REVIEW: Melissa McCarthy Plays Lesbian Author Lee Israel In Can You Ever Forgive Me? "IndyWatch Feed Seq"

Generally speaking, biopics tend to centre around an exceptional person (in one form or another) overcoming an adversity of sorts. And whilst Marielle Hellers Can You Ever Forgive Me? adheres to the formula, her subject author Lee Israel is far from exceptional and her challenge to overcome is to not get caught for ...

How to have a Guilt Free Christmas "IndyWatch Feed Seq"

Christmas is traditionally a time of excess, in every way. While the added strain on your pants after eating too many Christmas goodies can be easily relieved by transitioning back to a healthy lifestyle, the extra pressure the festive season places on the environment is a slippery downhill slope that is much harder for Mother []

Queensland's Rainforest is Burning "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Rainforest destroyed along road to Eungella
The unprecedented burning of extensive tracts of rainforest around Eungella in the central Queensland hinterland is a stark warning of climate change-related environmental challenges that lie ahead. Pristine rainforest has been reduced to ash across much of the area, though the full extent of the damage is not yet known.

Unlike eucalypt forest, rainforest is extremely susceptible to fire and the habitat will struggle to regenerate. This is the first time in Australia that such a large area of rainforest has been impacted severely by wildfire. Alarm bells should be ringing loudly.

A spate of wildfires anywhere near this scale in late-spring and the beginning of summer has never before been witnessed in subtropical Queensland. These before and after shots from the road up through Eungella National Park graphically demonstrate what's going on. It was inconceivable that pristine rainforest in such places could succumb to fire. If Eungella can burn, no rainforest is safe.



It's not just Eungella. An estimated 600,000 hectares have burned as more than 100 fires have raged across central and south-east Queensland over the past week. Towns have been evacuated. An unrelenting heatwave has seen temperature highs in many centres breaking records, day after day. At the moment, a fire is raging through the Cooloola section of Great Sandy National Park, threatening the heathland habitat of the Eastern Ground Parrot and other rare wildlife.

Weird responses of righteous fury, against students who protested about about climate change "IndyWatch Feed Seq"

The weirdest right-wing takes on the student climate protest , Australias free speech warriors took a righteous stand against children fighting for their future. Crikey, DEC 03, 2018   After years of apocalyptic headlines and government intransigence on climate change, the sight of thousands of high school students packing Sydneys Martin Place last Friday provided a jolt of much-needed hope for the future. Armed with loudspeakers, and some incredibly creative posters, the strike which also took place in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Coffs Harbour, Bendigo and other city centres  represented part of a global surge of student-led climate change protests.

It also caused a surge of righteous fury among conservative politicians and commentators; a feeling that was not shared by most Australians who are more worried about climate change than ever, and increasingly are in favour of more renewable energy. Heres a selection of the responses from those who chose to take a stand against the children advocating for their future: (subscribers only)

Big Coal And Friends On Track To Shut Down Your Climate Activism "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

A major case opening today in a Queensland court could have profound implications for climate activists around the country. Julie Macken explains.

The term, climate crisis is now the most commonly used descriptor when discussing global warming. Extreme weather events, firestorms, heat waves, flooding rain, loss of ice, snow and species are rightly seen within the frame of an emergent climate crisis. But if we are really witnessing a climate crisis one with the potential to destroy our way of life and end our lives how should we respond as a community?

This is a question being tested in Australias classrooms and Parliament right now and later today, in fact. The Queensland Supreme Court will be asked to decide whether, despite this crisis, it is reasonable for a large corporation to dictate how the community should be allowed to use social media to try and prevent this crisis.

The background to the case is this. Aurizon, the rail freight company formerly owned by the Government of Queensland, has been targeted by a number of individuals and communities because it plays a key role in the coal industry managing the 2,670 km Central Queensland coal network. It is also critical to Indian mining company Adanis plans to ship coal from the proposed Carmichael mine to Abbott Point, as Adani plans to build a 200km line that will connect to Aurizons existing Goonyella and Newlands rail network.

Without Aurizon there is no Adani mine.

One of those groups protesting the proposed Adani mine, and Aurizons involvement in the expansion of the coal industry, is a small community group called FLAC Front Line Action on Coal. Unlike the large environmental NGOs, FLAC is still committed to supporting people who take direct action to prevent the expansion of the coal industry and they have had some serious successes of late.

So much so that Aurizon has taken the extraordinary action of getting interim orders against FLAC. Those orders include prohibiting FLAC from inciting anyone by Facebook, website, and Twitter to enter rail corridors across Aurizons network or interfering with any of the companys coal trains.

Woman Pulls Porcupine Quills From Ravens Face "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

It is rare for any wild animal to let a human get close to it, let alone touch it. However, when a young raven was attacked by a porcupine, the bird seemed to understand the only way he would survive was if he let a human intervene. Gertie Cleary says she spotted the young raven []
