Are we really making progress?
Here in the NT, Andrew Liveris is, without a doubt, the driving force behind current plans to speed up progress in developing industry and creating jobs.
Is he a competent person to be in this position?
At this point in time, is he the right person to be in this position.
Because, while development of the production and use of gas has been one of his major concerns, we are now at a point in our history when it is critical that we move away, ASAP, from using fossil fuels.
Yes – Mr Liveris is an astute businessman, and he has accumulated a considerable fortune in the course of his lifetime.
But – no – continuing to develop fossil fuel resources is the totally wrong thing to be doing now!
Changes in the world’s climate are becoming increasingly evident, and lives, livelihoods AND the environment are paying the price.
The sooner we divest from fossil fuels, the better.
We need to concentrate on renewable energy, develop the production of electric vehicles, establish charge up stations in all remote areas, by establishing solar and wind ‘farms’, with associated apparatus to store the energy which is generated, and ensure that these developments are made the top priority.
If we have an election this year, we need to ensure that whoever gains a majority, is prepared to develop the programs needed for the Australian people to be more likely to move into an era where their needs are given top priority.
At the moment, Australia is a pariah state, due entirely to the failure of the Coalition government to take effective action to recognise that the world is changing and life on Mars is far from imminent!
Scott Morrison might have been a moderately successful salesman – he has certainly bamboozled his political peers into buying into his pseudo policies – but his realistic concern for people’s needs is absolutely non-existent and every policy he announces is doing more and more damage to our future.
He and his cronies MUST GO!
As must our dependence on fossil fuels.
COME ON AUSTRALIA!

PS Having had a mild stroke in January, I am even more determined that I will do everything I can to force governments to take heed of the need to transition to renewable energy – ASAP!
take care RosemaryJ36, we need more like you
@RosemaryJ36: Take care and recover quickly, we need your astute insights into the machinations of the worst series of so-called ”misgovernments” since Federation in1901.
Are we really making progress, you ask, yeah, we are. 4 more species extinct, an ecosystem on the verge, braindead arseholes in power, an opposition unable, unwilling, incapable of doing their job. Yeah, doing real well.
RosemaryJ36, that is very naughty of you – getting sick and all that selfish stuff 😉
Seriously, though, please do look after yourself – the world has too few people of your calibre.
More to the point, you deserve better – so get better 🙂
Many thanks for the good wishes!
Rosemary, you are well-loved, respected and admired.
You are the torch bearer for all of us.
