We're killing the earth

Conservation has never been more in the public eye than when Steve Irwin died. But that just leaves most of us going "HOOFUCKINRAY!" cos the world needs to wake up and listen! THERE ARE MORE ANIMALS ON THIS PLANET THAN HUMANS! Strange how when you lose something you suddenly get "global warming" GLOBAL WARMING MY ASS!!!! WE HUMANS HAVE DECADES OF KNOWLEDGE THAT WE'VE IGNORED! WE NEGLECTED THE LAND SO IT'S PAYING US BACK AND WE NEED TO SAVE IT OR WE WILL ALL DIE.

no I'm not being dramatic, I'm just making a point. Even back in 1989 John Williamson, who's gained new recognition since Steve's death (which is another good thing) was singing about conservation. And I bet if you heard the song you'd know it, ok maybe not alll of you but look....

RIP RIP WOODCHIP
Words and Music by John Williamson

What am I gonna do - what about the future?
Gotta draw the line without delay
Why shouldn't I get emotional - the bush is sacred
Ancient life will fade away

Over the hill they go, killing another mountain
Gotta fill the quota - can't go slow
Huge machinery wiping out the scenery
One big swipe like a shearer's blow

Rip rip woodchip - turn it into paper
Throw it in the bin, no news today
Nightmare, dreaming - can't you hear the screaming?
Chainsaw, eyesore - more decay

Remember the axemen knew their timber
Cared about the way they brought it down
Crosscut, blackbutt, tallowood and cedar
Build another bungalow - pioneer town

I am the bush and I am koala
We are one - go hand in hand
I am the bush like Banjo and Henry
It's in my blood - gonna make a stand

Rip rip woodchip - turn it into paper
Throw it in the bin, no news today
Nightmare, dreaming - can't you hear the screaming?
Chainsaw, eyesore - more decay

Rip rip woodchip - turn it into paper
Throw it in the bin - don't understand
Nightmare, dreaming - can't you hear the screaming?
Stirs my blood - gonna make a stand
