Irrigated agriculture systems, like electric grids and city roads, trigger a government's duty of care to the human communities that they sustain. Particularly when they were built with the blood, sweat and tears that went into building our Murray-Darling Basin irrigation communities.

In seeking to fill a mother's empty womb, Nobel Prize winning biologist Robert Edwards developed a solution. In so doing he confirmed what all innovators know: that progress doesn't occur in a neat and orderly vacuum, and nor should it be halted for fear of what it might produce.

Sadly the Commission played the blame game. This happens after every major fire and originates in the need to find scapegoats. Neither Christine Nixon nor the others who copped the blame could have known they were dealing with a whole new era of firestorm.

I believed it was not right to manufacture human embryos for research,

Every year we mine about a billion tonnes of iron ore. If we keep this

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.

The Black Saturday Royal Commission seems to be ignoring scientific evidence that climate
change was a major causal factor. The possibility that Victoria's cool mountain ridges
and valleys are drying out and that such ferocious fires are the way of the future might be a truth
too much to bear.

The Howard years made me feel ashamed to be Australian, and I felt about his electoral defeat the way East Germans felt about the Berlin Wall coming down: as a kind of cleansing. Rudd disappoints for a different reason.
