No Fracking Australian NT Lock the Gate Remote 2017-10-18

Outside the Origin Energy AGM in Sydney, near Martin Place, October 18th 2017, Lock the Gate and Seed Mob, came together for a passionate "No" to Origin Energy Plans for Gas Fracking in Australia's Northern Territory. The reputation of gas-fracking precedes itself.

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. These included

  • 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.

Powering a 21st Century Economy: Secure, Clean, Affordable Electricity Climate Council Remote 2017-10-06

With special thanks to the Australian Government subservience to the Gas Export Industry, Renewable Energy is now by far the cheapest form of energy for electricity.

This new report from the Climate Council leaves the Australia Government climate and energy policy in the 19th Century.

Stop making a killing of Australia Medium Remote 2017-10-06

The 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

Poll : Overwhelming support for Clean Energy Target Climate Council Remote 2017-10-04

A few polls commissioned by the Climate Council show federal politicians supporting "Coal at any Cost" to be completely out of touch with their electorates.

A large majority , greater than 70%, want the Liddell power stations closed, want a clean energy target, and expect to have energy storage solutions at all scales.

'Really awful': 50-degree days possible for Sydney, Melbourne, as warming worsens Bendigo Advertiser Remote 2017-10-04

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.

Coal Politicians are climate cowards on the run Here Blog 2017-10-03

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.

Ms. Palasczuk, global climate arsonist, environment wrecker

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.
