  • Issue 130 - Permaculture and activism
    • Abstract: Holmgren, David
      Permaculture is a design system for sustainable land use and living. It articulates and applies the design principles of nature in new ways appropriate to the energy descent era of industrial civilisation. These design principles are embedded in an ethical framework derived from the commonalities of indigenous and traditional cultures of place.

  • Issue 130 - Pesticides and drinking water supplies
    • Abstract: Amis, Anthony
      There is increasing concern in the community about the indiscriminate use of pesticides across the landscape. One major concern is the use of herbicides to spray road verges. Many verges also act as drainage lines and pesticides, used inappropriately, can wash into local waterways following such spraying. A quick drive around any major highway or town reveals dead grass and weeds, often light brown in colour, in contrast to unsprayed areas which are usually green. on the side of many roads and highways. Tens of thousands of kilometres of roadsides are sprayed each year in Australia. How many of these roadsides are located in domestic water supplies'

  • Issue 130 - Nuclear power's annus horribilis
    • Abstract: Green, Jim
      This year will go down with 1979 (Three Mile Island), 1986 (Chernobyl) and 2011 (Fukushima) as one of the nuclear industry's worst ever - and there's still another six months to go. Two of the industry's worst-ever years have been in the past decade. There will be many more bad years ahead as the trickle of closures of ageing reactors becomes a flood - the International Energy Agency expects almost 200 reactor closures between 2014 and 2040. The likelihood of reactor start-ups matching closures over that time period has become vanishingly small.

    • Abstract: Wareham, Sue
      July 12 - In New York at the United Nations we have just witnessed historic progress towards realising the goal of a nuclear weapons free world. Late last week, the UN adopted the new 'Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons', to prohibit states from developing, testing, producing, manufacturing, acquiring, possessing, stockpiling, transferring, deploying, stationing, using or threatening to use nuclear weapons, under any circumstances.

    • Abstract: Taubenfeld, Robin
      My brow is a bit more furrowed, but we have made it safely back home. Talisman Saber 2017 has only just begun on the coast of central Queensland but our biennial pilgrimage to the site of these huge US-led nuclear weapons capable military exercises has come to an end. The school holidays are over. It's time for kids to get back to school and for adults to do... whatever adults do: paying the bills, washing the uniforms, packing lunches, going to work and thinking about the military-industrial complex in our free time!

  • Issue 130 - Around the world, environmental laws are under attack
    • Abstract: Laurance, Bill
      As President Donald Trump mulled over whether to pull out of the Paris climate agreement, it is hard to imagine that he was listening to the experts. US climate researchers are being so stifled, ignored or blackballed that France has now offered sanctuary to these misunderstood souls. One might prefer to think of Trump as an outlier in an otherwise environmentally sane world. But alarmingly, there's just too much evidence to the contrary.

      Bonn - May 2017: Addressing climate change has always involved far more than simply trimming emissions or promoting renewable energy. Deep questions about justice run through these United Nations negotiations underway here in Bonn. And few run deeper than what role the world's indigenous peoples need to play at these talks.

He also stressed that efforts to pursue these goals should be "technology agnostic" - that is, the best solutions should be chosen on merit, regardless of whether they are based on fossil fuels, renewable energy or other technologies.

The opposition has pledged to scrap the Andrews government's popular Victorian Renewable Energy Target (VRET) policy that will create 10,000 jobs, attract $2.5 billion investment to the state, and cut power sector emissions by 12%.

      The recent media focus on South Australia's blackouts has brought to the surface the festering problems of the National Electricity Market (NEM) system that serves SA and the eastern states. On the one hand, an oligopoly of mostly private corporations owns and manipulates the system to their own benefit. On the other hand, despite repeated studies showing Australia could easily go to 100% renewable energy, governments talk of new coal power stations and even grant extensions to existing, highly polluting brown coal generators.

