Draining the Australian swamp cairnsnews.org

Both Queensland Liberal senator George Brandis QC, Attorney General and recently appointed WA senator Peter Georgiou reportedly, have dual citizenship but are not included in this list.

 

These Members of Parliament soon will have to declare their dual citizenship under Section 44 (ii) of the Commonwealth Constitution of Australia, which will prevent them from sitting in Parliament. The political party controlled High Court created this mess in 1999 when it declared Britain as a foreign power. (Sue-v-Hill)

Barnaby Joyce and Steven Ciobo get Chinese government funds for Indias Adani coal mine cairnsnews.org

22 November 2017: Bob Katter MP, Federal Member for Kennedy,  is furious former Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce took part in selling Adani to China after news the Adani Group is close to securing finance for its coal mine and railway track in coming weeks with Chinese state-owned enterprises, banks, and export credit agencies backing the venture.

Media reports a director of Adani Mining said just days ago they would no longer need funding from Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (NAIF) and a formal announcement of a financial close was imminent. It was reported in The Australian on Nov 14th Former Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce and Trade Minister Steven Ciobo wrote to top Chinese officials to vouch for Indian giant Adani. The report said they sent a letter to the chairman of Chinas powerful National Development and Reform Commission saying they welcomed foreign lending to support the development of major projects in Australia.

Katter calls Liberals Barnaby Joyce and Steven Ciobo traitors for brokering Chinese Government funds to help Adani open Australias largest coal mine creating thousands of Chinese jobs in Central Queensland

If you sell your country out, then youre a traitor, Mr Katter said.

Great! Egret similarities breed contretemps tyto tony

Eastern Great Egret stands amid mixed mob of 100 or so egrets, ibises and spoonbills clustered in fast diminishing reedy shallows today showing off breeding plumage and accompanying dark bill.

And the usual aggression against others of its species: ditto Little Egrets and Intermediate Egrets. Spoonbills and ibises - more sociable flock feeders - ignored the skirmishes around and above them.

Elsewhere, Leaden Flycatchers seen busily beginning nest early in the week (and completed yesterday) lost the lot overnight. Selfish thought: they'll build again, but probably without being spotted and offering photo opportunities.

Also unlikely, more sightings of Burtons Snake Lizard, seen above in the middle of Town Common road during a spotlighting drive. Lack of working legs didn't stop it hot-footing it into roadside grasses. (It may have been more than coincidence seeing slimmer but t...

First month in Cairns.. Cairns

So I've just moved here, awesome!

Some things that i've noticed:

*Suburbs- After looking around for places to live before coming I was set on northern beaches- it appealed to me. While some places did look good, many were outdated and the crawling traffic in the morning and afternoons turned me off it a bit. After checking out about 20 rentals and open homes, I think there is some excellent and bad areas in most suburbs. +1 for Edge hill & Freshwater.

*People- What a mix! Going to go very general here. The burnt and the backpackers in the city, the toothless commodore drivers of the Westcort/Woree/Manoora, The Hippies and retirees of Machans/Holloways, The activewear gals of Redlynch (ty). But all in all- friendly and welcoming.

*Nature- Highlights have included- snakes and creepy crawleys. Wonderful green peaks and streams. Weather is nice (coming from Darwin anything probably is). Ability for accessible adventures within 3 hours is enormous.

*Questions- Do the hoards of Asian tourists have fun at Kuranda? Where is the best coffee? Where is the best tapas?

Scorecard reveals how party policies stack up on protecting the Great Barrier Reef Fight For Our Reef

A scorecard, out today, reveals how the Great Barrier Reef would fare according to promises made by the major political parties standing in Saturdays state election.

The Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS), an independent and non-partisan national environment organisation based in Queensland, compiled the following scorecard:

AMCS Fight For Our Reef Campaign Director Imogen Zethoven said Queenslanders are proud and protective of the Reef and expect their MPs to look after it.

Queenslanders are rightly proud that our state is home to the Great Barrier Reef, one of the worlds natural wonders. We expect our politicians, as caretakers, to do the right thing and look after our Reef and oceans. We also strongly support renewables over polluting coal.

We know coal kills coral, yet we still see political parties promising to build new coal-fired power stations and support new mega new coal mines. Its time they started listening to voters and for the sake of the 64,000 Queensland workers who depend on a healthy Reef back the renewable energy and storage boom already underway.

Our amazing ocean backyard is central to our identity and our lifestyle, and it is at risk from climate change, pollution and industrial development. We have a lot to lose.

The future of the Reef is in the hands of the next Queensland government. Whichever party forms government on Saturday, they must make sure our children and grandchildren can enjoy this amazing underwater world as much as we do.

Queenslanders want a brighter future for the Sunshine State in which we look after our natural assets and create jobs that are local, long-term and sustainable, Ms Zethoven said.

Protestors peacefully disrupt Leaders Debate in Townsville, urging parties to reject Adanis mega coal mine "IndyWatch Feed Enviro.au"

Townsville, 22nd November: Just days out from the Queensland election, protestors have disrupted the Leaders Debate in Townsville, taking to the stage to call on Queenslands politicians to Stop Adani building one of the worlds largest coal mines, which would cook the climate and wreck the Reef. Four of the protestors were later removed by police and have been taken off-site in a paddy wagon.

