After we saw the latest outcome of Trump’s politics, ending with storming the Capitol in Washington, I hope Australia is learning from this. I hope Australia will move united to stop our government wasting taxpayers’ money, no, sorry, actively destroying our climate and future by handing out taxpayers’ money to the coal and gas mining companies and brainwashing the nation.
We still haven’t moved decisively on the issue of oil-based plastics even though we know that they don’t break down, ever.
Jobs, jobs, jobs can be created in hemp production and industry to produce compostable plastic, wood etc. While our government hasn’t said a word about raising the welfare payment for job seekers, I am amazed that the upgrade of the Pacific Highway from Newcastle to Tweed cost only fifteen billion and created a lot of jobs for over 24 years. And Scotty from marketing announced $270 billion spending on the military in the next ten years. And we are letting this all happen, time to speak up and rise up!