      Just moments after October's unprecedented storm in South Australia knocked over 20 transmission towers, cutting power across the state, fossil fuel backers pounced. Their goal? Use the blackout to defame renewables and protect their own interests. As emergency crews assisted South Australians during the extreme weather, federal Coalition Ministers exploited the natural disaster, rapidly blaming renewables. Their goal? Distract the public from their failure to act on climate change and prevent state governments from leading with their own ambitious renewable energy targets.

  • Issue 128 - Six things that won the #VicGasBan
    • Abstract: Paris, Nicola
      August 30 - Today it was announced by the Andrews Labor government that a permanent ban on unconventional gas is to be legislated in Victoria. It is a huge and significant announcement that will hopefully set an exciting precedent across the country. It was an amazing grassroots campaign that led to this victory. We were only involved in a small part of this campaign, and want to ensure that the big congratulations go to the Quit Coal collective and their Coal and Gasfield Free campaign with Friends of the Earth Australia, who worked collaboratively with Lock the Gate to pull off this extraordinary win, on the smell of an oily rag.

  • Issue 128 - A victory for rural Victorians
    • Abstract: Hearse, Catherine
      Victorian rural communities worked hard for a gas ban and achieved it this August. For five years they surveyed, congregated, organised, consulted, wrote, rang tweeted, and developed increasingly creative actions. Rural Victorians have demonstrated the formidable staying power that keeps generations of farmers on the land. They have made films, weathered consultations and inquiries and provided multitudes of submissions through changes of government and ministers. They've produced memorable visual actions and rapid, witty responses to criticism from industry, and developed powerful memes that overtook the twittersphere and social media.

  • Issue 128 - Moonscaping: Loss of vegetation in the suburbs
    • Abstract: Tan, Anne
      Take a walk along any street in the suburban Melbourne municipality of Whitehorse. Before long you will have found an example of moonscaping, a practice in which housing blocks intended for residential development are savagely razed and denuded of any vegetation following demolition of existing structures. Keep on with your travels and you will see block after block waiting to be developed, or in various stages of development. Common to these sites is that they are treeless with every remnant vegetation ripped out to facilitate bigger or higher density development on the land.

  • Issue 128 - The wrong side of history: Australia and extended nuclear
           deterrence
    • Abstract: Hawkins, Dimity; Kimber, Julie
      There has been much hand wringing at the thought of a Trump presidency. One issue has caused considerable alarm in foreign policy circles. If, by some miracle, Trump succeeds in November, he will have his hand on the nuclear trigger. But this concern, while great political fodder, is dangerously simplistic. It presupposes that there are "safe hands" when it comes to nuclear weapons. There are not.

  • Issue 128 - Mine voids: Big party, now for the hangover
    • Abstract: West, Michael
      Mining companies and regulators have gravely underestimated the costs of mine rehabilitation, leaving taxpayers in the gun for billions of dollars in clean-up costs, says Rick Humphries. He should know. Humphries was Rio Tinto's top adviser on land use before heading up mine rehabilitation for base metals group MMG. The environmental scientist has since "switched sides" to consult for conservation groups on mine closure.

  • Issue 128 - The great corporate takeover of our food
    • Abstract: Sales, Louise
      The Bayer- Monsanto tie-up comes in the wake of two other proposed megamergers involving US companies DuPont and Dow Chemical, and Swiss company Syngenta and ChemChina. This reflects a trend towards a cartel of just 3 companies controlling most crop seeds, chemicals and the food supply globally.

      Some of these technologies themselves increasingly resemble technified creatures from a dark world of myth. A beast that spews sulphur particles into the upper atmosphere, turning the earth a jaundiced yellow, or carbon dioxidegobbling ice machines patrolling the poles.

    • Abstract: Waren, Bill
      The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal is not so much about trade as it is about deregulation and forcing governments to pay corporations and wealthy investors for the cost of complying with environmental and other public interest safeguards. The TPP broadly restricts the policy space for governments to take effective environmental and climate action.
