Australia can show the way You might not think it, given the decade of political climate wars, but Australia is the world leader in terms of solar electricity produced per person.
The IPA is a hidden voice to parliament. However, they were and have never been recognised as owners of this nation or it’s first peoples. Andrew Bolt personally endows the IPA with respect and with special rights accrued. The fundamental argument Andrew Bolt puts forward is “forget the past”. Indigenous Australians like the IPA already have the opportunity of forming a united voice to parliament but because they aren’t as special or exceptional they haven’t become another IPA. In other words, 1778 was year zero in Terra Nullus Australia when history began,
Fundamentally, Bolt’s attitude boils down to the message ” if they can’t organize themselves like the white colonizers, migrants and the IPA have it’s their own bloody culture’s fault and that needs changing.” Indigenous Australians don’t need special consideration they need a good and strong dose of whitewashing, re-education, policing and their cultural poverty erased. In many ways it’s what Bolt accuses China of doing to the Uyghurs is actually his solution here.
Unfortunately, while Bolt isn’t shy of pointing out that Indigenous Australians are “different” on every social metric. He blames them for it. He has difficulty explaining the systemic aspect racism built in over 220 years that helped create and then generationally maintain that state of difference. Lack of opportunity, Quick to criticise Andrew Bolt has never offered any explanation as to how to begin to bring about systemic change to his accepted and continued racism because refuses to admit it exists. Simply put he expects Indigenous Australians to change and be more like him White. Adam Goodes was always Bolt’s worst Blackman while Eddy Betts his best. Does that hold any longer since Eddy has stood up and pointed to the racism that Bolt denies exists?

A news site with ties to the fossil fuel industry claimed Scotland axed 14 million trees to make way for wind farms. Is that correct? – ABC News
According to the government agency Forestry and Land Scotland (FLS), 14 million trees were cut down to make way for wind farms in Scotland, but this had occurred over 20 years.
Meanwhile, over the same period (from 2000), 272 million trees were planted across the country.
That crucial fact is missing from an article published this week by the website Energy News Beat, which appears to have driven the recent surge in social media activity.
Notably, the omission comes despite the article drawing heavily on a two-year-old story published by Scottish news site The Herald, in which an FLS spokesman was quoted as saying: “That figure for felled trees should also be contrasted with that for the number of trees planted in Scotland over the years 2000 – 2019, a total of 272,000,000, and renewable energy developments fit well with this.”
He added: “The amount of woodland removed across Scotland’s national forests and land, managed by FLS, for wind farm development is not even 1 per cent of the total woodland area”, while the 14 million trees were a commercial crop that would ultimately have been felled for timber.A news site with ties to the fossil fuel industry claimed Scotland axed 14 million trees to make way for wind farms.
