MP Page to step down After 26 years as state Ballina MP, Don Page (Nationals) has announced he will not contest his seat at next year’s election. It comes after losing his major portfolio of local government in the NSW government cabinet reshuffle, announced last week by new premier Mike Baird (Liberal). His role of minister for the north coast will be taken over by deputy premier Andrew Stoner (Nationals). ‘It has been an honour to serve the people of the Ballina electorate for the past 26 years and I will continue to do that until March 2015,’ Mr Page said in a statement. He said that during his time in the ministry, ‘we have laid the foundations for a stronger and revitalised local government sector capable of delivering better outcomes for the people of NSW’. continued on page 3

Stoner deflects fire A tedious war of political rhetoric broke out last week between Walt Secord MP (Labor) and new north coast MP Andrew Stoner (Nationals) over who is worse. Mr Stoner replaced Don Page as north coast minister, and comes as fellow MP Andrew Fraser (Nationals) questioned his leader’s ability to be effective given his many portfolios. In reply, Mr Stoner acknowledged the increased responsibility, but was confident he would able to ‘continue to deliver for regional communities across the state, with a special focus on those along the north coast.’ But what area does the north coast cover? Mr Stoner’s office replied that it covers both the north coast and the mid-north coast, to which Mr Secord replied it was a ‘feeble attempt to hide the National Party’s neglect of the region by clumsily redrawing the definition of the north coast.’ Mr Stoner retorted with, ‘It’s hard to take Walt Secord seriously, especially on the issue of CSG and the north coast.’ Ugh.

Cr Hunter riles neighbours over latest plans Hans Lovejoy

Neighbours of Byron Shire councillor Alan Hunter on Pinegroves Road, Myocum, are again putting up a fight over his plans for a road transport terminal at his property. In response to what they say is inadequate council staff advice, a group of six residents has paid for independent planning consultation, which they say is at odds with staff recommendations. It’s the latest in a long list of attempts by the prominent Nationals Party member to gain development consent; prior to becoming a councillor, Cr Hunter was prosecuted by Council and fined $2,000 for illegal construction, which included allegations of illegal

earthworks and placing 18 shipping containers on the site. A 2012 Land & Environment Court battle resulted in the councillor having to remove the containers and restore unauthorised earthworks. And it was only four months ago that residents became angry over the latest DA. The quite cul-de-sac is home to around eight homesteads, and residents say the large trucks that pick up and drop off farm produce at the end of the narrow road already threaten wildlife and pose a danger to children.

ing, will fall under new draft Council policy. Specifically it will be assessed under both the current 1988 LEP (local environment plan) and the new draft 2014 LEP. It proposes a ‘change of use’ from a farm building to a ‘road transport terminal’. ‘Warehouse and distribution centres’ is part of late ‘key changes’ to Council’s draft 2014 LEP, and includes provision for vaguely worded new operations that would be permissible in rural areas. Council’s January 2014 newsletter reads, ‘Additional RU2 rural landscape zones have been expanded to include intensive livestock agriculture, garden centres, rural supplies, warehouse and distribution centres, storage premises, recreation facilities (indoors) and livestock processing industries.’

‘Key changes’ to draft LEP But Cr Hunter’s latest bid has a twist. His development application (DA), to be determined at this Thursday’s Council meet-

Resident Angus Way told The Echo the late LEP inclusions appear to be ‘written in at the last minute to suit Mr Hunter’s activities’. He’s one of six residents who recently chipped in together to engage a town planner to examine Cr Hunter’s operation independently. Mr Way said, ‘We felt that as individuals it’s easier for the Council to dismiss our concerns, but an expert in the field is harder to discredit. We were not happy with council staff ’s interpretation of the [LEP] changes, and felt that it was worth paying for a second opinion.’ Mr Way says his advice is that surrounding shires have not requested anything similar to those ‘key changes.’ continued on page 2

Byron raises $20k for ongoing #BentleyBlockade Luis Feliu

Over $20,000 dollars was raised at a Lock the Gate concert on Tuesday night to fund the organisation and infrastructure of the Bentley blockade near Lismore. Hundreds were turned away from the Byron Brewery gig, which featured Bluesfest sensation from the US, Nahko and Medicine for the People. The benefit gig was a collaboration between the Uplift Festival, Nick Hanlon and Amanda Shoebridge of Rock The Gate. ‘This incredible turnout is further evidence of just how widespread the support for the Bentley protectors is and how great the level of opposition is to unconvention-

al gas mining in the northern rivers region’, said Ms Shoebridge, ‘The cause is attracting international attention from a broad spectrum of people.’

