    That is difficult in the face of the disinformation that has been deliberately spread by big business

    Did you hear Ross Garnaut the other night?

    Now here is someone who is an economist and has studied climate science

    He pointed out we are shipping ore offshore to be smelted

    We could use renewables and smelt it here

    Keep the jobs here would be one of the biggest pluses

    Crap,
    it is a reality. It started under Howard, and with our brain dead mob, it might never end.....

    Tell me,
    how on earth can the bloody Germans leading the developed world into a sustainable future? I just recently stumbled over this article:
    https://www.thesolutionsjournal.com...-at-four-decades-of-sustainable-policymaking/

    And just today I learned that the same country, which led the world into its darkest hours some 80 years back, put coal fired power plants on its way do be decommissioned:

    We have so much work to do, so much work.....

    Never has been in Australia. Bush fires are normal there. 1898 and 38/39 were very bad years for fires and killed hundreds. The natives burned the bush often to control it. If you clear your land now you get fined.

    The French were doing it before it was cool, and they managed to keep the second lowest power prices in Europe.

    That it's a reality still isn't a viable electoral strategy. Clearly Bob Brown style guilt trips aren't working, so what's the alternative?

    My guess... more guilt tripping. All the way to a Coalition majority government in 2022.
