Would have been better if she’d actually shredded, burned and banned Paris Hilton, but it’s a good start. The newsreader is Mika Brzezinski, the show is….ah who cares what the show is. Read the rest of this entry »

Visiting Berkeley Professor condemns Australia’s toxic forestry.

with 2 comments

“This is seriously wrong. The population is being poisoned. I have refused to drink the water in Tasmania and so should all Tasmanians.”

How much more Third World can Australia be than to allow this toxic substance into the air, the water and the food chain?”

Tasmania’s Pulp Mill ‘assessment’ – still more inbred than a royal family.

with one comment

We control political forces, we control moral forces, we control economic forces. Therefore we are a full-blown Corporative state. We stand for a new principle in the world, we stand for sheer, categorical, definitive antithesis to the world of democracy…from The Doctrine of Fascism, Giovanni Gentile & Benito Mussolini, 1932

One anagram of ‘Tasmania’ is ‘I am Satan’. Although I personally would put money on George Bush (either one) being Beelzebub’s errand-boy, southern revelations in the past month are of a State-level democracy that is surely gone to Hell – with Gunns a-blazing. The battle over a ‘proposed’ $2 billion pulp mill that will eat over 3 million tonnes of native forest annually while daily pumping 64 million litres of dioxin-laced effluent into Bass Strait is certainly taking on epic dimensions, at any rate.

With blood pressure-red face and follicles, his support for logging what remains of Eden, and reputed love of certain Bacchanalian delights, Premier Paul Lennon has been cast as Lucifer. It may mean mixed metaphors, but that would see Gunns’ CEO John Gay framed as Darth Sidius – not so much for his lightning skills as for his barely disputed role as the power behind the throne.

Just one more reason for indifference to Christina Aguilera

with 25 comments

Yo – pleeeeease drop a line in ‘comments’ to lemme know where you all come from. This page has been getting a squillion browses a day and it’s got me curious. Muchas Gracias. Happy Agui-leering.

–September 30/07–

Hardly a day goes by without a new sonic, ideological, written, or visual reason to despise Christina Aguilera. While we can all applaud the use of nipples in comedy, this is just plagiarism.Think about it – always desperate for media attention and hoping for the kind of hype and public outrage that Janet Jackson unleashed on easily astounded Americans just a couple of years ago during the Superbowel, what does the unoriginal, clonetastic, anti-sounds-with-substance Christina NoSoul do?

Environmentally Friendly Logging – clearly a load of shit

with one comment

Thanks to Jill Redwood for a great little cartoon that says it all quite clearly. Timber

Communities of Australia are so full of shit that they need rectal firehosing because the toilet paper from 8 million tonnes of Australian old growth each year just won’t do it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 And while we’re on the topic of people more active in the production than eradication of shit by the shitload, let’s have a shout out to Jennifer Marohasy. Her blog used to be promoted as environmental and political, because promoting it as a blog of hypocrisy and ignorance would have been too obvious. Read the rest of this entry »

Breaking News – Exxon reps ‘arrested’ in Canada over latest climate policy

with 3 comments

Thursday June 14, Alberta, Calgary:

The 2007 Gas & Oil Exposition (GO Expo) was rocked today by the forward-looking keynote address delivered by Shepard Wolffe – spokesman for George Bush’s key advisory, the National Petroleum Council (NPC), and mouthpiece for its Chief, former ExxonMobil CEO, Lee Raymond. Wolffe was accompanied by current Exxon rep Florian Osenberg.

It was expected that Wolffe would announce the long-awaited, though undoubtedly industry-biased and ignorantly conservative, findings of the US Department of Energy commisioned study into climate change and possible impacts on energy policy. Read the rest of this entry »
