Insolvency isn’t the only predatory practice of some in the business community against the community. Mr Harbourside Mansion had assets in the Cayman Islands, SABMiller sells almost $9 billion of beer in 4 years yet pays no tax, Franchisees have a business model the requires the underpayment of staff, phoenix companies still abound – where’s the Royal Commission into the regulations regime of Australian business?https://tasmaniantimes.com/2019/01/insolvency-a-predatory-practice-gunns-plantations-liquidation/
It is indeed time to take out environment ministers who fail on climate change. For a Liberal, Nollie Yates make a good environmentalist.https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/jan/30/its-time-to-take-out-environment-ministers-who-fail-on-climate-says-oliver-yates

Fault lines are no barrier to safe storage of carbon dioxide, study shows. The Carbon Capture and Storage cabal don’t give up. First they have to capture it (only efficient in some industry, not in electricity generation), then they have to transport it, then they have to store it. There are no commercially viable examples despite many years and millions of dollars trying to show that this red herring is not a stinking fish. How about not producing it in the first place?https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2019-01/uoe-fla012419.php

You have to ask on which planet does ‘power baron’ Trevor St Baker, and it seems his shill Energy Minister Angus Taylor, live? New coal plants? It is not as though the consequences of runaway carbon emissions are unknown to us, bunkered down as we are awaiting a 45ish degree day.
Where can we get a Prime Minister like Jacinda Arden?
Maelor’s full list to go with previous email, sorry.
