    There's probably more when I think about it....I didn't feel aligned with most of their policies....

    How about TA spending a week with an indigenous community in his first week as PM?



    For the non clickers the clip is TA making a speech to the Yolngu community in Arnhem Land. TA says:
    "And why not, if you will permit me; why shouldn’t I, if you will permit me; spend my first week as prime minister, should that happen, on this, on your, country." as he looked across to the local Indigenous leader Galarrwuy Yunupingu

    I've just joined the new Climate council and made a donation. I can't really afford much - but I will be damned if I am going to sit back and do nothing while Tony Abbott and his cronies pretend there is nothing going on. This is people power to the max and it is SO exciting!

    I read on their Facebook page that they already received well over $200k in donations!

    Apparenlty that was in the first day. Can you imagine! Lets hope they don't lose their momentum. They have all agreed to work for free and donate their time. And all the conservatives would have you think Tim Flannery is a money hungry grub who got $180000k a year. Guess they have been proven wrong. Yet again.

    Seriously though - Tony Abbott voted yes that climate change as it is today is man made. How can anyone trust someone who goes against their own beliefs like that?

    Well. It obviously didn't need taxpayers dollars then. The government does not fund such a group. They pay for the BOM and CSIRO. That is enough.

    I say good on them and all the best.

    Where is your thread about George Brandis using tax payers money to fund a party and having to pay it back? Or do you only do those when it is Labor officials

    They only don't *need* taxpayers money, because a huge amount of Australian's believe in science (thank christ), having said that, I don't have much money to be donating. I am sure others are the same. I will do what I can - but I doubt it will be able to sustain itself long term, but I may well be surprised.

    It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling to know that most people are able to get past the rather loud and vocal climate denier groups - even though they are very small and give the impression that they are bigger than they really are.

    Yay for us, yay for Australia - with citizens like these, we may just stand a chance.

    And I notice you also haven't acknowledged the new IPCC report, why is that? Truth hurts? Totally blows all your theories out of the water. Again.
