TAYLOR FAILURE

By |2022-05-20T10:15:27+10:00May 20, 2022|Angus Taylor, climate change, coal, emissions reduction, POLITICS, Scott Morrison|

This very self-explanatory graph (thanks to Graham Readfearn, The Guardian) is something that Emissions Reduction Minister Angus Taylor and current Prime Minister Morrision would prefer you didn't see. For the sake of the environment and our children's futures, hopefully, by this time next week, it won't be Taylor making [CLICK TO READ MORE]

Morrison’s trickery and deception is clever, but we know him now!

By |2022-04-19T16:29:03+10:00April 19, 2022|coal, COP26, global warming, Morrison, Scott Morrison, truthfulness|

Does Morrison even understand hydrogen technology as a renewable energy source? Hydrogen hubs are being touted as the next good thing in the renewable energy industry, but mostly only in Australia. This weekend, Morrison has promised 2 new hydrogen hubs for Western Australia, which would seem to be yet [CLICK TO READ MORE]

AUSTRALIANS ARE BEING SHORTCHANGED BY GREEDY MINERS

By |2022-01-17T17:04:32+11:00January 17, 2022|Chevron Oil, greenhouse gases, mining royalties, taxes & royalties, Woodside|

A "Gas-fired robbery" report has been released by the Australia Institute revealing that the operators of Australia's giant offshore gasfields are paying next to no royalties.

INTEGRITY … WHAT INTEGRITY?

By |2021-12-07T08:18:41+11:00November 27, 2021|#rockflatblog, Christial Porter, Gladys Berijiklian, Integrity Commission, Michaelia Cash, POLITICS, Religious Discrimination Bill, Scott Morrison, truthfulness|

The long awaited introduction of legislation for a Commonwealth Integrity Commission (CIC) has again been stalled, or perhaps a better description is stymied as a majority in the government have “prevented or hindered the progress” of the bill or in fact any discussion. The government has never wanted an [CLICK TO READ MORE]

A GOOD NEWS STORY! BRIDLED NAILTAIL WALLABIES BACK FROM THE BRINK

By |2021-11-25T10:42:55+11:00November 25, 2021|conservation, feral cat, GOOD NEWS!, native animal|

In 2008, there were just 65 bridled nailtail wallabies at the Taunton National Park, which is about 135 kilometres inland from Rockhampton in Queensland. After 13 years of conservation, a survey conducted earlier this year showed numbers had risen to an estimated 1,300. Apart from human conservation efforts, the wallabies have [CLICK TO READ MORE]

MORRISON’S SUPPORT OF UNORTHODOX ABC ENQUIRY IS A MISTAKE!

By |2021-12-07T08:22:46+11:00November 16, 2021|#rockflatblog, ABC enquiry, Andrew Bragg, POLITICS, Scott Morrison|

Morrison has backed a Senate inquiry into the ABC’s handling of complaints. The enquiry was instigated by Liberal senator Andrew Bragg, possibly at the behest of a disgruntled Fox News after the ABC decided not to act on any of Fox’s complaints about the Four Corners program about Fox News.

EV vs CCS – THE UNFORTUNATE CHOICES OF MORRISON & TAYLOR

By |2021-12-07T08:24:18+11:00November 12, 2021|#rockflatblog, Angus Taylor, carbon capture, electric vehicles, POLITICS, Scott Morrison|

It’s a poor reflection on the knowledge that Scott Morrison has on the climate crisis, and if Angus Taylor has any more clues as to what the problem is, he’s certainly not letting on. After scorning most of the developed world with his half-baked ideas at COP26 Morrison has arrived [CLICK TO READ MORE]

THIS RECALCITRANT COALITION GOVERNMENT IS AT IT AGAIN

By |2021-12-07T08:24:56+11:00November 11, 2021|#rockflatblog, global warming, Great Barrier Reef, POLITICS, Uncategorized|

The Australian government says that major [CLICK TO READ MORE]

THE ARREST OF GLOBAL WARMING – CARBON CAPTURE IS NOT ENOUGH!

By |2021-12-07T08:25:37+11:00November 10, 2021|#rockflatblog, carbon capture, carbon sequestration, emissions reduction, global warming, hydrology|

Carbon capture and storage and carbon sequestration are often confused, and the difference confusing, especially when influential people such as Angus Taylor talk about it with his politicians hat on. Carbon capture and storage or CCS is referred to here as an artificial, non-biological technology for capturing carbon before [CLICK TO READ MORE]
