We give thanks for a cooler, pleasant day.

  The emperor's new clothes is a traditional story and we could take a look at it again.
Superficially, nothing big has changed in our society to combat climate change.
 Our lifestyle is unaffected.  No one can complain about threats to their comfort - there are none.
 Debate and noise about the pros and cons of global warming is done for some reason or other.
The tension between personal action and structural change is observed.  Every small act of sustainability and conservation is commended but are these a 'drop in the ocean'?
 It takes much more than that to reduce our plunder. We must start at the top.

JOIN the climate march near you this weekend. In tune with the meeting in Paris.

Dry windy weather brings bush fires and they have taken a toll interstate. 39.1 outside.
El Nino  - there is no let up.
although weather reports for Jakarta and Java and Port Morsby in Papua New Guinea report thunderstorms.  They have been hanging out for the arrival of the monsoons.

Arborist.  Just after a jacaranda blooms its 'wings are clipped'.
Is 'arborist' a word? Spell check is outdone.

 A grand flock of cockies is usually based a few ks from this point but the tasty fast food trees drew them in.  The birds are terrific even when they give the trees a pruning. If you must plant conifers.

Do something grand
and join the crowds in Sydney on Sunday 29.  Join the cm train leaving 8.30.
  People's Climate March.

New  building on the corner of Stewart Avenue, fan shaped it suites the fan shaped corner.  Signs point to a car wash but that can't be correct! Although a poppet head was installed there as a reminder of the past then we moved on again.

Coal loaders are multiplying in the port of Newcastle.
The port has been leased lock stock and barrel to Chinese interests a deal that received some attention at the time.
Seems that the port of Darwin has been leased to a Chinese company provoking some concern as well.   The locals may receive a bonus if they are luck.  It would be crook if a sort of approval from Obama had to be sought.
Photos are at a disadvantage when you are on the move - I wasn't diving!
