           buying the spin
    • Abstract: Simons, Pat
      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 - Power for the people in the Macedon ranges
    • Abstract: Fleming, Alastair
      A game-changing renewable energy initiative is up and running here in the Macedon Ranges. Not only is this pioneering project delivering cheaper, clean electricity to tenants at the Black Forest Mill, outside Woodend, but it is also helping to reduce the use of fossil fuel-generated energy in the Macedon Ranges.

  • Issue 128 - Community energy in Victoria: State of play
    • Abstract: Gayfer, Em
      The renewable energy sector has had a rough few years, with policy uncertainty at the federal level leading to lengthy periods of instability. This period led to jobs losses and stalling in investment, with shovel-ready projects across Victoria left without any capability to get off the ground.

    • Abstract: Bertolus, Jack
      The fossil fuel divestment movement is big and growing. So far, 612 institutions and more than 50,000 individuals worth US$3.4 trillion have made some sort of commitment to divest.1 Having spread from university campuses in the US to Australian institutions like the Australian National University, the National Tertiary Education Union and most recently the Queensland University of Technology (QUT)2, this movement is intrinsically linked with the tertiary education sector.

      The Queensland and NSW governments are rushing to approve the biggest coal mines Australia has ever seen, such as the Adani and Alpha Mines in central Queensland. The Queensland government recently invoked special powers to ensure the controversial Carmichael coal and rail project starts next year and to cut red tape for the $21.7 billion Adani venture.

  • 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

    • 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.

    • 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.

      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.

      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.

The power to shape or dominate the 'story', to define what's 'real', what's valued, what counts, what's visible, what's invisible. The power to shape organisations, institutions, cultures, subcultures, shared meanings, shared expectations, shared myths. The power to provide or withhold information, to gate-keep access to information, to define what information is valid and to be trusted. The power to develop and maintain hierarchies, to control decision-making, to use subtle and overt forms of propaganda to marginalise dissent and local autonomy.

The government's subsequent attempt to impose a dump on Aboriginal land in the Northern Territory was even more thuggish and even more racist. But that also failed. Now the Australian government has embarked on its third attempt to establish a nuclear waste dump and it has decided to once again try to impose a dump on Aboriginal land in SA despite clear opposition from Traditional Owners.

      Healthcare workers vicariously experience many facets of human life, with social, economic and cultural factors influencing the health or ill-health of patients. The environment, too, influences and interacts with our bodies and well-being. There are the positives of outdoor activity for exercise, vitamin D, and the feeling of biophilia (that affinity we feel for nature). There are also numerous negatives, as practices that damage the environment also adversely affect our health - think of coal mining and the occupational lung disease pneumoconiosis, the profound air pollution affecting many large cities and driving respiratory illnesses, the way climate change is altering ecosystems and fostering the spread of disease, or the numerous hospitalisations that come with 'extreme heat' days.

    • Abstract: Evans, Phil
      Two years after construction began, Whitehaven Coal's Maules Creek mine continues to expand into the critically endangered woodlands of the Leard, but not without resistance. Both the miners have been given approval to clear the forest - but only in a six-week window from February 15 to March 31. This short period is to protect the 34 threatened or endangered species in the forest from clearing during breeding or times of torpor - a hibernation like state during the colder months. Another condition is that clearing must not happen if the temperature rises above 35 degrees. Local ecologist Phil Spark explains that, "The 35 degree C limit was set because when it is too hot the animals hide in their hollows to conserve energy. Clearing during this heat results in higher mortality."

      The Royal Commission established by the government of South Australia to investigate options for nuclear expansion has released its interim report. Australia's role in the nuclear fuel cycle is currently limited to uranium mining and export. The Royal Commission is negative about almost all of the proposals it is asked to consider. It concluded that uranium conversion, enrichment and nuclear fuel reprocessing will not be economically viable for the foreseeable future. It found that conventional nuclear power and small modular reactors will not be economically viable for the foreseeable future.

  • Issue 126 - Nuclear waste nightmares: USA, Germany, France
    • Abstract:
      On Valentine's Day 2014, a drum of packaged waste from the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) ruptured 2,150 feet (655 metres) underground in New Mexico's nuclear waste repository known as the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) which is carved from ancient salt beds. The incident was described as a heat-generating chemical reaction - the US Department of Energy (DOE) called it a deflagration rather than an explosion.

           of the Earth veteran June Norman
    • Abstract: Conor, Liz

  • Issue 126 - On the theft of power
    • Abstract: Moore, Kat
      Power is a funny concept. We refer to those "in power" as though it is something to be reviled and held in contempt. But what Paris confirmed for me was that power is held within all of us. It is up to us to step into it or to give it away - and this is a choice we make daily. I have long understood this as a theory, but it was Paris that forced me to recognise it within myself.

  • Issue 126 - Creative self-destruction and the climate
    • Abstract: Hamilton, Clive
      In his 2006 landmark report on how we should respond to the climate crisis, Nicholas Stern characterised global warming as an 'externality', a damage to others due to market activity whose cost is not met by those who cause it. Indeed, Stern characterised climate change as 'the largest ever market failure'. In other words, the problem of global warming arises because the market system is not working well enough, and if we could find a way to correct the fault then the problem would be solved.

  • Issue 126 - We can achieve sustainability - but not without limiting
           growth
    • Abstract: Diesendorf, Mark
      In an article on The Conversation, Steve Hatfield- Dodds argued that sustainability was possible in Australia without sacrificing economic growth.
