Belly,
Judging by your reply it must have hit a nerve in the truth department !

Thanks for that, Individual,

I'm born and bred an ABC child, my radio is on the ABC now, but that list makes me a bit uncomfortable.

As for climate change, I wish I could get a straight answer to two questions:

1. Has sea-level risen any more than one inch every ten years for the past few decades ?

In Australia, Chris Kenny asserts that, with changes in measurement, etc., the hottest-ever recorded temperature for a capital city (Adelaide, in February this year) was about the same as the previous maximum for Adelaide in 1939. Officially, using different techniques, this year's was half a degree warmer. So my other question is:

2. Is Australia warming faster than half a degree every eighty years ? i.e. one degree in 160 years ?

Surely temperatures in the northern hemisphere (with its much larger land masses, populations and industrial activity) must have risen much more than half a degree in eighty years ? Still, if I were a farmer in eastern Europe or central Asia or on the Canadian plains, I would be calculating how much further north one could grow crops with every degree rise. And therefore how much country would be opening up to cultivation and production.

Half-wits like me can ask questions: are there any bright sparks out there who can answer them ?

Cheers,

Joe

60 Minutes just said Australia's unemployment level is at a record low & wage demands would send many jobs overseas. An ABC News reporter said earlier that the Public Service would definitely put on more people If Labor forms Govt.
I have a huge problem with that because many very low paid workers are deemed fully employed for working a few hours a week. That's just crap that the LNP Govt has ignored. People deserve better.
We don't need a larger public service & most public salaries need to be reduced rather than more on more pay.
So, which of the two is the lesser evil ?

Here's a hint, individual:

When governments reduce the size of the public service, they usually end up hiring consultants to do the work, at much greater cost.
