Malcolm: show us what you can do at the meeting in Paris
. The fact that you are only a puppet, a  conservative and only an economist need not stand in the way of real big climate change  policy.

Together we triumph over adversity............wilderness society
People's Climate March

Sunday, November 29, 2015

People's Climate march today.  People were heading from the four corners towards the Sydney Domain where the predominate message was for political action to combat climate change aimed especially at the meetings in Paris.

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!

 Westeros and the kaaba. 
 Westfield will expect people to flock around the latest additional area on the top floor.  Really, the photo does no justice to the box like simulacrum. 
Christmas shoppers looking for a park will find themselves busy circulating around. The construction crane when ahead during an extremely bad weather event earlier on.

Looks like the concrete spheres have been relocated to harbour side.

Baby formula is in short supply. Our supplies have gone overseas.
Regular powered milk is not an inferior product. It is full of nutrition, free of additives, economical and is on the supermarket shelves. It must be the very same product as that of specialized baby formula.
  Regular powered milk was previously used as infant formula by diluting the milk to make it suitable for the newborn and then gradually increasing the strength of the mix. A few vitamins likely added. 
 Evaporated milk is no way inferior and was also used in various strengths, it was recommended at times. None of theses are exactly human milk, unmodified, but one survives on them if that is good enough.
 Just imagine, fresh cows milk was the most readily available product.

 Baby formula has a price tag. It has become a money making commodity that we are dependent on and hooked on.
 Countries in the region increase their demand. Is it far reaching for they were not traditionally consumers of milk. Milk products, often sugary, are seen in their on line supermarket pages.  
 Every baby is subjected to all sorts of additives in the formula and which are taken for granted. Complex data and figures are printed all over the container. Safe, clean and green!!
 It is very advantageous to cover all the nutrition and modify the milk in that manner. Probably. Professional formula is an important benefit.
  As in the past, the right mix is required and use of too little powder to extend the purchase would be a problem when a more economical product could be a wiser move.
 After a short time, feeding progresses to solid food the content of which is under no scrutiny, its do your own thing.
  A teacher said that a lot of primary kids are not sturdy kids and don't stand up in class without lounging or leaning on the furniture. Children are found to have bizarre behaviours and obesity.  As a start we could lift our game about what we feed our tiny kids.

Nostalgia at Port'.
Any really famous name music albums that I had have all gone somewhere or other over the years.
Some were stolen.
One night, in a country close to here, we awoke when two local intruders accidentally switched the bedroom light on and it was difficult to say who got the biggest fright. The pair ran away fast.
 A few albums went missing and a birthday cake was taken away out of the fridge!
 Widespread blackouts or is it whiteouts that happened from time to time were not our favourite evenings.

National Mosque Open Day yesterday was a time to foster community - not difficult yet not easy. Visitors could meet, talk and question as well as partake of a very tasty lunch.
 Henna painting was an additional art.
