Government fails to support dying at home in Northern Rivers

Approaching the subject of dying is always tricky, often awkward, and never easy. But when you are faced with caring for someone at the end of their life, it helps if you can find support from people who have already navigated the path.

The UN report, from the recent climate meeting in Madrid, clearly states, ‘long time participants in the talks were outraged at the unwillingness of major polluters, including Australia, to show more ambition with plans to tackle the climate crisis’.

In his recent statement, 6 January 2020, our Minister for Emergency Management, David Littleproud said he wants other countries ‘to follow our example and to come with us’ in relation to the climate emergency.

In the words of another nut job… ‘please explain?’

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. Rod , dont you mean long time donations?
    The UN were only outraged that we and other
    Were not willing to donate more . !
    Rod the UN are fiscally enept “penniless”
    And this is a fact not fiction ..
    The UN are no more than a “traveling cocktail party snouts in the trough . How would anyone put trust
    In this organization when they clearly cannot
    Even budget the books .. the UN and the IPCC
    Are very selective in who they put forward
    As scientists, hand picked absolute alarmist.
    The science is not settled, 10s of thousands
    Of reputable scientists all over the world presented
    The UN and the IPCC , with factual proof , their was no
    World climate emergency . However were shown
    The door , shutdown. Not prepared to even listen.
    Socialism at its finest !! Always two sides to every
    Debate Rod ..

  2. Between 1940 and 1975 measured world temperature fell while Co2 rose due to industrialisation, such was the fall in temperature the media then, warned of an impending ice age, this clearly shows there is no correlation between CO2 and climate.

  3. Classic denial, spin, obfuscation, nonsense, garbage and lies!
    None of it true. Are you two just paid bots to keep posting tiresome inaccurate untrue denial rubbish in regional papers? It must be the case, if not, you’re at risk of having less knowledge and credibility than even Craig Kelly!

  4. Anton, I am old enough to remember the dire warnings if the “impending ice age”. Still waiting for it. And it is likely to happen once again, in maybe 50,000 years. Meanwhile the numbers of humans and animal stocks on this planet are ever increasing.
