And you think you have problems now………..

24th July 2015. While we all lose sleep over life’s petty problems, no one seems particularly perturbed that due to man’s intervention in the atmosphere the earth has now entered an unstoppable warming phase, a phase, that even with maximum intervention will go on for a millenium. Not my problem, I’ll be dead by then seems to be the mindset…… We always were a flawed species. Tomorrow your children will feel the heat

I’m Back…

22nd July 2015. Well back after a long sabbatical while getting a bit disillusioned with the state of the nation. Currently in my view we have the worst Prime Minister we have ever had, the current government is the worst we have ever had, and the current opposition is the most ineffectual we have ever had. The country is in a race to the bottom and like leemings many of the population are following. The rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer, corporations are dodging billions in tax and the country is existing as a service industry selling over priced overseas goods and services to other Australians. Sitting back and saying nothing – achieves nothing

And the elephant in the room……

23rd September 2014. Much of the daily bad news can be eventually be traced back to one issue ‘Too many people’. Many species in the animal and insect world are biologically way ahead of us in controlling population¬† to meet the requirements of the environment eg Kangaroos hold back birth rates in bad times. Humans well I guess we will just procreate ourselves into oblivion. ‘Each person we add now disproportionately impacts on the environment and life-support systems of the planet‘

Beware….

20th August 2014. Beware – environmental vandals on the loose – vote carefully ‘There’s so much pollution in the air now that if it weren’t for our lungs there’d be no place to put it all.‘

Ghost Train….

4th December 2012. So the news is getting worse with news that by 2100 max temps will rise by 4-6 C. Atmospheric pollution comes down the Hunter Valley in coal trains and is launched into the atmosphere courtesy of China who at this moment appear responsible for 80% of the pollution. Chinese per capita emissions of course are much lower than ours so the blame lies not with China but everyone. We enrich magnates, please shareholders, but destroy the planet. ‘Our great grandchildren will say – how could you let this happen’
