Had enough of climate change yet? "IndyWatch Feed Capricornia"

Be Careful What you Wish For

In todays crazy world, western politicians are wasting billions of tax-payer dollars force-feeding costly unreliable green energy in the bizarre belief that this will somehow change Earths climate.

Even more incredible, they fear global warmth and seem hell-bent on creating global cooling. They should study climate history. It is snow and ice, cold dry air and carbon dioxide starvation we need to fear, not a warm, moist, fertile, bountiful atmosphere.

Climate change is natural and unstoppable.

Just 20,000 years ago, Earth was in one of its recurring glacial phases. A thick massive ice sheet smothered Canada, Alaska, Iceland, Gr...

Audio: Lessons from indigenous peoples about coping with climate change, plus the call of the night parrot "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Happy new year to all our listeners out there! On our first episode of 2018, we speak with the author of a book about the resilience of indigenous peoples in the face of climate change, and well hear some recordings of the elusive night parrot in Australia! Our first guest today is Gleb Raygorodetsky, the author of The Archipelago of Hope: Wisdom and Resilience from the Edge of Climate Change, a book published this past November by Pegasus Books. Raygorodetsky is a conservation biologist who has traveled around the world to live and work with indigenous peoples. In The Archipelago of Hope, he details his experiences with a number of Indigenous cultures and the ways their lives on their traditional territories are being reshaped by the impacts of global warming. Raygorodetsky appears on the podcast to tell us about the book and what he thinks the rest of us can learn about climate change from the indigenous peoples of the world. Our second guest is Nick Leseberg, a PhD student at the University of Queensland in Australia whose work focuses solely on the night parrot, a species endemic to Australia that was first discovered by Europeans in the mid-1800s. Though a wild population of the bird was found in the remote outback of Australia in 2013 nearly 150 years after the species was first discovered it still proved difficult for researchers to study because of its elusive nature. That is, until scientists realized that the night parrot comes

Researchers closer to understanding how anaesthetics really work "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Every day around the world tens of thousands of people needing surgery are given general anaesthetics - yet no one fully understands how they work. Now the picture has become a little clearer thanks to Australian research published in the journal Cell Reports. A team of scientists led by University of Queensland researcher Bruno von Swinderen has uncovered a key effect of the propofol - one of the most commonly used anaesthetic drugs - and confirmed that it does far more than simply put patients to sleep. Von Swinderen's team found that propofol profoundly disrupted a process known as synaptic release, the mechanism by which neurons communicate with each other. "We know from previous research that general anaesthetics including propofol act on sleep systems in the brain, much like a sleeping pill," he says.

Coal protesters block rail line near Bowen "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Two protesters from Front Line Action on Coal are currently blocking Aurizons coal railway near Bowen, calling on the Queensland Government to rule out funding for Aurizon.

They have prevented any coal trains getting to Adanis Abbot Point coal terminal by locking their arms inside a steel barrel filled with concrete on the train tracks since 7:15am today.

The Queensland Labor government is currently considering rail operator Aurizons bid for a NAIF loan, which would open the floodgates for new coalmines in the Galilee Basin.

Lilli Barto, a physics student, is currently locked onto the concrete barrel near Mt Buckley Rd, 20 minutes south-west of Bowen.

State Labor said during the election campaign that they would veto any NAIF loan that would enable Adanis dirty coal project, she said.

Funding Aurizon would be a back-door route to allow Adani to build the biggest coal mine in the southern hemisphere.

Natan Shlomo, a youth worker, is also attached to the barrel on the railway.

Coal is fuelling catastrophic climate change. We stand against the damage this would cause in the Galilee basin, he said.

If Labor continue to turn a blind eye to the devastating cost of coal mining they are complicit.

This comes as part of an ongoing campaign against the controversial Adani Carmichael mine, following on from last week when activists stopped a coal train heading for Adanis coal port. The group is committed to sustained action against the Adani project.