Council standoff Meanwhile, the standoff between Richmond Valley Council (RVC) and Bentley residents and protectors blockading planned gas drilling is heating up. RVC general manager John Walker has refused an extension for the temporary campground and instead told media his council was considering legal action if people camped on the private property refused to vacate by last Saturday. Mr Walker claimed conditions had been ignored

and suggested that police, rather than council rangers, would be used to enforce any order to vacate. But that attitude towards protectors appears isolated – Richmond MP Justine Elliot visited the Bentley community blockade last week, as did NSW MLC and former Byron Shire mayor, Jan Barham. Other recent visitors to the campsite include Lismore mayor Jenny Dowell, Kyogle mayor Danielle Mulholland, Tweed mayor Barry Longland and Byron mayor Simon Richardson. The refusal by RVC has raised concerns among protesters that the council is running a political agenda in support of Metgasco or is being pressured by the state government. Richmond Valley Shire mayor Ernie Bennett, a National Party stalwart, appears to have taken a back seat to Mr Walker in representing the Richmond Valley community and so far no Nationals MPs apart from Kevin Hogan have spoken about the issue. The property in question is owned by former Lismore City councillor and local National Party identity, Peter Graham. Meanwhile, former RVC and Rous Water councillor Stuart George, son of Lismore MP and prominent National Party member Thomas George, has been accused of a conflict of interest after it was revealed he was employed by

Metgasco, a role he continues to this day as ‘community relations manager.’

Nats linked to CSG in region Gasfield Free Northern Rivers spokesman Ian Gaillard says Mr Walker’s actions have ‘raised serious concerns’ about the motivations of Richmond Valley Council in their treatment of the camp. ‘It is very concerning that while Gasfield Free Northern Rivers is trying to comply with all requests from Richmond Valley Council, we have been denied procedural fairness by them,’ Mr Gaillard said. ‘It is standard practice for

Council to offer applicants an opportunity to address any perceived failings in their development applications, but for some reason Council is denying the community camp at Bentley this right. ‘This raises the question whether Council is running a political agenda in support of Metgasco or is under undue influence from a state government intent on forcing this toxic industry on an unwilling population in the northern rivers. ‘Even more disturbingly, despite making every effort to follow due process in our dealings with Council, the occupants of the community camp have been subjected to

repeated spurious allegations and vilifying innuendo in public statements and media comments by Council representatives.’ MLC Jan Barham agrees. She said, ‘The approved camping site provides a safe and regulated way for the people who are willing to give up their holidays, to take time off work and spend their precious spare time to do so, safely. ‘It would be naïve to think that the refusal to approve an extension of the camping site would deter people from turning up.’

2 April 29, 2014 The Byron Shire Echo

But Council’s executive manager of environment & planning, Ray Darney, told The Echo that there were similarities with other councils. He said, ‘By comparison, the rural RU2 zone in Ballina LEP 2012 permits ‘rural supplies’ and ‘storage premises,’ but not ‘warehouse or distribution centres’, whereas the Lismore LEP 2012 permits ‘garden centres’, ‘intensive livestock agriculture,’ but not ‘storage premises,’ or ‘warehouse or distribution centres’. ‘The closest definition to Cr Hunters ‘road transport terminal’ – under the current 1988 LEP – is ‘freight transport facility’ in the new 2014 Draft Byron LEP. That use will not be permitted in the Rural RU2 zones when the new LEP takes effect. However, it would be possible for the applicant to apply in future for other permissible uses for the building in the RU2 zone.’

