[edit]Holidays and observances

Bob Brown joins fellow Greens Christine Milne, Lee Rhiannon and Clive Hamilton in praising angel boy Jonathan Moylan
“CEOs of fossil energy companies know what they are doing and are aware of long-term consequences of continued business as usual. In my opinion, these CEOs should be tried for high crimes against humanity and nature.’’
That was not me nor Christine Milne speaking in the Senate. It is a quote from the testimony of James Hansen, head of NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies in New York …
It is in Hansen’s context that I see the former National Party leader Mark Vaile’s bellowing about the sharemarket upset resulting from Jonathan Moylan’s false news release last week. But it is Moylan, not Vaile, who faces public ostracism and legal action and, speculation has it, may end up in jail. 
That’s because it is Moylan, not Vaile, who created a deceptive and destructive press release and lied about his identity. 
History is full of this. Gandhi and Mandela went to jail. Martin Luther King was assassinated. Jesus Christ turned up at the businessmen’s tables and look what happened to him. Anti-slavery campaigner John Brown’s ‘’body lies mouldering in the grave’’ and suffragette Emily Davidson was killed when she ran in front of the horses at the 1913 Epsom Derby. 
Create a fake press release and you’re instantly a combination of Gandhi, Mandela, King and Christ, with the moral authority of anti-slavers and advocates for universal voting. Nice that Captain Bobhasn’t lost any perspective in retirement. 
Where do we draw the line? It is drawn in our consciences. If the draw is beyond the law, we have to pay for it or default on our own beings. As the dictum says, all that evil needs to flourish is for good people to do nothing. 
Yep. The stock market and coal mining are “evil”. Brown has changed his opinion, yet again. While we’re quoting James Hansen, here’s something else he once said: 
On January 17, 2009 – NASA’s James Hansen told us that Obama had only four years to save the planet. The clock is ticking, as Obama only has seven days remaining to rescue the Earth. 
Can’t say we weren’t warned:

George Monbiot finds someone to blame
I wonder what Tony Abbott will say about the record heatwave now ravaging his country.

If the Greens approve of bogus press releases, I guess they’ll endorse this.

Catching up with our friends after the show, these guys were just truly amazing! #sydfest #concreteandbones #team9lives #summer #sydney


This bloke holds both a Bachelor of Economics and a Bachelor of Laws from Sydney University - he was a Rhodes Scholar - he is married with 3 daughters - he has the experience of being a senior Minister in the successful Howard Government - and for good measure he has run an ultramarathon in his 50’s – and he could be our next Prime Minister.

It’s easy to see why he drives the socialist left mad.
