99-Year Township Leases

Yolngu Nations Assembly (YNA) urges the Commonwealth Government and indigenous communities to consult carefully before considering entering into 99-year township leases.

How can the environment minister of Peru preside over the next UN Climate Summit while actively promoting the rampant deforestation of his own country? Help us call him out on his hypocrisy!

Gasp! Antarctica Is Melting!

In this program we bypass the mainstream media machine to hear from the NASA scientists who say the melt of one Antarctic glacier set is now "unstoppable". We don't often get such certainty from science, or large government agencies.

Tasmania's World Heritage Listed forests

There's a concerning environmental issue we face here in Australia at the moment.

In June later this year, the World Heritage Committee will consider the Australian Government’s request to de-list 74,000ha of Tasmania’s newly added World Heritage forests.
