Green Energy, Green Car
Australia has the unique ability to reduce its carbon emissions,
the cost of a carbon-trading system, its dependence on imported
oil and cars and thereby cut its burgeoning foreign debt.
NCC Strategic Report 2008
For 200 years Australia has depended on first the British and then the US strategic umbrellas for military protection.
Over this period Australia welcomed foreign investment, first from Britain and later from the US and nations of the Western Alliance. This investment was vital to the development of Australia’s resources, infrastructure and industries.
Making the Internet Safe
Public concern is growing rapidly over the vast and growing array of seriously disturbing and illegal content on the internet.
There is no one “silver bullet” capable of filtering such content. However, as a matter of principle, what is illegal in other forms should also be illegal on the internet. Sites with illegal content should be shut down, or if they originate overseas, be blocked by filters.
Australia¬'s Water Management Crisis
- a moratorium on permanent water-trade
- build a weir at Wellington in SA to save 1,000,000 megalitres p.a.
- Governments to comprehensively consult with all irrigation groups in the Basin
- Governments to bring back high-level expertise for a Basin crisis management-team
- Investigate emergency water supply measures
FOOD SECURITY RESEARCH PROJECT
Australia doesn’t export 80 per cent of its agriculture as widely believed. It exports around 25 per cent by value at second stage production, according to research done over a decade ago by economist, Dr Mark McGovern. Yet agricultural policy is almost exclusively aimed at the export market. As farm profits continue their long-term decline and food imports continue to rise, Australia faces becoming a net importer of food in the not too distant future.