Cr Duncan Dey (Greens) however, told The Echo that since the residents’ planner emailed councillors over the matter, ‘the penny is starting to drop.’ He agreed councillors made changes to the draft LEP that will ‘fit the rezone and benefit Cr Hunter’s property’. He’s called for a meeting with planning staff to clarify the changes and to see whether the decision can be reversed. In relation to the current DA, Cr Dey said, ‘Alan has two zonings on his property – one for agricultural and one for rural residential. The issue here is around a cross-over allowed under clause 42 of the 1988 LEP of the activities permitted in each zone. This sharing is allowed within 100m of the distance between them and the zone boundaries.’ Staff have recommended approval of the development, despite 15 submissions and two petitions against the proposal. The report, provided by

external planning consultant Dwayne Roberts, also includes an engineer’s report to make the case there would be no significant traffic, environmental and privacy impacts.

Staff support In reply to residents’ traffic concerns, the report plays down impacts and referred to the RTA Guide To Traffic Generating Developments to claim that an 11 per cent increase, ‘has been assessed and deemed acceptable.’ That increase will see two to three deliveries a day, during daylight hours only, with interstate carriers making up 10 per cent of the total trucks. The Echo understands that no wildlife impact statements have been undertaken and that the matter has not been referred to Council’s local traffic committee. Additionally Mr Way told The Echo that a koala corridor exists in the area.

Q See latest updates at

Remarkably the consultant took umbrage to a claim there was ‘an intention to slip this proposal through with minimal public scrutiny.’ Mr Roberts reacted that the accusation made ‘is offensive and unsubstantiated.’ But Mr Roberts did handball the existing impasse onto previous planning decisions. ‘The design of the original subdivision is in part to blame for the impacts/conflict that has been created by this application…’ The Echo asked Cr Hunter if there were any mediation or concessions that he was prepared to make with his neighbours, to which Cr Hunter replied, ‘I will be happy to respond to your story when I see it.’ Cr Hunter’s neighbours unfortunately won’t have the opportunity to ask him to respond publicly as questions to councillors and staff have recently been removed from the meeting’s public access.

Mullumbimby is about to have a forum which invites the town to look at its future. Entitled The Big Picture Show, it is in part inspired by the Byron Shire Big Picture Show held in the mid 90s and which attracted around 2,000 to its first event. The strength of The Big Picture Show was its combination of education and community engagement. It educated local people about the real constraints facing Byron Shire and good practices and ideas from elsewhere. Creative Mullumbimby (www.socialhabitat.com.au) are behind the idea to invigorate and reinforce Mullumbimby as a creative place, and members include Malcolm Price, Toni Appleton, Julie Lipsett and Michael Flynn. They are seeking to stage a forum with other local organisations, along with the chamber of commerce, to look at the future of Mullumbimby.

Decade of change Creative Mullumbimby believe that much has changed in the past ten years, and yet there has been very little planning to understand and address the needs created by these changes. Some of these changes include the disappearance of Mallams; the arrival of Woolworths in Mullumbimby; the closing of the rail line; the development of Tallowood Ridge Estate; and issues around the Mullumbimby Hospital, the CBD; housing affordability and the ageing, to name a few. The Mullumbimby Big Picture Show has three aims, say organisers: to reflect on what we value about our town now; to consider and imagine what we want for the future; and to

begin to create partnerships with government and other stakeholders, particularly Byron Shire Council. The Big Picture Show will begin with a Community Expo where all local community organisations are invited to promote their activities. Alongside this will be the Community Projects Soapbox; this allows community groups to promote community project ideas. The expo will then transition into a two-part forum: the first part will focus on the past and present, the second on the future.

Learn from past One of the ways to move forward successfully is to learn from the past, and what better place to begin that the Brunswick Valley Historical Society. Susan Tsicalas is the treasurer for the the society and has been involved since she wrote the history for the Wilsons Creek Public School Centenary. Susan will be one keynote speaker at the event. ‘I will give a history of Mullumbimby, about how the town developed and the

