The new Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Christiana Figueres is well qualified
to help heal the wounds of Copenhagen. If the West can learn the lessons of those failed talks and move forward with modesty, flexibility and sensitivity, we may hope for progress.

People in my own city are hungry, people across the world are
starving, yet here I am buying local organic olive oil, ten times the
price of a
good oil from Crete. The first time I tasted an organic carrot, I realised that every other carrot I had ever eaten was a mere shadow.

Australia's ban on couples using IVF to choose the sex of their
children might soon be
lifted. Some of the supporters of sex selection
for non-medical reasons are fertility doctors for whom there is a considerable financial incentive.

In Australia's next federal election, I'll vote One, Zero, Zero — Greens 1, Labor 0, Coalition 0. This is the only way I can fulfil my voter duty, while recording protest at the failure of our major parties to offer real policies on the planet's climate crisis.

Throughout his 2007 election campaign Rudd pledged to address 'inflated grocery prices'. But Australians are spending less at the supermarket than ever before. Cheap food has come at a cost to
the livelihoods of Australian farmers and the environment.

We are seeing only the early technology of the e-book. In five years the e-book will look, feel, sound, smell and gesticulate in very different ways from its iPad and Kindle prototypes. As usual, libraries are quietly ahead of everyone else.
