Poppa Veet Mayo, Main Arm

Am I the only one who can smell a dead rat in this bubble called the Byron Shire?

Hear it happened that two people came and sprayed their virus from one end of the Shire to the other starting at The Farm, which is now deserted, and the Beach Hotel. And according to social media – all over the Shire, breathing their mythical virus hither and thither.

A time when the little people would have had a chance to claw back a little from the past 12 months with no gigs etc.

This looks like another crock of shit being pushed on the people of this country. Give us the science. How did these two people get caught and detected with COVID-19. Let’s all look at the science. How many people smell a rat?

Is hydrogen part of a sustainable energy future?

There’s a lot to like about hydrogen. For starters, it’s abundant. Hydrogen can store excess renewable power. When liquified, it’s more energy intense than fossil alternatives. In a fuel cell, it can generate electricity. When it’s burned, the only by-product is water.
