  1. US democracy must be a little more robust than here:

    “Serious investigations have been tasked by a congressional committee.. ”

    So what about the serious investigation into Native Title, the institutionalised process of mine approval forgery, fake signatories and targeted incentives? How many politicians briefed with such a role will be found out when history reveals the truth of resource theft and corruption behind the Roxby Mine and its expansion?

    Chevron is in the final throws of selling our supposed ‘Climate Change’ solution to India via bunker oil fueled tankers, the natural gas network and supplies can easily transform in the space of two years ALL our coal fueled power stations to natural gas. The ‘ETS’ is part of the Greenhouse Mafia lobby protection of coal and petroleum and all members of the parliament who entertain its folly are party to the public deception and mis-management of energy in this country.

    Unlike the Howard 2006 LNG contract sale of el cheapo gas to China, the latest windfall for Chevron , Exxon Mobil and Shell, thanks to the dumbed down and muffled ABC, proceeded without a whimper – the Gorgon Gas Deal:
