Another air disaster. I recall several flights on Malaysian Air which makes it more relevant.
Apart from everything else, MAS air staff must be in shock over their losses this year. The attendants are lovely.

Requiem. Today, Australia ended the policies to combat climate change.
Don't forget the pioneers namely Kevin Rudd and later Julia Gillard the Greens and others in parliament. Even Howard had ideas on this issue.
Nothing positive is in the air.
Without the carbon tax we will all be wealthy. No need for cut backs to this and that to balance the budget we will have money coming out of our ears.

Our elected representatives exaggerate, for special effect, about climate change and say everyone asks us to get rid of the carbon tax and they list obscure problems that it causes. Everyone they meet complains - so they say. Instead, the MPs could offer some leadership.
While taking criticisms on board, it is an opportunity to raise the issues with the electors they meet and suggest the need for action on climate change, for them to think beyond their own expenses - put down to the tax - and be reminded of the price that we all need to pay for carbon emissons that cause the damage.

Warm solar power.
Coffee in the morning sun is the only place to be when the breeze becomes truly chilly.
The political dialogue could be improved a whole lot. Scrapping the carbon tax will save us x billions a day in energy costs mantra. Instead, say something useful and pertinent to climate change policies. Suggest we will pay dearly for our polluting energy consumption. It is up to us. There is no quick fix. But, with our politicians as conservative anti-intellectual hayseeds how can you expect any good climate change policies?
