There’s a chink in hydrocarbon’s armour a crack in their dam South Australia now has a renewables pot in her budget - remember that ‘small’ country – over there - now with a GNP vying with that of Russia - which gets enough sun-shine in two hours - to power the rest of the world for a week Well if that budget can be a home for a state battery one day then it might just be behind the solar surge another For carbon in the air continues to rise and behind that comes temperature rise - as night follows day So that pot might just be...

Writers Week should it not be Weak Writers? audible murmurs were heard from the Audience whenever renewables were mentioned - but were not responded to Should we not be shouting our dismay As the skippers of our countries Not only don’t see the iceberg But deny it exists And steam straight for it We will strike soon unless things change Some say in 50 years Some 20 I say from the NASA data so far Four & a half years Then what? At 1.5C, much will be the same as now With more storms and weather events And 2C? Flooding around the...

The devil and the deep blue sea

Life may be tolerable if we warm our world 1.5 degrees C at 2 degrees that’s unlikely To keep below 2C will mean all that coal and oil will need to be left in the ground and that will cause a financial crisis eight times bigger than the last Financial ruin versus planet ruin the suits versus the greenies it’s our choice suspect Homo sapiens is leaning towards the suits for whatever the individuals’ reasons will the wise one day steer us back to a happy medium? or are we stuck between that devil the dollar and the gradually...

The world-renowned scientist

The world-renowned scientist is often asked to explain the universe’s most baffling mysteries but he was stumped in May when he was asked to explain the rise of Donald Trump. “I can’t,” Hawking replied. “He is a demagogue, who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator.” However, he added that “a more immediate danger is runaway climate change.” He went on to say that humanity will have to move to a different planet in 1,000 years time. I’m already finding that if one talks too much about...

Stand up for SA

Posted by on Oct 5, 2016 in Blog | 0 comments

South Australia is a proud state rich in possibilities, clever people, ancient and continuing Aboriginal culture, creativity and breathtaking nature. Nuclear waste dumps potentially threaten our environment, current and future generations and the SA economy. The decision to import high level nuclear waste is a forever decision. Once we make it, there’s no going back. This is not a decision that a Government with any morals can make for thousands of generations of future South Australians. lt would only take 0NE human error or 0NE...

3 Seaview Rd Lynton SA 5062 13/06/2016 Skype: charlie.madden Dear Premier Weatherill Nuclear waste in SA While the Kevin Scarce’s Royal Commission report does briefly put some numbers to the risks of accidents and terrorist attacks on nuclear waste while it is being transported on ships, and shows it later being transferred by road and rail – NO numbers are put to the risks of accidents there. Scott Ludlam’s ‘Let the facts speak’ highlights the 12 major failures that have happened in nuclear reactors, there have been hundreds more....
