Protest facebook event link. What would be the cost of
allowing Santos to produce gas in the Pilliga over national value of the Great Artesian Basin? All the natural springs, rivers,
creeks and streams feed from this body of water.
Nic Clyde, from Lock the Gate, said that a number of motions concerning
climate risks were being put to the Origin AGM, all of which Origin had advised its share holders to vote against.
Origin clearly quantify its risks for stranded assets of fossil fuel interests, because of carbon emission limits for having a safe climate.
Origin as a energy corporation, and a major energy provider in Australia,
needs to publish its plan for transition to net-zero carbon energy systems.
Origin needs to measure amounts of fugitive emissions from its existing gas operations.
I have also just taken part in a "National Day of Action" on
7th October 2017, for the "#StopAdani" campaign.
I was one of thousands of human pixels, as seen by drone camera, for a large "Stop Adani" sign on Bondi Beach.
Later later on that day a similar event in a large park in Newtown. Similar events happened all over Australia.
Australian Federal Government is run for and by export coal and gas business owned by foreign corporatchiks. Government ministers do not care about our climate emergency because there are hundreds of billions of dollars to be made by fleecing Australia.
Can Malcolm Turnbull keep on fooling the woolly-brained forever?
"Coal and Gas at any cost" -
The big gas companies have been robbing us blind. They are creating economic turmoil and
trying to shift the blame to farmers and communities. And the Federal Government is right behind them.
They’re adding insult to injury by using a fake “crisis” as an excuse to destroy more of our
farmland and natural areas - and risk even more of our precious water resources
Public transport melts, literally, on really hot days, . . . When you have a bunch of days one by one, it stops the whole system.
A new study led by Australian National University (ANU) climate
scientist Dr Sophie Lewis has projected daily temperatures 3.8C above
existing records for Sydney and Melbourne and even hotter extremes.
Having to give up on Coal energy is an admission that we human beings are dominated by
Nature and its Limits. Those people with a simple dominances setting seem to have low empathy,
and when emotions are cut off, we have a low chance of communicating with them using common sense, because they are too frightened of losing dominance.
A billion dollars of Australian taxpayer dollars, could buy thousands of
jobs outright in Queensland, and take us further down the path of climate safe energy, in
the urgent transition needed for our global climate emergency.
Instead these Coal Crooks and their mates plan to give it to a nearly bankrupt,
tax-dodging, environment criminal, dodgy Indian billionaire,
and promote greenhouse gas emissions beyond global safe climate limits.
The strictest environmental "conditions" in the world,
won't hold back a corporation with a track record of breaking them all, and Coal Mining is awful dirty and unhealthy. Premier Palasczuk's promotion of the Adani mine is a direct accelerant of our global climate emergency,
she a global warming arsonist, and she should be publicly treated as an arsonist.
The Adani Carmichael project needs to be stopped by every means possible.
Adani is already too hot to handle, for all the banks that have turned it down.
ABC TV broadcast its Four Corners
investigation documentary of "Digging into Adani" last night , October 2nd. Available on ABC iView, for viewing or download. The program captured pretty well the underlying sleaze, corruption, environmental damage, tax evasion,
behind the rise of this Indian Corporate Behemoth. The Australia government is bending over backwards for them. I have seen the evidence all over in bits and pieces on our fragmentary media.
Our ABC have done a public service in bringing it together.
Environmental "savings" and "heritage" , land and water, are so obviously worth lots of money.
A safe climate, and intact land and clean water, have eternally lasting value. These corporatchiks for fossil fuel profit are wasting energy, destroying agriculture, and doing climate crime. When will these fossil fuel worshippers learn the prayer for life on earth?
This is in response to a
Getup campaign email on 28th September, 2017, which asked for submissions to the Joint Selection Committee on Electoral Matters. The "major problem" with Australia's system of political finance is the "perception" of corruption, according to a new Parliamentary Committee report. Nothing at all wrong with reality them?
How can Australians tell they
are being screwed? That has been the entire purpose of the last decades of government gas policy, by LNP and Labor. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has pretty much confirmed it when yesterday he ordered the state governments to screw their people harder, to get more gas to sell overseas. Meanwhile the CSG operations have proved to be a PITA, since so much of Australia's plentiful natural gas is being diverted to be sold overseas for profit. The entire infrastructure has be geared up for foreign sales, with ultimate harmful externalities going to everybody. Paris climate treaty 2015, and carbon budget for 1.5 degrees C, never gets a mention from the corporatchik, climate booby, fossil fuel hired creeps of our politics and media, and gets only a bare mention by the anti-CSG resistance. We need more people to heed the extreme global climate danger we are already in. Malcolm Turnbull would have it that Australia's sole national purpose is to liberate a maximum amount of carbon dioxide and methane into our atmosphere, at the highest going profit for the game of mates of course.
Potholer54 excels at climate booby denunciations in this you-tube video. I am sure the boobies will be back with more.
Climate booby Andrew Bolt merely copied his stuff from the other climate boobies such as James Delingpole writing in Breitbart, who did the original deliberate misrepresentations. Andrew Bolt then localised the story to use his favourite hate target of Tim Flannery. Fossil fuel pushers and addicts are extremely fearful of government regulation more than then they fear the hot climate of a vengeful Earth System, because they will be rich, retired or dead by then.
No offence intended to the blue-footed booby here,
but it currently displays more intelligence than our current political
leadership of climate boobies. Climate boobies are us, while we continue
to trigger off more global climate booby traps while burning more fossil fuels, or selling our fossil fuels cheaply for others to burn. Everything else is petty local concerns, including the current Domestic Gas supply and prices crisis.
is no real point in picking on the trashiest of climate science report panic
which is current in the Murdoch Media Empire. I picked up a Daily Telegraph
in the coffee shop over lunch, and dispassionately read Andrew Bolt diatribe declaring
"the panic has ended". Not true, the Murdoch Media is in an absolutely frenzied state of panic
that the glory days of fossil fuels are coming to an end, and Andrew Bolt is a
daily hysterical positive proof.
Ian Dunlop on the well-known myopic self-interest we human beings are all prone to.
In the magical thinking of Australian policymakers, a pathway of gradual
change, constructed over many decades in a growing, prosperous,
coal-fired world stretches enticingly before us. The world not imagined
is the one that now exists: of looming financial instability; of a
global crisis of political legitimacy; of a sustainability crisis that
extends far beyond climate change to include all the fundamentals of
human existence, and of severe global energy sector dislocation.