changes that have been made.’ Susan says that the modern history of the area goes back to its settlement in the 1890s and each new influx of people has been incorporated in a rich melting pot of the wonderful community of the area. ‘Because of Australia’s relative youth, we are a country where you can actually follow the cultural development of a town. The culture grew here slowly and stayed the same until about the sixties’, she says. ‘When the hippie era came there was a real culture change, and it’s changing again now.’ Susan says that the railway coming through Mullum was one of the major historical events. ‘The railway made Mullumbimby in the 1890s. Now the rail line is gone and history changes again. There is much to learn from the past. ‘It’s time for the community to decide what way they want to go’, says Susan. ‘My thing is, this is where we have been, now we have to use that history to make a better future. ‘One thing that has come through strongly is that the

original people here were very community minded. Everybody got involved. We can learn from that.’ Q The Big Picture Show will be held Saturday May 31 at the Mullum Civic Hall. Q Brunswick Valley Historical

Society is open Fridays 10am –12pm and market day (third Saturday of the month) from 10am to 1pm. It’s located on the corner of Stuart and Myocum Streets, Mullumbimby.

New Oz film explores gender issues What began as an experiment in filmmaking is now the multi-award-winning film 52 Tuesdays. The new Australian film explores issues around youthful exploration and encroaching maturity, gender transition, the passing of time and authentic change. Screenworks in partnership with Star Court Theatre will be holding a premiere screening of 52 Tuesdays in Lismore on May 6. The film’s co-producer Bryan Mason will also be in attendance and will be taking part in a Q&A session following the film. 52 Tuesdays is about 16-year-old Billie’s reluctant path to independence when her mother reveals plans for gender transition and their

time together becomes limited to Tuesday afternoons. Filmed over the course of a year – once a week, every week, only on Tuesdays – 52 Tuesdays explores a modern world in a moving and provocative way. 52 Tuesdays has been receiving rave reviews from

critics and has also won multiple awards at some of the world’s most prestigious festivals including Best Director at Robert Redford’s Sundance Film Festival and a Crystal Bear in the Generations 14+ at the Berlin Film Festival. ‘We are delighted to be able to present this ground-

breaking film to a northern rivers audience,’ Screenworks’ new general manager Ken Crouch says. ‘More importantly, we are excited to be bringing Bryan Mason to the northern rivers to speak about the fascinating aspect of the film’s story and its unique form. It will be an event not to be missed.’ The event begins at 6.30pm on May 6 at Lismore’s Star Court Theatre. Tickets are limited for this one-off event and are available now from the cinema or on line at www. starcourttheatre.com.au. This premiere screening event is supported by Screen Audience Development funding from Screen NSW.

Physician warns of CSG health effects Marie Cameron

Among the monopoles, tripods, signage and lock-on devices scattered around Metgasco’s Rosella entrance at Bentley, the dawn crowd last Tuesday included Dr Geralyn McCarron. It was the Brisbane-based physician’s second visit to Bentley. She is the author of the 2013 report, Symptomatology of a Gas Field, an independent health survey in the Tara rural residential estates and environs. When she spoke of a life lived in the Tara CSG industrial zone her eyes clouded with concern. ‘Most people in the community are sick. It depends on how many wells are flaring, who’s drilling wells, which

way the wind is blowing, what the processing plant is releasing, the holding ponds and the road sprays. ‘There are many variables,’ Dr McCarron said.

Focus gone ‘The mental focus is one of the first things to be affected. ‘You’re just so tired you can’t think and there are many reasons. Extreme worry, everything you own is violated, you can’t sleep there is so much stuff going on. ‘People don’t have the energy to fight the government and gain support or recognition. The kids are sick. Co-existence is not a viable option. ‘You can’t live in a gas processing plant – it’s an extreme industrial zone. You don’t have babies living in a

processing plant,’ said Dr McCarron. ‘CSG-related health complaints include eye irritations, nosebleeds, headaches, coughs, respiratory problems, skin irritation, muscle pain, numbness, fatigue and sore joints and the list goes on.’

