That the Senate—
(a) holds that human life is more important than animal life; and
(b) calls upon the Government to prioritise human life in all portfolio areas, including the environment portfolio when balancing fire prevention against biodiversity conservation.
Homo sapiens are part of the Animalia kingdom, or, to put it in plain English for Senator Cory Bernardi, humans are animals. Senator Bernardi is an animal. Given that this motion fails high-school-level biology, the Greens cannot take seriously any argument that Senator Bernardi has to make on the complex issues of biodiversity conservation and fire management in our forests.