Its just crazy for any politician to think of giving a billion dollars to a billionaire for a giant dirty coal mine when the Reef is dying before our eyes. If we want our children to have a safe climate, we simply cant be building new coal mines. said Liisa Rusanen, mother of two, Coffs Harbour

We are in a crisis. Our children and grandchildren face a polluted planet. We need our political leaders to stop supporting new coal mines. We all need to stop Adani. Said Jonathan Cassell, Emerald Beach.

This mornings action is one of dozens that have put Adanis mega mine front and centre of the Queensland election. Around the country, thousands of people are taking action, including at the site of the proposed project, putting their bodies on the line to stop work on the mine. Recent polling indicates that the majority of Australians do not support the mine.

Australia: People Blockade Work on Adani Rail Line "IndyWatch Feed Enviro.au"

from FLAC

UPDATE: 5 of the protestors were arrested for contravening police orders and blocking a road. They have been released on summons.

November 21st: A multi-faith group of six peaceful protestors are blocking work on the rail line from Abbot Point to the Galilee Basin to protest Adanis proposed mega-coal mine.  The protestors are all members of the Australian Religious Response to Climate Change (ARRCC), a multi-faith organization that works with diverse faith communities to tackle global warming.

Among the protestors are a Uniting Church Minister, the Reverend Alex Sangster, and a member of the Triratna Buddhist Order, Tejopala Rawls. Other participants are from the Catholic and Quaker traditions.

ARRCC President, Thea Ormerod said Stopping Adanis mega-coal mine from being built is a moral issue. People around the world are already losing their lives and livelihoods, and species are going extinct because of the damage we are doing to the earths climate. Today we call on people of all faiths to join us in taking a stand for those already being impacted by climate change, for future generations and for the Great Barrier Reef.

Ms Ormerod said her organisation had decided to engage in civil resistance because other avenues were not working. For ten years, ARRCC has drawn this issue to the attention of elected representatives and business leaders. We have done everything we could within the law to prompt our leaders to take action to move Australia away from dependency on coal, oil and gas.

Non-violence is at the heart of all the major faiths. We will continue to use all legal options open to us to convince our leaders to act for climate justice. However, where necessary, people of faith must not shy away...

People of Faith Blockade Work on Adani Rail Line "IndyWatch Feed Enviro.au"

Reverend Alex Sangster, a Uniting Church Minister, participating in the protest, said, Adani wants to dig the biggest coal mine in Australian history. Pollution from the mine will dwarf the emissions of whole countries such as Bangladesh and Malaysia, and the rail link would allow the development of other mines in the Galilee Basin, with all that added devastation. As people of faith we cannot stand by and be silent. We will resist the defeatism of easy despair and we will put our bodies on the line for our vulnerable earth. This mine will not go ahead.

Tejopala Rawls, an ordained member of the Triratna Buddhist Order, also participating in the protest, said, Australias leaders remain in denial about both the science and the moral implications of actively promoting new coal mines. At a time when the only decent thing to do is to take urgent action to curb carbon emissions, mining companies are given protection by governments and our le...

Labors nose in front in Qld: poll "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

A nose in front: Queensland premier Annastacia Palaszczuk AAP Image/Dan Peled

BRISBANE [AAP]

Queensland Labor has its nose in front of the LNP with just days left until the state vote.

A ReachTEL poll, for Sky News, has Labor ahead of the LNP 51 per cent to 49, after preferences.

Labor is also ahead on the primary vote, with 34 per cent of Queenslanders saying theyll vote for the incumbent party, to the LNPs 30 per cent. One Nation has 17 per cent support, while the Greens are on 10 per cent.

This is the first time that Labor has gained the lead in a two-party result, in a ReachTEL poll. So its certainly a move, ReachTELs James Stewart has told Sky News.

ReachTEL also polled voters in three marginal seats.

Labor and One Nation are neck and neck in the Labor-held seat of Thuringowa, with both parties on 50 per cent in the Townsville-based electorate.

The contest for the LNP-held seat of Whitsunday has One Nation on 50.5 per cent to Labors 49.5 per cent.

In Brisbanes western suburbs, Labors Local Government Minister Mark Furner is expected to hang on to the marginal seat of Ferny Grove, with the poll suggesting hell manage 54 per cent of the vote, to the LNPs 46 per cent.

Anning defection hits One Nation

But the defection of former One Nation senator Fraser Anning has hurt the partys prospects in the Queensland election, another poll suggests.

A statewide Galaxy poll for The Courier-Mail, conducted late last week, shows two out of five Queenslanders are now less likely to support Pauline Hansons party.

Senator Anning split with One Nation an hour after being sworn in in Canberra, claiming Senator Hanson forced him out, but the One Nation leader says he quit.

The Galaxy poll of more than 1000 Queenslanders showed 41 per cent are less likely to hand their vote to One Nation because of what happened in Canberra.

But it also found 46 per cent of poll respondents werent influenced by the defection, and seven per cent are now more likely to back the party.

Senator Hanson will hit the campaign trail in her battler bus again on Tuesday, after taking...