Can’t walk away ‘The QLD government did not make a baseline health study and now the onus is on the person to prove they’re affected by CSG. The only protection is not to allow it to happen. If you have any doubt take a trip to Tara. Communities have fallen by the wayside. When you cannot live and breathe you need to walk away but when you live there, you can’t,’ she said. With the gas zones of Tara

on her mind, Dr McCarron looked across the blockade. ‘The difference here,’ she says, ‘is that democracy is actually happening. People aren’t just voting, they are taking an interactive part in what is happening.’ Kyogle resident Doug Keogh observed the blockade from the side of the road. Doug has eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. His father had fought in World War II, his son was in the air force, and his daughter had seen action in Afghanistan in the Australian army. ‘Now we’ve got this,’ he said. ‘We have been taken over without a shot fired. I’ve seen good and I’ve seen bad and in my opinion this is bad. ‘They’re going to make good people into criminals.’

Street camping numbers down Public complaints regarding street camping over the Easter long weekend have been the lowest in five years, say Council staff. Byron Shire Council’s governance manager, Ralph James, said only three community complaints had been received but noted the number of fines issued over the holiday break had risen

‘about 18 per cent as compared to last year’. The number of fines for parking, camping and littering totalled 553 with a combined penalty amount of over $55,000. ‘An extra night patrol was in place this year and saw 163 fines issued during the night hours. ‘The street camping on

the beachfront was mainly occurring 1am to 5am and as a result they were issued a parking fine.’ Mr James says the message is slowly getting out, ‘that if you street camp you will get fined in Byron Shire.’  ‘It’s a much more comfortable option to stay at one of the great local camping grounds,’ Mr James said.

SGB to have say on drainage South Golden Beach residents concerned with street drainage are encouraged to attend a community information evening on Monday May 12 from 4pm to 7pm. Byron Shire Council recently engaged local Austral-

ian Wetlands Consulting to complete an options study into potential solutions to the street drainage issues; this includes the eastern and western side of Capricornia Canal. A number of conceptual sketches showing various

Tales from the political coalface

Volume 28 #46

April 29, 2014

Gateway without a gate The NSW coalition (Liberal/Nationals) suffered further embarrassment this week after its ‘Gateway Process,’ which assesses mining proposals on strategic agricultural land, saw two of the six panel members resign. According to The Australian (Newscorp), the NSW Farmers Association questioned the independence of the governmentappointed panel’s chairman Terry Short, a soil expert, who had to declare an interest in two of the three applications being assessed by the panel. In addition, Greens NSW MP Jeremy Buckingham put the boot in on fossil fuel lobbyists; he said Mr Short and his panel were forced to grant a ‘Conditional Gateway Certificate’ for a mine in the Bylong Valley west of Newcastle, despite assessing the mine as failing 12 out of 13 criteria. ‘It’s ludicrous that the Bylong mine failed 12 out of 13 criteria, and the Spur Hill mine that failed nine out of 11 criteria, are still granted a certificate and progress to the next stage of planning assessment.’ This again casts doubt over this government’s credibility and its continuous bleating of having the ‘toughest CSG regulations in the country.’ Mr Stoner’s office again offered up that rhetoric in reply to The Echo when asked what he will bring to the north coast as its minister. In return, The Echo suggested to Mr Stoner’s office perhaps the present safeguards weren’t working given the overwhelming protests by farmers at Bentley, Leard, The Pilliga and other mining sites. The Echo then asked if the minister would intervene and stop Metgasco’s plans at Bentley given the public outcry. Unsurprisingly there has been no reply – The Echo understands the Bentley land earmarked for fracking is owned by a high-profile Nationals Party member, as was the case in Glenugie.

ungo and I last discussed politics just after the federal election on Late Night Live. We both knew what Abbott would do – seek to close down free speech and climate change science information and further corporate interests at the expense of community. The bottom line was that a disenchanted public had voted in a climate change denying government at a time when climate change amelioration and adaptation was crucial to the survival of our species.  I felt lucky to have co-ordinated the citizen journalist coverage of the boil-over in Indi, southwest of Canberra, for my website No Fibs. It was a successful green shoot challenge to a corrupted, post-truth political establishment. An intelligent, transparent, community-building grassroots campaign enmeshed with social media saw Greens, Labor and National party voters unite to dump sitting Liberal Sophie Mirabella for a quality independent committed to a carbon price. So I geared my site and my focus to covering the green shoots of communities seeking change from the ground up, rather than the closed world of insider politics where the great bulk of big media failed to join the dots. It’s a good thing when all hope for established political ‘good faith’ dies, because then individuals must ask – what will I do? Activists need to let go hierarchy, be in the moment and trust in people to work to-

