We have coal companies and government wanting to go full steam ahead with coal ports up and down the Queensland coast, posing an obvious deadly risk to marine life and the Great Barrier Reef.
Along with this, a resumption of live cattle export, with more evidence of extreme cruelty to sheep. What were all those exposés and protests against animal cruelty about?
And then the ongoing Fukushima debacle – apparently now in clean-up mode, with much risk involved and as usual the ramifications of the incident ‘played down’ to the maximum by TEPCO and the Japanese government.
It rather feels like we are being taken for mugs.
