Others take Paris Accord seriously
I recently returned from an eight-month trip which took me to China and southern Europe where I was pleased to see governments and businesses taking the Paris Accord seriously, killing nuclear power, closing gas and coal-fired power stations, investing massively in wind, solar, hydro storage and batteries and generally just pulling their weight for our tiny and overwrought planet.
It is dismaying to see my Australian Government and its Abbott-puppet Prime Minister aligning itself with the madmen of the Trump catastrophe in climate warming denial.
None of this immorality is helped by the bullying NSW Government as it rides roughshod over the interests of Central Coast citizens, in favour of the greedy interests of Korean coal corporations at Wallarah 2 and the vested interests of foreign oil corporations with the Petroleum Exploration Permit 11 off the Central Coast shoreline.
