Oil spill on the Barrier Reef

here.
This is par for the course in Queensland where fishing, sugar cane run-off and mining operations run bang smack into the Daintree rainforest and the Gt Barrier Reef. I'd love to see an analysis of where Qld's money comes from, i'm betting tourism on the reef/rainforest outstrips sugar cane and prawn fishing, yet they still go out and hoover up whatever they can find ;-(
Nobody pretends to understand Qld politics, especially after NZ's greatest export Joh Bealki-Peterson (spelling?) screwed the place up for the better part of 20 years.
I'm glad i got to go scuba diving before the big one hits...
