    You should well know ,you'll never get 100% agreement on anything, that's democracy.Of course if it's China, we'll all be told how to think.They'll still buy coal from other countries ,if we stop tomorrow. Nett result on pollution zot.
    Unless you get these main offenders on board, we are up sh*tter's ditch.

    The obvious most impact would be getting China,India and USA to get of their butts and do something now.

    You don't have to be a rocket scientist to know ,the impacts on global climate change:
    1) Huge world wide population growth, meaning demand for power and food.
    2)Burning fossil fuels increasingly.
    3)Clearing rain forests which provide the lungs of the world.
    4) Methane from animals and even rice paddies.Ironic that our cattle numbers in Oz, have dropped dramatically over the years.
    4) Chemical fertilisers with nitrous oxide retaining heat.

    I acknowledge the impact of humans on climate change, but as we know the weather is getting hotter, surely the NPWS and Local Councils can cut the flipping red tape and allow people who live near bushland to clear a safe barrier around their abodes.
    The Fed Govt also has to do more not later ,but now.
    What sh*ts me ,when we had the opportunity in the past to build more dams or raise the height of dams, the righteous said no ,think of the environmental impact.The rain water waste that goes out to sea is criminal.
    I may be wrong ,perhaps if the dam that flooded Brisbane a few years ago ,had far higher walls' lot of the damage could have been prevented.

    I reckon if we were China then we’d have catchments up north .
    Mega dams with a way of sending it around the country.
    Maybe pipes?
    Maybe during the wet season?

    if only it rained heaps every year at the exact same time.

    or
    Heaps of sunshine to utilise solar power.

    But but but, think of the nesting farnarkle birds who would be impacted by the dams.Let alone the green tree frogs.

    I’ve been thinking about adding but then I read this from Frank Discussion. This sums it up better than anything I could write.
    Anyone who doesn't live off grid has no right to an say anything" Ridiculous. We all have a right to make demands of our leadership. It's little wonder most Australians have no interest in lowering their carbon footprint because their leadership actively tells us that any effort we make is ultimately irrelevant and useless. Imagine we took this approach to World War 2? We didn't fight that on our own but we played a part.

    The Liberals may not be directly responsible for these particular fires but they are responsible for decades of ignoring science and deliberately taking policy cues from people like Alan Jones and not the CSIRO or the BOM (you know Government departments chock full of experts) which has left us in a position where we are now miles behind the 8 ball while the chickens come home to roost.

    They killed a carbon trading scheme
    They killed the mining tax (don't even get me started on how this happened- we should all get something out of the miners pillaging the joint)
    They invested in coal and waved it around in parliament
    They killed targets with Electric cars
    The list goes on and on and on and on and on but these were sensible, progressive policies that would have moved the needle on the debate-and to blame Bill Shorten for decisions made by leadership decades either side of him on the other side of politics is like blaming a bull for not being smart enough to ignore the matador.

    (The final paragraph is a killer)

    And while I am ranting grown men who hate on a 16 year old girl for having 16 year old opinions because they are threatened is utterly pathetic.

    You’ve spent some time in the NT, is it the Ord River that usually floods and sends shot loads of water down stream.
    Why that isn’t harvested or piped makes no sense to me.

    I was being Sarcastic. If we wait for everyone to be singing exact same tune Nothing will be done .. And you are saying because that will never happen we should do nothing ? The claim that China will never do anything and only buy coal from somewhere else is not necessarily true . You think they are not concerned with pollution in their cities ? They did have a zero population growth policy for a while too.

    Anyway heres a link for a bit of remedial study for DS and his mate Dee fer

    Yep the ord has a dam at Lake Argyle .
    It’s bloody beautiful up there.
    Fresh water crocs and Barra
    I asked the question while there about that.
    The answer I got was no state government want to pay.

    it would be a massive undertaking... but it is a no brainer in the long run.
    Same as solar.
    Once it’s done it’s all a bonus.

    He pushes the limit and he made a mistake in that case.

    But guess what I’d back his knowledge on so many issues over most and certainly you.

    Bahahaha

    Slandering people over months was just 'a mistake'.

    I suppose the toilet incident was too?
