In extracts published by News Corp newspapers on Saturday, Mr Abbott concedes his government failed to rise to the challenges of "greater fairness, more thoroughgoing justice and deeper empowerment".

In what will be seen by many as another plank in his pitch to one day reclaim the Liberal leadership, Mr Abbott says he intends to learn from his failings in his "future public life".

he knows everything there is to know about glowing in the dark...

You might have been emailed by some Americans who are panicked that their lovely nuclear power stations could be closed "prematurely" by "ideology"... Yesterday came the news that "Iron Man's Robert Downey, Jr. Speaks Out for Nuclear Power".

In a photograph taken on the premiere of Iron Man, the movie sequel of the sequel, flanked by a couple of cuties, one of them interviewing him, our hero talks about the chain reaction of uranium 235 decay with alpha, beta and gamma plutonium-ised emissions that powers his iron suit and that will solve the global warming problem for ever, and we'll all be happy ever after. No more rust.

The Federal Opposition has slammed comments by former Liberal frontbencher Sophie Mirabella, who says a Victorian hospital missed out on $10 million in federal funding because she was not re-elected to the seat of Indi at the last election.

Tonight as I watched the story of Rome, the first Empire — an episode on Tiberius Gracchus and his dealings with the senate in regard to land ownership and the way Rome was about to descend into a more violent society after his assassination — I was musing on my youth, when barely in first year of secondary school we would be forced to learn about the Greeks and the Romans history. 

intelligent design is a dumb idea, promoted by uncle rupert to retard the science of global warming...

uncle god

If intelligent design ever was a smidgin of godly tempering on the universe, it would soon have been like the inside of a frozen circus-tent on its space time co-ordinates, with energetic jumping dumb clowns stopped in mid-air.

a dumb comment...

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull today confirmed the attack.

a dumb design that makes no sense at all is used to bash richard dawkins...

a joke...

Not a week goes pass without Richard Dawkins being attacked by some of the pseudo-scientists of the dumb religious designer department. To them Dawkins is the devil incarnate. Mind you Dawkins always pops his head where he knows he will be hit by the religious mob for stirring anti-godot controversy.

bleaching

Scientists say they are fed up with Queensland’s biggest newspaper not covering the worst bleaching event to hit the Great Barrier Reef, so have taken out a full page ad to get the message out.


The ad comes as a survey revealed 93% of the Great Barrier Reef was affected by the bleaching. That finding motivated the Queensland government to call on the federal government to convene an urgent meeting of the nation’s environment ministers to talk about measures to address climate change in light of bleaching.

march

The Earth sizzled in March with the most unusually warm month in recorded history as average land surface temperatures easily exceeded levels deemed by scientists to constitute dangerous climate change.

The abnormal weather has continued into April as the most powerful tropical cyclone ever recorded in the Indian Ocean dumped rain at rates reaching 300 mm an hour, and Australian scientists declared the worst coral bleaching event ever on the Great Barrier Reef.
