Joe Natoli v Bob Abbot - It's done!

One more big reason why Bob had to win:

I agree with the comment on 'The Daily' noble_dakini from Mountain Creek:

Your comments indicated a perception that the Sunshine Coast community would feel marginalised and intimidated by the prospect of a strong Gay community here and I think THAT is where you missed the boat. The very characteristics of openness and acceptance that make the people in our region so wonderful were completely disregarded - you misread your audience and it backfired on you.
Let this be a lesson to all you politicians out there - insult our intelligence and reap the rewards!

Just came across this:
Abbot calls for high-speed public transport
I've been going on about this for a while. So I will keep a keen eye on it. Currently it's more pleasant for me to go to Melbourne for work than into Brisbane. That can't be right.

A passionate science teacher makes sense. I love his graphs and reasoning.
Incidentally pretty much summing up my position in the 'Where it all ends'

It's official: We are the biggest piggies!

Australia is the worst carbon emitter per capita. According to BBC news. Carma - Carbon Monitoring for Action - collates emission data in great detail world wide. 'Carma points out that while US power plants emit the most CO2, releasing 2.5bn tonnes into the atmosphere each year, Australian power stations are the least efficient on a per capita basis, with emissions of 10 tonnes, compared with the US's 8.2 tonnes.'
