We see some different things to the average Joe

BEING in the transport industry you get to see and do a lot of things normal people never get to see.

Some of those things like removing and transporting mining equipment from mine sites, over the years I have worked on various mine sites and seen the devastation caused by the mining industry.

The death and destruction, the thousands of animals that die agonising deaths from drinking the contaminated water.

The amount of heavy metals that wash into creeks and streams that leave natural arsenic, copper nitrates, and many other chemicals that are contaminating our lands.

Yes we need a mining industry to mine some base metals, and we need coal to fire our power stations but we don't need to rape our lands and sell our resources for a pittance leaving nothing for future generations.
