Is Camden the most embarrassing suburb in Australia?  How can we get rid of them?  Of regardless of whether they’re right or not, discriminating against Muslims but not Catholics, is racism (or at least religious prejudice if you want to get into that stupid debate about what a race is).

 

David Karoly is my hero.  He even inspires me to study meteorology, although I’m not sure that will actually happen.  It’s interesting how nobody likes Garnaut’s report too.  Industry says it will kill business and people concerned about our future say it doesn’t do enough.  You can find the supplementary draft report here.

In related news, The Wilderness Society put out an embarressing press release in response to this report.  While I agree with the sentiment, it was important to note that this was a report specifically on targets and trajecories and it was relevant to mention forests.  It’s also important to note that 2 days before the report was mentioned, Garnaut directly called on more native forests and wilderness in Australia to be protected.  

 

Some religious stuff 😛

Here is a good analogy for the “intelligent” design argument.

A brewary in Denmark is making a “Godless” beer and donating money to an Atheist organisation for each beer sold.

 

I was going to finish off with a hilarious Michael Palin for US president video, but it’s already been taken off youtube :(.
