Here’s the Chant;
‘’No ice-cream, no lamb roasts, no flights to schoolies week on Gold Coast. No ice-cream, no lamb roasts, no flights to schoolies week on Gold Coast’’.
The farts and burps of Dairy Cows are a major source of greenhouse gases -so ice cream, milkshakes and cheese have to go.
Likewise, the farts and burps of Sheep – so lamb roasts should be banned.
And air travel is a major source of Co2 emissions in the transport sector, so anyone wanting to go to schoolies week on the Gold Coast will have to travel by push bike.
Beat that for virtue-signalling !!
