    Landline devotes half the program to Greenoid Doctors Wives causes, but tonight will doubtless be a salt-of-the-Earth treechange tardfest of rural yoghurt weavers.

    Anyone who believed the Garnaut review or Stern review needs to up their meds.

  24. egg_

    Where’s the beef?

    Treasury secretary Martin Parkinson says we must push ahead with pro-market economic reforms. Why are our politicians not capable of making the difficult decisions now? Why have we lost our nerve to tell people that our taxes need to rise, or services will have to be cut? Have we simply become too “comfortable and relaxed”, obsessed by monthly interest rate movements, negative gearing, our McMansions and so on? Are we skipping now and risking the future of generations to come?

    How long before Climate Change is mentioned??

  31. Bushkid

    As one who is not living in a MacMansion (thank goodness and common sense!), not obsessed with monthly interest rates movements, and certainly not feeling too “comfortable” or “relaxed” about either the present or future of my situation or the country, I think the esteemed Treasury Secretary can go and get stuffed.

  32. 1st question to FiFi about the farmers

    It’s about human welfare not animal welfare

    Wha? no livestock = no farm dickhead

    It’s the ABC ad Q&A – first up will be my estimate, then all the way through. Of course nasty humans will be to blame, especially the ones who work their arses off to feed the ungrateful inner-city cave-dwelling yoghurt weavers.

    Why have we lost our nerve to tell people that our taxes need to rise

    No worries Lil’ Marty.

    Just have an “unexplained wealth” law that is retroactive and can be applied BEFORE an alleged or suspected alleged crime is committed.

    Matt Sorenson
    Matt Sorenson is a 28-year-old chartered civil engineer and father of two who grew up in the rural town of Kyogle in Northern NSW. After moving away for 10 years to study and work, he has now returned to Kyogle to work as an engineer for the local council.

    Matt studied environmental engineering* at Griffith University and graduated in 2011 with first-class-honours and an engineering medal. In his final year, Matt and his now wife Emily took on an exchange opportunity and lived in Paris for six months while Matt studied innovative and environmental engineering.

    Before his current role at Kyogle Council, Matt worked in various engineering roles at Arup (a leading engineering consultancy), BHP Billiton and Westpac.

    In his spare time, if Matt isn’t playing rugby league for the Kyogle Turkeys he is enjoying life with his wife and two kids.

    Matt’s key areas of interest are energy, infrastructure and community engagement. Matt is keen to explore how regional and rural areas can be enhanced, to not only benefit and in some cases save those communities, but also help solve some of Australia’s biggest problems, like unemployment, immigration and mental health.

    To be fair he probably did agriculture as an elective subject during his high school years. Probably did some hydroponics experiments outside school hours as well if he is from Kyogle.

    No shortage of tools in the tool shed!!

    Carpe, can you please post a link to where I can watch this garbage?

    Cannabis hothouse?

    Matt studied environmental engineering

    Isn’t that how to build garbage dumps?

    Nothing to do with farming, but I reckon it is interesting stuff.

    Some people think watching trains is interesting, so leave me alone.

    Farmers have been trying to improve the soil since the plough was invented.

  66. RobK

    So many people telling farmers how to do it.

  67. Jenny goes the full alp, and is pig ignorant about running a business.

    Ohhh…tools and labour…Centre Link…send out the unemployed to farms.

  69. Why have we lost our nerve to tell people that our taxes need to rise

    And yet these same people gnash their teeth about a GST on tampons.

  70. RobK

    Weather destabilization has been around since the plough as well.

  71. A gentlewoman “farmer” goes the full climate retard.

  79. Beertruk

    I posted this at Tim Blair:
    Sea levels have risen since the last ice age was it it’s peak about 20,000 years ago and ended about 11,500 years ago. The coastlines of Papua New Guinea and Australia have retreated from each other by about 150km (93 miles) and the coastlines of Tasmania and mainland Australia have retreated from each other by about 240km (150 miles), but apparently the last 12.7mm (1/2 inch) is your fault, according to “experts” like Flannery.

    IIRC we’re 7 metres from peak sea level of the last interglacial – what’s the hysteresis?

    Ohhhh…Toowoomba got a mention…highlight of the night 🙂

  97. RobK

    Low return risky business needs high equity to be safe from droughts.

  98. young buck bemoans the cost of buying a farm as opposed to subsidies for students apprentices and first home buyers.

    He has a point and articulates it well.

  99. Bushkid

    Nailed it, Carpe.

  100. Jenny speaks again, i’m surprised she hasn’t mentioned her hobby horse – the querty folk.

    Brother in Law’s farm has been valued at 15mil. Cannot get a buyer at 8mil. He has had enough after 50 years and just wants to get out.

    That’s what the “sell the place, and get out of the industry” brigade just don’t understand, do they? If there are no serious buyers, what options do you have?

  116. Beertruk

    That’s what the “sell the place, and get out of the industry” brigade just don’t understand, do they? If there are no serious buyers, what options do you have?

    None. It is driving him insane. He put in 600 acres of oats. rained a little bit and and it came up, no more rain and that is the end of it. Except for 100 acres under the centre pivot. Do you keep pumping the river out and see the money you put in disappear or cut your losses? 500 acres worth of fuel, spraying and fertilizer lost. Farm injuries have taken its toll on him as well.

  117. mareeS

    Beertruk, Newie is not a rust belt. We are going gangbusters, but happy to keep it quiet.
