Last train to Copenhagen (or, filibuster all the way to 4 degrees C)
Rarely do politicians listen to climate scientists, nor is the atmosphere likely to cooperate with governments trying to obtain a “balance” between fossil fuel corporations, trade unions, environmentalists and the public. Not to decide is to decide.

Dog Days for the Liberal Party of Australia
What should have been the Coalition’s great asset – and only a complete curmudgeon would deny that Turnbull has that elusive X-factor, alone on his side of politics – is now a cumbersome liability. The messiah on the white charger has suddenly morphed into Richard Nixon and Mark Latham combined ...

Mabo native title laws inspire Bedouin claims
For a long time I have been baffled at the way no one else has looked at the similarities between the relationship to their traditional land of Bedouins and Indigenous Australians. ... It is quite common to come across arguments in the Israeli against Bedouins “encroaching on state land” and who have no title to it. They are some arguments used against Eddie Mabo’s claim before and after the court victory. (Joel Gibson)

An albatross swan song – Verse 6: Mona Loser, lunch, and some ghosts
On an earlier stay at the abode of Mona I attempted in vain to explain to her the English term “harmony”. I had to resort to song (which is bloody obvious when you think about it) and began singing Frère Jacques – she immediately laughed and then spontaneously harmonised in Mandarin.

"Integrity is not a conditional word. It doesn't blow in the wind ... It is your inner image of yourself..."
Probably two significant moments in my career that I hadn’t really thought about until around, funnily enough, the semi-final in the World Cup in 2003 after the well-documented walking incident in that match. That was the catalyst for me to start thinking and thinking why have I got this approach. (Adam Gilchrist on "walking")

Global Climate Change Impacts in the US
Observations show that warming of the climate is unequivocal. The global warming observed over the past 50 years is due primarily to human-induced emissions of heat-trapping gases. These emissions come mainly from the burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil, and gas), with important contributions from the clearing of forests, agricultural practices, and other activities. (US Global Change Research Program)

"We have an obligation to our own and to future generations to support this bill"
The charging of people who arrive on our shores seeking protection the costs of their detention is part of the way in which we have demonised them and presented them as being worse than criminals. And this image, I believe, underpins the abuses which have been discovered by inquiries into our mistreatment of people in detention. (Petro Georgiou)

Time's up
When Howard posed as the loyal and faithful servant of the Liberal Party by vowing to serve as long as the party wanted him, this was pure confected humility that served only to throw sand in Costello’s face and demonstrate to the party how powerless he really was. What Howard was boasting in this oft-repeated mantra was that he had the numbers, and his rival did not. (Norman Abjorensen)

An albatross swan song – Verse 5: Driving along on a Potomac, baby …
When I think of Kath I think of children, for Kath is a loving and devoted mum and it shows big time. But she is not alone, for most parents love their kids. To love your children is catholic and reflects the very simple but universal truth of Christianity. We love our kids and would die for them.
