so while I wait for the porn site bastards to respond … this has been happening in my world

I take a slightly un-orthodox, possibly naive, view of environmental ‘issues’. While I’ll kick up a stink re gender, race and sexual assault issues faster than you can order a big mac in a drive thru … environmental issues are not really my area of ‘expertise’.

I tend to believe that Mother Nature – or Papatuanuku, as we call her … is well able to take care of herself. We are supposed to take care of her; but if we should fuck that up, she is well able to exact her own special revenge.

I’ve always taught my kids to respect Her … and I do the same. This involves not polluting; not over fishing or stripping out and away all of our natural resources; it involves protecting the natural environment. And I guess I thought that most decent human beings did the same thing.

Then this happened:

What are you seeing?

Thousands and thousands and thousands of dead and dying pipi on My shoreline.

It started about 3 weeks ago and as far as I know there are still pipi being washed up. The whole beach wreaks of death and it is a sight that is sad beyond belief. It looks like the entire population of pipi are dead.

Our local council have said they’ve conducted tests and found that the die off isn’t related to toxicity.

I say – Bullshit!!

You can read a more in-depth and fact related article on the whole matter here. Like I said it’s not my area of expertise. Suffice to say though … I am well pissed off. From what I’ve learnt over the last few months – weeks –  our local fuckwit council have been dumping their shit into the local rivers/streams/lakes and that shit and pollution has finally made its way into our beautiful ocean.

I’m not entirely sure what we can do about this: I’m working on it.

In the meantime, I haven’t been down there for a couple of weeks … I can’t. It’s too sad at the moment.

Heres some more of the devastation:

  1. HOLY SHIT!!! Get hold of Avaaz, or Greenpeace. They are VERY active in this arena, and I subscribe and also donate to them for the excellent work they do. The Council is OBVIOUSLY lying about dumping toxic waste!! This is a travesty so bad, that i’m in tears. FUCK them. I hope that whomever is responsible for the killing of our Oceans and all the beautiful creatures in it, die a PAINFUL death!!!

    • As do i! .. .Yes we’re sort of mid-way through getting everyone together. Theres been peeps fighting this for years around here. 2 different council have been dumping into 2 of the main rivers for years – with warnings from environmental peeps that eventually this sort of thing may happen. Thats not taking into consideration the local lake and streams they’ve polluted all in the name of money! Honestly, its a huge problem nationwide and whats even more fucked, is New Zealand has a clean green image to uphold so whenever shit like this happens they try to sink it pretty fast. They may fucked up a little this time by responding way too fast with reports of ‘non-toxicity’. Greenpeace and Avaaz are on the list of contacts – They’ve both been involved with the anti oil drilling up our other coastlines recently.
      Feeling you on the tears mate … I find it devastating … aside from the fact that this is my safe haven blah blah … its just incredibly WRONG!!
