  1. Not sure where to put this. https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2020/1/8/21055228/australia-fires-map-animals-koalas-wildlife-smoke-donate
  2. The link is to a fairly good and thorough account of the effect of the fires. https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2020/1/8/21055228/australia-fires-map-animals-koalas-wildlife-smoke-donate
  3. Sometimes social media is entertaining, sometimes it is frustrating.
  4. I made the mistake of looking at some of the responses last night. idiocy is the word that comes to mind.
  5. I wonder how many of the people that are having a go at the Forrests for giving $20m in relief and $50m for worldwide research into the increase in forest fires and the development of a model to address the issue know that in 2013 they became to first Australians to join the Giving Pledge that based on their wealth at the time meant a commitment to give at least $2.5b in their lifetime for charitable purposes. It amazes me that people get so caught up in their own little world that they can't recognise good for what it.
  6. - Shorten wasn't well liked down here in Launceston during the rescue. - In my view there shouldn't be a need for a green party. Both sides of politics if they are doing their job should be looking after the environment as a matter of priority.
  7. Two things Wendy, firstly I'm a conservationist so I am not happy with the the Liberals response to climate change since Abbott rolled Turnbull to take leadership of the party on the issue. I see nothing contradictory between liberal/conservative philosophy and taking proper action against climate change so in my view the Liberals need to ignore the troglodytes in the party and get on with real action because it is the right thing to do. Secondly, I react strongly to bias wherever I find it because it doesn't help. It just gets in the way of moving forward to consensus. This young blokes diatribe does nothing positive just as recent inaccurate opinion pieces by Credlin and Jones challenging the "unprecedented" fire situation do nothing positive.
  8. I live in Launceston. What role did Shorten have in the rescue? I don't remember him being involved much. Matthew Gill, the Mine Manager, fronted the press on a regular basis and worked tirelessly as did the rescue teams to complete the rescue.
  9. As I said before it is totally biased and to hold up Shorten and Rudd's actions without pointing out that in most circumstances they were both power hungry arseholes shows the selective nature of the diatribe.
  10. I was impressed with Double Dot again. Very creative.
  11. They should have announced Morrison's leave and that as usual the Deputy PM would be acting PM and that Littleroud as Minister for Natural Disaster and Emergency Management was on hand to continue with all necessary interactions with the state government and that would have been fine.
  12. Agree with the hero bit but a PM of any party is on call 24 hours day 365 days a year except for whatever breaks they can arrange. That is a pretty big commitment in my view.
  13. Probably the best we have played all season but again we throw the game away when defensive players overcommit in our attacking half and we get caught the break.
