The whole debate is a minefield of keeping religious and political groups happy which seems to have led us down a path that is very weird. Here is a story on the ABC.

Senate:Federal Election.

The Australian double dissolution election means all the Senate seats are up for contestation (usually it is only half). What this means is that parties such as the greens and independents can win seats. It means we may actually have a democracy where views other than the majority can be expressed. The majority still has to vote new rules law etc. in. So good luck to independents, minor and smaller parties. Turnbull must know this, that is the strangest thing. The master puppeteer is applying his trade.

Biodegradable bags not Degrading

New UN report out suggests that plastic bags in the ocean will outnumber the fish by 2050. The increase in temperature will, however, aid in degradation of the bags. Fish numbers declining may also help us reach this target far earlier than anticipated. so next tiem you think you are not contributing to progress look at your shopping bags.
