Double Trouble ... "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

When it comes to addressing the planets climate change issues, the world is in desperate need of inspiring leadership, techno-innovation and political impetus, but for some inexplicable reason we are experiencing some of the most retrograde theatrics by prominent loons ever.  As the earth warms up, these deluded confidantes seem to be in a constant state of denial, and continue to preach that there is no case to answer, stating life may actually be better in some ways. Greens climate change and energy spokesperson Adam Bandt called Mr Abbott a dangerous fool who could be simply ignored were it not for his ability to dictate Malcolm Turnbulls climate policy

More on Gun Control & the Recent Firearms Amnesty. "IndyWatch Feed Tas"


We are seeing the use of terms such as "Illegal", "Arsenals" "guns off the streets" & other sensationalising terms. So who made these guns illegal in the first place? Our government. Some guns being handed in now date back to WW2. All these thousands of "Illegal Guns" have supposedly been "on our streets" since WW2 & we only had one mass shooting which was in Tasmania!!! Don't you think this sounds a little odd?

Now we are hearing about private "arsenals", not collections or ownership but arsenals. Well if these private "arsenals" are such a risk, considered so dangerous, how come we have not had mass shootings like they have had in America? The confiscation of law abiding gun owner's guns after the Port Arthur shooting did nothing to stop crime, because these guns BELONGED to law abiding gun owners. But now you might as well put a poster out front of every Australian home declaring "This House Not Protected With Firearms"!!! Now we are seeing regular home invasions, AND you can face charges if you try to defend yourself or your family. Australian women are attacked & assaulted every 2 minutes in Australia & all the government did was to cut funding to women's help centers!!!

Surely we should have the right to defend ourselves & our families from harm? Yet in Australia it is illegal to purchase or carry ANYTHING for use in self defence, no guns, no pepper sprays, no tasers, not even marking paint!

Is Talking About De-Extinction a Moral Hazard? - Facts So Romantic "IndyWatch Feed Tas"


 

Theres a saying, in conservation biology, credited to the plant ecologist Frank Egler: Ecosystems are not just more complex than we think, theyre more complex than we can think. With doomsday narratives swirling about nuclear war, the existential threat of artificial intelligence, and runaway global warming, its one we might want to constantly bear in mind. We are deeply interconnected with myriad species disappearing from complex ecosystemsand we might be next.

The end may not necessarily be the end, though. At least not for our genomes. In case an extinction event ever wipes us out we could theoretically (at some future point) program an artificial intelligence to survive the fallout and bring us back in a genetically similar form. Projects are already underway to recreate close versions of extinct species. Most advocates of de-extinction argue that it might allow us to restore depauperate ecosystems with animals that can carry out the ecological roles of extinct species. Some even say that bringing back a woolly mammoth, Tasmanian tiger, or passenger pigeon could help us atone for our ecological sins since we (though it is still debated for the mammoth) made those

Sue Neill-Fraser and a Petition of Mercy for Martin Bryant "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

(L) Vanessa Goodwin  (R) Sue Neill-Fraser

by Mary W Maxwell, LLB

Last Australia day (January 26, 2017), I went to Launceston to host a poetry reading in the park. Hardly anyone showed up, so I was able to talk to folks about the Sue Neill-Fraser case. One person said to me in a whisper The police did it, and it concerns drugs. I had no ability to follow up on that, and do not know the whisperers name.

Today I looked up the Neill-Fraser case and was surprised to see that the name of Tassies current attorney-general is Matthew Groom (son of Ray Groom). You may recall that Ray Groom stepped down as premier (inexplicably) just before the Port Arthur mass...

Please help me. I am in serious trouble ... "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

Tasmanian Times readers might remember my pleading letter to the Derwent Valley Council (DVC) to not approve the proposed limestone quarry at Roberts Rd, Maydena, just across the road from our old ANM property near Maydena (article linked below) Ivo Edwards in Comments: I think bookmakers would give great odds on us winning an appeal, but no doubt the DVC will present a team of the best and most expensive lawyers to represent them, so tough luck if we lose and have to pay their costs. But then again if we win and they have to pay the costs of our lawyer and the same $520 per hour for me lying in bed thinking about my strategies for a couple of hours each night, then that would be nice.  Probably better odds than poker machines to come out ahead eventually if we appeal, I think Jon Sumby in Comments: There are Things You Can Do
