Australia fires: Climate change, our greatest threat, is overlooked by defence expenditure

Australian Defence Force troops and members of Forest Fire Management Victoria clear felled trees on the Princes Highway just outside Genoa.

Moreover, there are basic questions such as why we are building inferior French-designed subs instead of leasing from the US; or why have we made ourselves more of a target for terrorists and the likes of Iran by having joined wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and now the US armada in the Straits of Hormuz; or why would we contemplate an additional “national guard” to handle disasters.

Battlelines drawn over Australia’s hydrogen ‘fork in the road’
ACT Energy Minister Shane Rattenbury argued before the meeting that Australia faced a “fork in the road” that could set the direction of hydrogen as either a forward-looking renewables industry or a mechanism to “prop up” coal.

Australia falls to all-time OECD low on jobs but $A rallies against Zambian kwacha

Australia’s jobless rate of 5.24 per cent now ranks 75th in the world and 19th in the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). That’s the club of 36 wealthy, developed mixed capitalist economies with which comparisons can and should be made.

That is the lowest Australia has ranked since records have been kept. In June 2012 and June 2013, Australia ranked eighth. Just 12 months ago, Australia ranked 17th.
