    Just sharing articles of interest Father. Aren't we looking at $7.4 billion to repeal the carbon tax? But I guess we are saving all that money now that we don't have a science minister, plus the 12000 odd scientists at CSIRO they want to get rid of (not even going into other areas they are cutting funding) It's clear that this govt doesn't care much about science. The rest of the world are shaking their heads at Australia and it's position on science and climate as portrayed by the current government Father.

    Looks like the Greens have kicked an own goal in Germany. Due to demanding the closing down of nuclear plants after Fukushima and being against natural gas, Germany are now building brand new coal plants. And lots of them!

    You think a minority party not in power in Australia were the reason Germany closed down their nuclear plants?

    While coal is clearly not the answer, are you seriously suggesting that nuclear power is good. Really? After what happened in Fukishima....Chernobyl....Three mile. The list is actually quite big, there have been 99 so far.

    If countries actually invested in clean energy there would be far less need for nuclear and non renewable power sources. Soon the coal will be all gone. Nuclear is not safe. I watched an interview with the Israeli prime minister shortly after the Japanese disaster and he said they had scapped plans for nuclear and had found natural gas reserves off the coast. When asked why, he said we don't want another Fukishma.

    Father - I misunderstood you. I thought you were referring to our Greens.

    I don't really see how you can attribute this to the greens in Germany? Environmentalists there are not happy about the situation either and calling for change. You have neglected to mention that they have also put in clean energy sources. This article gives a bit more information than your image
