There are no magic bullets or instant cures.

Hard work, perseverance, judgment – these are some of the skills and tools to enable improvement.

The ‘Teals’ are a collection of small ‘l’ liberals who understand the need for urgency in acting on climate change.

They are not stuck in a time warp, like the nationals and the right-wing of the liberal party, because they are intelligent, educated much more highly and widely than many of the population and more than capable of getting honestly involved in discussion.

The new Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese, would do well to use their skills to help him improve his plans for reducing emissions – fast!

Included in that we need urgent plans to re-educate the parts of the workforce which will become redundant as fossil fuels are phased out.

Australia is long overdue for a new plan for the future. So many issues are involved and intermeshed that it is a complex issue which requires really urgent attention.

We CAN do it but everyone MUST accept that the whole landscape of life is in processes of change to which we must adapt.

I grew up in war-torn England, and only realise, looking back, that we had massive shortages which we accepted because winning the war was essential.

Life is no longer ‘normal’.

Covid-19 has not gone away.

Emissions are being increased instead of reduced.

Savagely different weather events are destroying homes and livelihoods.

CHANGE is coming in many unpleasant ways.

We DO have the means to cope and improve our situation BUT we have to accept that we cannot have our cake and eat it.

We MUST be put on a wartime footing where our war is on climate change!

AND we ALL have a part to play.

    Many thanks NEC!
    When we know we face disaster if we do not act NOW then survival looks a better option!

    “Hell hath no fury like a Teal scorned”
    Albo needs to put some substance in his vague claims about being a renewable energy champion or he will end up being more hated than Scummo.
    What’s it going to be Albo, save the planet or save 650 coal and gas mining jobs?

    There is no need to look for way to make the Teals relevant. The government has to press ahead under its own steam on carbon emissions.
    The Greens are a (relatively) disciplined political party, they can add their value in the senate.
    Policy relating to Australia’s indigenous people is where the new government can set the agenda, get people on board (during its honeymoon) and actually make a huge difference in the immediate future, and in the long term..
    * Move quickly to resource and support the process for a voice for parliament. Make it into a discussion about the form, not about whether it will occur
    * Redirect a substantial part of arts funding to indigenous art programs
    * With ALP governments in almost all states, make indigenous studies a compulsory part of the school curriculum
    * Get off your arse and leave potential opponents in your wake
    The public will get on board, and those opposed will become voice in the wilderness, as they should be.
    As much as climate change policy, this will enhance our international standing, particularly in the Asia Pacific
    Get on with it
