This article in the Sydney Morning Herald by well respected journalist Paul Sheehan, really "got up my nose". So much so I sent off the following letter to the Editor. Sadly he/she didn't see fit to publish it.
"Paul Sheehan's perception of modern agriculture is severely flawed (''We'll reap what we deserve'', February 18). Instead of relying on some credibility challenged CSIRO reports and a "tree-hugging" Bob Carr, he should go bush and talk to some progressive, science oriented, successful farmers."
