On Friday 28 February, four Weatherford drilling rig workers at a QGC coal seam gas (CSG) well site near Tara in Queensland were exposed to as yet undisclosed levels of radiation. They handled a radioactive equipment component left at the site by workers from another oil and gas services company, Schlumberger. The radiation source was not shielded and labeled as required by regulation.(1)

Terra Nullius - and yet another venting in response to an incredibly dense individual

Environment, climate change and green groups have criticized the Federal Government for budget cuts to solar development and carbon reduction programs, as part of its reconstruction program for rebuilding Queensland after the devastating floods.
Deferring expenditure in the solar flagship program is of major concern for the development of industry scale solar power stations in Australia, necessary for converting our reliance on carbon intensive coal fired power to renewable technologies. A US study has shown the feasibility of converting global power to 100 per cent carbon emission neutral alternative energy technologies in 20 to 40 years, similar to the Australian study by Beyond Zero Emissions with the Zero Carbon Australia 2020 report, launched in July 2010.

Media statement by the Pro-Choice Action Collective
Abortion rights campaigners vow to intensify campaign
Pro-Choice Action Collective activist, Kathy Newnam said:
“Today’s acquittal of a young Cairns couple in the abortion case in Cairns is a victory for abortion rights. The fact is that the couple never had a case to answer – a woman has the right to control her own body.
"The verdict was met with prolonged applause and cheering from abortion rights supporters in the public gallery.
The decision by the Australian Press Council to dismiss my complaint (Adjudication No. 1469) http://www.presscouncil.org.au/pcsite/adj/1469.html about suppression of pertinent fact and misrepresentation is unfair and inaccurate.
In my letter to the Courier Mail on 23 Mar 2010 I complained the article, which mentioned me on 17 March (online) and in print on 18 March was inaccurate, unfair, misrepresents me and suppresses pertinent fact. The APC adjudicated my complaint on 8 July and it was published on 30 July 2010 after the Courier Mail stone walled for months.
The monthly "Clinic defence" by pro-choice activists at the East Melbourne Fertility Control Clinic in Wellington Parade has taken on a new urgency following recent events in Queensland and the threat of challenges from the Catholic Church to the decriminalisation of abortion in Victoria.
