Organic carrots and grocery store ethics

09 June 2010 | Alison Sampson
Organic carrotsPeople 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. 

Bushfire commission's climate denial

28 May 2010 | Tony Kevin
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.

Shame under Howard and Rudd

27 May 2010 | Tony Kevin
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.

Climate action after Rudd

04 May 2010 | Tony Kevin

Rudd is technically correct that the opposition parties stymied his CPRS bills, but the buck stops with his disappointing climate policy leadership. Upon the failure of Australian parliamentary politics, we need now to find the courage to support mass non-violent public action modelled on Vietnam War protest.

High-tech health in the bush

14 April 2010 | Ben O'Mara
New technology can improve health care for geographically remote and ethnically diverse Australians. But it won't make much difference unless these people know how to use the technology and are involved in its design and implementation.

Choosing the sex of your child

08 April 2010 | Kevin McGovern
The media has reported that 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.

Vote One Zero Zero against climate inaction

19 March 2010 | Tony Kevin

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.

Australian farmers sold short by cheap food

09 March 2010 | Sarah Kanowski
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.

Libraries lead the e-book revolution

01 March 2010 | Philip Harvey
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.

Vegetarian's war on duck terror

10 February 2010 | Sarah McKenzie
While most states have banned recreational duck shooting, in Victoria it not only continues, but in 2010 will increase. The recreational hunting industry comes down to nothing more than the desire of a small number of mainly men who get a thrill from the kill.
