Australia's visual culture and healthy environment.
Australia's once-sovereign waters - west of Wedge Island.
In the 1980s, the marine landscape west of Wedge Island inspired a new direction in world visual culture.
For 30 years, paintings of Wedge by the artist Aaqus have sold to
international art collectors - bringing export income
and overseas prestige recognition to Tasmania and Nubeena.
People used to move to Nubeena for its pristine beauty - one of the last places on Earth with clean
ocean water, fresh air, gorgeous beaches, vast native forest gardens
and the pure natural background sound of breezes, surf and native birds.
But now Nubeena is being destroyed by disruptive foreign and local mismanagement.
The people who invested in Nubeena lifestyles and businesses now find their clean ocean water
and natural soundscape under attack day and night.
People who invested in its once pristine beauty have to shut tight their windows at night because the
homes are now ruined day and night with the drone of noisy industrial machinery from
expanding cage fish factories.
Investors who purchased coastal sanctuaries for quiet meditation and thoughtful businesses now
suffer under droning machinery noise that floods their homes - destroying their health and
The cause of the pollution is foreign finance and bad government support for the
expansion of massive floating industrial factories in what was once Nubeena, Storm Bay
and Bruny Island's pristine sovereign waters.
These industrial-scale factories crowd together thousands of
animals (salmon) who defecate massive quantities of raw sewage into the
once-pristine waters of the Derwent's River's Storm Bay.
Today, predator banks and governments are migrating the
equivalent of a half-million person industrial city and its sewerage to Storm Bay.
The banks' industrial Storm Bay factories will defecate the likes of half a
million people's sewerage into our estuary and coastline.
(Tasmanian Times 11 May 2018).
It has taken Hobart's settlement 200 years to fix its sewerage
pollution of its drinking water, rivers, beaches and beautiful estuary.
Now in one foul stroke, predatory banks and governments
support the massive expansion of salmon industrial raw sewerage
in South East Tasmania.
The great wild surf beach, Roaring Beach, faeces the same destruction.
Tassall's original small factory in Nubeena quickly discoloured
the local beach with filth and it remains so today.
In a democracy, one would expect the local Tasman council
to defend its ratepayers and immediately remove the invasive
industrial noise pollution and the toxic raw sewerage.
Instead, media emphasises the council's praise for the industrial invasion.
Planning for a healthy natural Tasmania has been hijacked
by a predatory mentality. Predatory finance is
discussed in Charles H. Ferguson's 'Predator Nation' (2012).
Predatory government hides its plans for destruction
of Tasmania's 'healthy environment' investments.
Government tells corporations not to discuss their plans with the public.
Tassal's money lenders.
Tassal's Commonwealth (Bankwest) and Westpac are majority foreign owned.
Rabobank, Commonwealth and Westpac fund Tassal's destruction of human health.
Tasmanian and allied antibiotic destruction. The coming holocaust predatory managers cause.
At least Rabobank is open about the destruction of human health.
Whereas Tassal's Commonwealth Bank secretly embezzles the dead.
Besides sewerage and noise west of Wedge, Westpac destroys this nurse.
Rabobank's drug cartel trafficking is 100s of millions larger than its Tassal investments.
Corporate (fish) farming utterly destroys small business ownership in the US, China (and now in Tasmania).
The Tasmanian government and its corporate backers cannot be trusted with our wild fish resource.
Tasmanian government as a 'planning' conspirator. It ruins coastal land, homes and business values.
The likely onset of algal bloom ruin in oil-fueled climate changed Tasmania.
Tasmanian landscape artist Aaqus (and other businesses) have their export businesses ruined.
Government-backed fish farm dams turn Tasmanian water courses to sand.
Reports of destruction ignored by the minister.
