Greg Hunt must think calling people Hitler is going a (small) step too far:
“Saddam Hussein has destroyed a RAMSAR listed wetland, Penny Wong and Kevin Rudd are about to join unique company,” he said.
Nice to see a politician who is happy to take his talking points from an unscrupulous hatchet man like Piers Akerman:
The former Soviet Union killed the Aral Sea, the fourth largest inland body of water; Saddam Hussein destroyed the marshes at the confluence of the Tigris and Euphrates, the largest wetlands ecosystem in the Middle East – and the ALP soon may have to take ultimate responsibility for killing the Murray-Darling, Australia’s largest river system.
Each of these three environmental disasters was caused by humans and each could have been prevented.