gether for the common good. For me, this is the exciting space to report in Australian politics right now, and to foster the reporting of citizen journalists.  I began by funding a pilot project on CSG citizen journalism while I took a break, then did on-the-ground news reporting for the first time

miners with governments in their back pockets. Like the voice for Indi, Lock the Gate supports and co-ordinates local communities defending their land, water and future their way. Back home in Queensland, I became heavily involved in the Twitter-based #SPCsunday campaign to lift sales of

Massive public support at the checkout saved SPC and Shepparton. by Margo Kingston since covering Pauline Hanson’s 1998 election campaign when I live-tweeted civil disobedience at the Leard Blockade and established #leardblockade as Twitter’s news feed. Here, determined locals and visitors tilt at windmills trying to stop Whitehaven felling the critically endangered Leard State Forest for the biggest new coal mine in NSW. If they can get away with that, they can get away with anything on climate change. As Naomi Klein wrote recently, we face an existential threat that requires collective political action at a time when the very concept of collective wellbeing is being kicked to death by corporatist ideology (yet enlivened by social media). She says the time has come for each of us to to find a place to stand, and for me that is reporting Liverpool Plains food bowl communities defending a shock-andawe invasion by fossil fuel

our loss-making last canned fruit processor after Abbott’s sinister decision to kill Shepparton and lie about why. Massive public support at the checkout saved SPC and Shepparton.  Newcastle writer Linda Drummond created that campaign. She wrote, ‘It’s easy to look at an issue and think, “Someone should do something about that”, but it seems our governments are becoming less inclined to be the ones to do something.’ ‘So where does that leave us? We can either complain. Or we can act.’ The Newcastle and its surrounds is at the forefront of questioning dirty coal and CSG owing to the defacement of the Hunter Valley without regard to human, land, water and environmental cost. The region is home to some of the state’s most intelligent and sophisticated climate change and land and water quality activists.  On my last trip to the

Leard forest, I reported on the occupation of the Whitehaven Coal mine site, and like other citizen journalists, was arrested along with more than 80 protectors, including the blockade’s spiritual leader Bill Ryan, a 92-year-old veteran of the Kokoda Track. I then drove to the Pilliga, where Santos CSG exploration in Pilliga State Forest has mobilised farmers, environmentalists and Aborigines. It was just after Wilderness Society campaigner Naomi Hogan uncovered the contamination of an aquifer by Santos and its cover-up. Northern rivers’ musical activists organised a much needed pop-up Pilliga Party to boost the stretched Pilliga Protector Network, and I spoke to one of its elders on the state of play. She said the top priority for people concerned with CSG must be the Bentley blockade. ‘It is the frontline,’ she said. ‘If they are beaten we are all beaten. If they hold out they empower us to fight on.’ I write this before driving to Bentley to visit the frontline. Will I see it before, during, or after police move in? However that looming confrontation plays out, the  Bentley blockade holds the hopes for many communities threatened by fossil fuel expansion around the state and across the nation.  I feel honoured to be visiting the Bentley blockade and to be published in the Byron Shire Echo for the first time, especially as a substitute for a journalist hero of mine. Go well, Mungo.

Offgassing on climate change dangers and CSG Q It’s no surprise that Metgasco shareholder John Vaughan thinks that gas is a good transitional fuel (Letters, April 22). Twenty years ago that seemed like a good idea, but the reality is that there is no evidence that using gas to generate electricity leads to any reduction in greenhouse gas emissions overall. Thanks to the lack of action by governments worldwide it is now too late for ‘transitional’ fossil fuels – we need to go straight to solar and wind power to save as much as we can of our environment and lifestyle. Matthew Lambourne Mullumbimby Q Mr Vaughan, The Echo has previously reported you

