What we see depends on what we look at

To bring accountability to the democratic process I inform public debate by exposing issues avoided by main-stream media.


I believe the best weapon in the fight against corruption... Is the truth. Subsequently, every article I produce is backed up with verifiable evidence.



Knowing how the world works may shock you but, with knowledge comes the power to drive change.


Down the rabbit hole


Don’t take things on face value. If you do some research and dig a little deeper, the story is much more compelling. The driving force of all life on planet Earth is energy. The same applies to the prosperity and success of every nation. There are between 35 and 50 years supply of oil and gas left on the planet and the battle to control that energy is escalating. The fossil fuel industry and associated arms industry corrupt our politicians so they can continue their plunder. To stop the conflicts we need to remove the demand for fossil fuel and we only have one weapon... That weapon is "Climate Action" and we write the political blueprint for that at the ballot box.


Fossil fuel driving the Israel-Palestine conflict and Genocide!

As the U.S. proxy, Israel’s expansion into, and appropriation of, Palestinian lands is driven for control of the Levant Basin natural gas and oil deposits in the east Mediterranean Sea including Gaza. The current wars, uprisings, and other conflicts in the Middle East are connected by a single thread, which is also a threat: These conflicts are part of an increasingly frenzied competition to find, extract, and market fossil fuels whose future consumption is guaranteed to lead to a set of cataclysmic environmental crisesThe fossil fuel industry and associated arms industry have crushed humanity...

The Big Picture - Saving Our Future

Desired GPD growth of 2% or 3% annually translates to a doubling of our energy requirements by 2050 right when our oil reserves are expected to dry up. Population growth drives economic growth and is projected to increase by another 1 billion within the next 11 years, placing further strain on our rapidly depleting natural resources, environment and climate.... Read more

Unraveling the Global Conflict Web

In a world grappling with conflicts and the devastating consequences, it becomes imperative to examine the underlying factors. One recurring theme emerges prominently and that is the control of oil and natural gas resources.... Read more


Beam me up Scotty - There is no intelligent life on this planet

Unlike Star Trek, what's happening on the home planet right now is not fiction. This is harsh reality and we need to open our eyes and have a good look because, we can’t transport into a starship and warp-drive to a distant world. In the rallying cry of Extinction Rebellion - There is no planet ‘B’.... Read more

Game of Thrones - Game on

After the election of pro climate action US President Joe Biden, Australia's climate policy still remains a mix of delusion and denial. Since our politicians hate reality I suppose we should look at fantasy to try to hold their attention.... Read more

Signs of the Apocalypse - The Gods are Angry

It has always been part of the human condition to look at nature for signs, like extreme and prolonged weather events, and to some extent for humans to be superstitious or religious. In another time and place, signs of the apocalypse would suggest that the Gods are angry... Read more


Why don't we Listen

Collectively, what is wrong with us as a species - As pointed out in "It's in the DNA", greed is one driving force that can destroy us but, so can ignorance and our apparent lack of reasoning. To be in with a fighting chance, at survival, we need to understand where we come from. Reasonable-seeming people are often totally irrational.... Read more


It's in the DNA

The continued existence of nuclear weapons is an ongoing existential threat to the human race, one that may still get us in the end. If nuclear weapons were easy to obtain we would have gone extinct decades ago. There are enough omnicidal maniacs out there that one, sooner or later, would press the red button.... Read more

Using Australia as a Pawn - The Government Sold us Out

Morrison strikes at China after phone call from Trump - Out of all the countries in the West, Australia is the most dependent on China. According to the latest available figures, Australia exports 1/3 of its goods and services to China and that is now threatened to justify $270 billion in military expenditure...  Read more


Wake up call

Thanks entirely to you Scott, we are now in the bad books with the two most powerful nations on the planet. The only way to appease both China and America would be for Mr Morrison to step aside but, I doubt that his backers and commitment to them would allow him to do that so, the Australian people will continue to suffer under an oppressive and arrogant right-wing Morrison government....Read more

Enemy of the People

What has unfolded as a result of the disputed US presidential election driving the ensuing insurrection is not entirely surprising when you look at the big players in Republican US President Trumps 'shadow cabinet'. There are $$$ trillions of dollars at stake. With Mr Trump representing the all powerful fossil fuel industry and profit driven environmental degradation while Democrat Joe Biden embraces the scientific evidence for transitioning to renewable clean energy and affirmative action on climate change...Read more

Big Oil - Show Their Hand

The pandemic shut down global and domestic travel and the demand for oil plummeted. Over supply and oil storage became the big problem. Prices bottomed and, without storage, oil production would need to be shut down, some wells permanently. To continue burning oil, Trump and his backers pushed for America to re-open too early and literally fuel the pandemic... Read more

Big Oil v The Planet - Is the Fight of Our Lives!

