They shoot horses don’t they?

I am totally depressed at the depth of world poverty and, even worse, the lack of compassion and caring shown by so many who have so much. I detest our materialistic, consumer orientated, profit before people society. I am disgusted by the unethical and immoral behaviour of so many of our politicians, including those at senior levels. I am horrified by the hatred and aggression levelled at those in society…

Australia isolated as developed nations cancel carryover credits from Kyoto

Climate change and the need for immediate and stong action to eliminate the human contribution to it is now recognised and supported by the majority, if not all, nations of the World. Even nations with massive populations and increasing need for energy to feed their development, such as China and India, are taking major steps in the right direction, despite the additional obstacles for them to do so.

STAND UP! PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS TO A SAY IN WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR COUNTRY.

THE ADANI CARMICHAEL MINE PROJECT, which will damage kilometres of our environment, destroy native species habitat, and produce an eyesore and lasting destruction that will likely never be reversed, was given approval by the Abbott Government. Environmental groups assisted local land-owners in fighting this approval. The Federal Court overturned the approval, finding against the government.

The destruction of intervention with sacred…

It’s too late to save our world, so enjoy the spectacle of doom

Do you think that your grand-children will see out their lives on this planet, or even your children? With what seems to be nothing more than a lip-service effort to deal with human caused climate change that has already reached probably irreversible levels, my reading of the science would seem to indicate that it’s highly unlikely that the human race will see a 22nd Century, let alone another millenium change….

Protect those who protect our environment

Our environment is precious. Science has shown us that life is an inter-dependency of systems and that all species have their part to play. Human beings, in their ignorance and greed have already drastically interfered with nature with disastrous results for many species – including humanity itself. We need fertile land to provide us with food. We need unspoilt areas to provide our dwindling numbers of native species with appropriate…

Endangered Species, Then and Now | TakePart

Humam beings continue to make choices – usually for short term (and short-sighted) gain which endanger our environment and all species on the planet. Many species have already lost their fight for survival and many more are extremely endangered. This is the case despite government legislation to protect both environment and particular species of life. Unfortunately, too little is done and it is not unusual for legislation to be ignored,…
