On cue, a cargo of fossil fuel sails from the harbour but how far will it get?

Do any telcos offer high speed internet via a land line without a phone service attached?  Maybe both are inseparable.
 Or who will be the first to offer the internet alone?
Going on line without a line is common enough with various devices. But the N B Network seems to mean that a physical line of connection is here to stay. And NBN is expanding in Newcastle right now, they say.

Stand Up For The Pacific is the T shirt message.  Activists against fossil fuel overuse. Coal industry - our protected mainstay, our insult to long term well-being nay even our survival.

Our poor cash strapped struggling nation prepared to sacrifice dwindling reserves to pay industry to do something that is less harmful to the environment. That is the latest.
Hope this does not mean industry will be rewarded for window dressing and paid for any hair brain scheme they come up with.
And plant trees. Wow.  This might balance out our land clearing ways.

Pacific island warriors man the battleships during protest action. One has a wardrobe malfunction.
A local is awarded for her environmental action, the details escape me, she said a huge number of Australians are wanting action to save the environment. Do they?
The big moves and legislation to combat climate change become prominent.
Indirectly we are involved in the implications of these structural changes. But not a lot is aimed at us personally to be more sustainable.
We drive and fly and consume as if there is no tomorrow. Literally? It is very difficult to change.

Pacific Island visitors.  Impressive citizens, tats, finely carved outrigger, tapa cloth, oars and axe.. And there is a close relationship with the sea who is their friend and foe.

Pacific Islanders. As they say - we are not drowning we are fighting!
Getting ready for action to draw attention to rising sea levels and the effects of global warming.
