauthorised clearing. Mr Baker representative solicitor Mr Marland said “that before Mr Baker commenced the clearing in question, he contacted 32 different Government employees seeking advice on the acceptable width of fire breaks. He said he received conflicting advice ranging from 1.5 metres wide to “1.5 times the height of the tallest tree”.
This fire break cost the farmer a million dollars from a prosecution and even then, its too small to stop a Crown fire.
“The Vegetation Management Act (VMA) provided an exemption for clearing remnant vegetation if the clearing was to establish a fire break, and provided the break was “no more than 20 metres wide or 1.5 times the height of the nearest vegetation”.
The Act also allowed for “the clearing necessary” to remove or reduce the imminent risk that the vegetation poses of serious personal injury or damage to infrastructure.”
Mr Baker was motivated to construct effective fire breaks because his 9242 hectare property Chess Park was almost totally burnt out by bushfire soon after he bought the property in May 2011. The fires caused $300,000 worth of damage to property infrastructure.”
Department of Natural Resources and Mines Director-General James Purtill said “The fine handed down reflects the significant extent of the illegal clearing and Mr Baker’s deliberate actions despite direct warnings given to him by the department,” Mr Purtill said.
“Queensland strikes a balance between enabling landowners to get on with managing their businesses by sensibly clearing appropriate vegetation, and protecting our environment.”
I believe that Mr James Purtill should be taken and wired to a tree before an oncoming bushfire with a 1.5 metre firebreak in front of him, before he can judge Mr Baker or anyone else’s firebreak distance especially as this was on Mr Baker’s property.

All of the Greens Party all of the green bureaucrats who sit and pontificate in government departments, all of the Green teachers in our schools and universities, all of our politicians who seek the Green votes all should be taken with Mr Purtill and wired to trees. Let them feel the super heated air burning the hairs in their noses and the back of their throats when its still 30 metres away, of course when it gets closer and sucks out the air from their lungs the oxygen burns brightly and fry’s them in their own body fat.
Let them really know how it feels to die, by the hands of local government Green legislation in the same way that they have imposed it on innocent people who have died in the last few weeks and those that are still to die before this Green legislation has been rectified.
The ABC ad SBS are missing-in-action when it comes to standing up for the farmers who are forced to pay tax to keep the billion dollar big-government propaganda-machine running.
