  1. Amanda,

    Glad you decided to post the story I found on the potential mega droughts in the southwest. People need to know. Even if we can’t stop it, we need to prepare.

    If only all those people out there denying that our actions are effecting the climate, had stopped and actually helped us solve the problem instead. Maybe than we wouldn’t be facing this terrifying prospect in the future.

  2. Update on the “World Congress of Families”
    Federal Minister Kevin Andrews withdrew under pressure from the rest of the Senate
    Catch The Fire Ministries is now hosting the event (famous for blaming bushfires on abortion laws)
    There have been protests and arrests

    TL;DR Andrews, Abetz, Bernardi et al were caught, right up to their necks in it. Domestic politics in Oz right now is a disaster for the conservatives. A distraction is needed.

    The sooner we can start fthe business in Iraq the better as far as the PM is concerned.
