Clean discharge. Clean green New Zealand. Yeah right.Jim Seaview states that Fonterra should be ashamed.It is in fact the New Zealand people who should be ashamed that have allowed themselves to be conned and have bought into this environmentally destructive 'pseudo free-market' which has been rigged so big money can do what it likes regardless of the mountains of evidence as to how environmetally irresponsible their drive for profit is.And the dairy farmers should also be ashamed that they support such environmental destruction.In the long run we will all be losers.

Just 'where' do thes people from Fonterra think their waste ends up? Right throughout the foodchain. Tui's should definitely put up a poster about this.

QUOTE: "Fonterra says the algae problem should be solved when it is more diluted with the main river. “Because it’s like water, we’re looking to improve the mixing so we’re putting it into a larger body of water,” says Mr Taylor."Fonterra has shown clearly that their Environmental policies (or what is left of them) are clearly back in the 50's era where "dilution is the solution" was the Industrial norm and that is why so many factories were set up by rivers.Their overpaid Environmental managers have missed the mark completely when they argue their case at a resource consent hearing. Again their only policy seems to be "dumping is the cheapest option so lets do it".Fonterra should be ashamed.