Someone needs to say it... There are two pathways that present themselves for humanities future. One is the marriage between governments and the power brokers controlling fossil fuels and war, and the other is a move to sustainable energy. We can win this by removing the demand for fossil fuels... Oil wars! The headlines are shocking beyond belief.... Read more

Three Blind Mice & Fragile States

Former prime minister Julia Gillard said you simply have to follow the science and listen to the experts as she hits out at "strongman" leaders across the globe for their response to the corona-virus pandemic. Some of the nations that are led by those type of men — Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil, the USA's Donald Trump and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson — are among the countries doing the worst... Read more


The Real Threat to Democracy & Making Sense of the World

As the sun rose on Extinction Rebellion’s newspaper blockade Boris Johnson accused XR of committing the anti-democratic act of preventing the British public’s access to the free press. In a pantomime of irony, the Council of Europe just issued a ‘Level 2 media freedom alert’ on the UK government... Read more

Democracy Under Siege - Subverting the will of the people

With incumbent U.S. President Donald Trump attempting to discredit the electoral process, subvert the will of the people and take control of the American government, after losing to president-elect Joe Biden, this article becomes even more relevant. As right wing conservative once again play an extraordinarily dangerous game with Trump's Republicans plotting to overthrow the government and undermine democracy.... Read more


Murdoch strikes at democracy

The first German chancellor, Otto von Bismarck, said there were two sights the public should not see: The making of laws and the making of sausages. To this list of enduringly nauseating spectacles we should add one more: The political machinations of media moguls. It's called one sided censorship. So, it only goes half way towards removing freedom of speech but, it goes all the way to undermining democracy..... Read more

The China Crisis!

One aspect of fossil fuel is about money and control of raw energy. Every article I've read about Scott Morrison’s trade stoush with China is missing the point. The real reason for the escalating conflict comes back to the driver of every major conflict on the planet and that's about domination of energy in the form of oil and natural gas. The other aspect of fossil fuel is about the devastating impact of global warming...Read more

Letter to my Family

If there was an invading army coming to burn our country, wipe out our wildlife, drown our cities, decimate our homes and infrastructure, destroy our economy and kill us and our families, you would demand to be fully informed. You have been fully informed and there is no longer any excuse! Driven by the burning of fossil fuels, global warming is upon us and no less deadly than an invading army with the worst destruction yet to come... Read more

Ice Melt & Rising Oceans

The fact that we look different is telling us something. We are different. The way we view the world, the way we process information, the way we communicate, the way we look, the way we do things and what we choose to believe, is all different. As individuals, we have a right to believe what we want whether it’s ideology or some other thing that supports our own agenda. This does not give our democratically elected representatives the right to ignore irrefutable scientific evidence.... Read more


Our Best Future

April 12, 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin orbited Earth in the world's first manned space flight. "I saw how beautiful our planet is. People, let us preserve and increase this beauty, not destroy it!" Every astronaut since has had the same feeling. Scientists calculated a 'Point of no return' for dealing with climate change and time is running out. Read more


Pie in the sky

Green house gasses trap energy from the sun and drive global warming. A one degree increase in global temperature equates to a 7% increase in atmospheric water vapour. Increased temperature and water vapour drives extremes in weather. As the worlds largest coal exporter, in aggregate, Australia is the source of at least 4.6% of total global carbon emissions. The only way out is to stop burning fossil fuels but, we have a major fight on our hands..... Read more

Climate change - "We will adapt" - LNP

Record breaking hurricane slams Florida. The strongest cyclone on record wipes out Mozambique, the cost of unprecedented floods in Queensland runs into the billions. Add to that droughts, wild-fires, fish kill and the hottest years on record and we suspect something is amiss. Increased global temperature equates to energy in the atmosphere, equates to extremes in weather, ocean expansion, ice melt and rising sea-levels... Read more

An uncertain future - Political madness

From the New York Times, the most dire of predictions: WASHINGTON — A major scientific report issued by 13 federal agencies on Friday presents the starkest warnings to date of the consequences of climate change for the United States, predicting that if significant steps are not taken to rein in global warming, the damage will knock as much as 10 percent off the size of the American economy by century’s end....

Creating conflict

Flashback - What started out as a pathetic little grab for votes in the Wentworth By-election, by the Morrison LNP government, has now escalated to include threatening every Australian citizen and Australian trade. “Wentworth voters see embassy relocation as a targeted pitch to Jewish voters”. Which takes us back to religion being a political force.... Read more

Feeding the monster

An outstandingly bad illiberal democracy, also called a partial democracy, low intensity democracy, hybrid regime or guided democracy, is a governing system in which, although elections take place, citizens are cut off from knowledge about the activities of those who exercise real power because of a lack of accountability, transparency, freedom of speech and civil rights. It is not an “open society”.... Read more

Who stole justice.jpg

Who stole justice

I’m as deaf as a post but I hear the call “We want justice”. Here’s another little problem that haunts our precious society. Our adversarial legal system favours those with the most money. Like the LNP, it’s been manipulated and corrupted to favour corporates and the top end of town. The Law Society would have us believe that “justice system” and “legal system” are the same thing - They are not.... Read more

Testing the System

In pre-hearing, the conciliator advise that very few cases are ever won by the worker seeking justice in the FWC. My question to that was why? The corporate will win and they will go after you for costs and drive you into bankruptcy. My question to that was how? From this experience it comes down to unscrupulous defence lawyers and a manipulative magistrate favouring corporates. In other words protecting the guilty on behalf of the federal government - All proven with evidence on the court record... Read more


What makes an Activist

Something happens in our lives and causes us to question what we know. We open our eyes and seek the truth. The more we uncover, the hungrier we are to understand how the world works. We discover a world driven by greed, corruption and deception. We read a lot and there is a capacity to see the big picture, put the greater good ahead of ourselves and be prepared to stand and fight for a better and fairer world.... Read more

ACO2 - CCS - Web.jpg

Atmospheric CO2 Management

It is acknowledged that increased atmospheric CO2, as a result of burning fossil fuel, equates to increased global warming, extreme weather events, ice melt and sea-level rise. The objective then, would be to reduce our carbon emissions and, in support, extract CO2 from the atmosphere with an ongoing program of carbon capture & storage (CCS)... Read more