Bloke breaks up Roo-Fight in the Ozziest Way Possible "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Kangaroos.  Am I the only one who thinks they look a bit like the offspring you might expect if a t-rex f***ed a deer?  Seriously, swap a deers front legs for some t-rex arms, give it a satchel and an awesome tail, colour in its little white blotches and hey presto, Kangasaurus Rex!  Whatever though, thats besides the point.  These Ozzy icons love to fight and that leads us to todays video

In it, youll witness two kangaroos behaving like a couple of blokes in a pub whove both got eyes for the same sheila.  One minute theyre having a bloody good time, the next theyre debating whos gonna play wing-man and whos gonna go home with her.  The minute after that theyre punching on.

F***ing hit me, ya pussy. Credit: Viralhog

Sh**!  That escalated quickly.  These blokes are feisty.  In its own way, its funny that these bipedal deer with t-rex arms like to box.  Their little arms arent exactly made for haymakers and uppercuts but then, I guess thats why theyve got legs like cannons.

Apparently, this video was filmed somewhere on the Gold Coast in Queensland and whats special about it isnt the kangaroo stouche or the marsupial fracas, its the special way that the fight is broken up.  Suffice to say its more Ozzy than a dingo coating your baby in vegemite, throwing it next to the shrimp on the barby and downing it with a Castlemaine lager.

Grey Noddy, Streaked Shearwater, Gould's Petrel, White-tailed Tropicbird and sharks up close and personal were the highlights of an excellent Sunshine Coast pelagic on Sunday January 7, 2018.
We departed Mooloolaba Marina at 6.40am under sunny skies which were the order of the day with a maximum temperature of 30 C, a swell of half a metre, and a gentle easterly breeze thatstruggled to get beyond 5-8 knots. Normally such smooth seaswould not bode well but this was one of those days when we were blessed with the delightfully unexpected.

Bendigo Banks on Muslims "IndyWatch Feed Capricornia"

This article was first published two years ago and has been republished due to readers requests

It appears the Mosque will be built at this address after the High Court of Australia threw out an appeal by the Concerned Citizens  group last year: 9 Rowena St, East Bendigo VIC 3550

The Bendigo Bank fiasco all started when a group of Bendigo citizens heard about plans to build a huge new mosque in their city. Knowing that a mosque would bring untold trouble, as they had seen happen in other places where mosques were built, they decided to get together and work out ways to oppose the development application.

Oh piggy bendover bank!

They formed the Concerned Citizens of Bendigo group and opened a bank account to deposit donations they planned to raise from other concerned citizens.

But they soon found out that the Bendigo Bank is in bed with the Muslims. As opposition to the mosque grew the bank took it upon themselves to censor the protestors. The bank closed the Concerned Citizens account, stating that it did not meet the Banks Community Standards. This certainly raised a few eyebrows, because the Bendigo Bank market...

Port Douglas holiday query "IndyWatch Feed Capricornia"

Hi all, sorry to ask questions not strictly cairns related but youre my best hope :)

Wondering whether you think this itinerary is doable:

Im travelling with an elderly person who wants to see the rainforest and some islands. I was thinking to fly into cairns, hire a car and drive to the Daintree staying there overnight in a lodge. Drive to port Douglas on day 2 and spend 3 nights there, doing a day trip to a couple islands, and driving back to cairns and flying out on day 5.

Do you think 1 night in Daintree and 3 in port Douglas is better than a 2-2 split? I wondered about adding a night in cairns, but I think moving to three different hotels will be too much for them and would consider coming back just for a cairns only trip.

Id prefer to actually be driven from cairns to Daintree and then to port Douglas so I dont have to hire a car and drive myself, but Im guessing its important to have your own car access to explore nearby places?

Heard amazing things about the Sheraton grand mirage and a bit about the silky oaks lodge, any feedback or alternatives (amazing views, excellent service, access to things to do or see, restaurant on site really important).
