Teen missing from Coffs Harbour

NSW Police are appealing for public assistance to locate a teenager missing in the Coffs Harbour area.

While most of us live securely here in Australia, there is a poorly developed, corrupt country that is planning to reap havoc causing half a million deaths a year by disrupting international food production.

We in Australia are in a unique position to do something about this because we live in that country: Australia.

Australia is building coal exports amounting to about 10 per cent of global carbon emissions. The global annual death rate due to extreme weather is already in the millions and is expected to reach five million annually by 2030.

Next time you make a contribution to global development, remember that charity begins at home.