Making money Responding to my letter on the creation of money for infrastructure, D Lisle (Echo, April 15) accepts that our money supply is controlled by ‘un-elected technocrats’, that there is no community influence over it, that ‘independent’ banks are serving the interest of ‘the rapacious financial elite’ and that the financial sector enjoys ‘extraordinary rewards for shuffling bits of paper about’. He seemingly accepts that it must remain this way. I beg to differ – but it will only change when sufficient numbers of us get interested in the present system, how

sea-level rise. Connect the dots; perhaps it is not wise to invest in business that will damage the climate. May 3 is National Divestment Day. It is time to move our money away from polluting industries to support a sustainable future. As 350.org founder Bill McKibben states, ‘If it is wrong to wreck the planet, then it is also wrong to profit from that wreckage.’ More information is atgofossilfree.org/australia or contact byronbay@350.org.au. Dave Rawlins Mullumbimby Creek

have significant investments in Metgasco. Even Metgasco’s website states the aim of the Rosella well at Bentley is to test the Greater Mackellar structure for the development of a gasfield which utilises CSG and other unconventional gas wells, which require fracking. Unconventional gas is known to produce fugitive emissions (leaking methane). Methane is around 70 times more potent than carbon as a greenhouse gas. Scientists have shown gas wells which require fracking have the potential to damage the climate as much as burning dirty coal. The Echo has also reported you have taken Council to court so ratepayers must defend your Belongil property from beach erosion, which will be exacerbated by

Q In response to John Vaughan’s letter and his extraordinary misreading of Ottmar Edenhofer’s views on climate change: Professor

it determines the kind of society we get and what the alternatives are. The Bank of England Quarterly is a good starting point for it is very readable – refreshingly so. Take the statement, ‘Banks first decide how much to lend depending on the profitable lending opportunities available to them…’ (my italics). For the last few years, our money supply has grown by about A$90 billion a year and only about A$3 billion p/a was created by the government. Our economy is thus being moulded by some A$87 billion a year interest-bearing debt being directed by the

banks to ‘profitable lending opportunities’. Most of this goes into housing and land – speculative, negativelygeared and some ‘homesweet-homes’ – plus asset speculation. A small part goes to productive and community building activities. Escalating house prices and increasing inequality are the result. If money were created with the objective of improving our commonwealth, the story would be very different. But it isn’t. We have a treasurer threatening austerity; ‘Everybody has to help with the heavy lifting,’ he declares.

Letters already published in other papers will not be considered. Please include your full name, address and phone number for verification purposes.

Edenhofer, who was a Nobel peace prize winner in 2007 for his work as an advocate for strong and radical action on climate change, publicly denounces the fact that a powerful elite of corporations control the world’s intergenerational resources. He argues that clean air and water are the property of all human beings. Professor Edenhofer is internationally renowned for espousing the principle of an ‘ethical balancing of burdens’ and he vehemently critiques the very economic-rationalist type of paradigms such as those put forward by John Vaughan. Maybe you should have read the professor’s work a little more closely, John! As for the suggestion that

the only opponents of fracking and coal seam gas in the area are the Greens, John is right about one thing – the Greens are the only major political party standing alongside the gasfield-free movement demanding clean air, clean water and a clean energy future. However, the Greens can’t take credit for what is a massive, national and international environmental movement opposing fracking for coal seam gas. The gasfield-free movement doesn’t belong to any political party; it is a broad social movement made up of farmers, environmentalists and common people, across all spectrums of society, who recognise the unacceptable risks posed by fracking.

People have a right to be genuinely concerned that their water will be polluted, their land industrialised and their property devalued by risky gas mining. Like the 70-yearold Bentley dairy farmer, Jim Hewitt, I am so grateful to the many thousands of people in our region who are taking the time out of their lives to stand up to the near-sighted, irresponsible greediness of multinational corporations that are playing god with our most precious resources. Tamara Smith Bangalow

pus he didn’t find. Coincidentally in the previous week, Council was injecting glyphosate (Roundup) into coral trees along the length of the watercourse. Their dead leaves have been dropping into the creek. Perhaps insect larvae feeding on these leaves have been falling into the water, too. Platypus eat enormous amounts of insect larvae. Maybe there is a particular insect in larval stage at this time of the year. Or it may just be a coincidence. Monsanto says glyphosate is mammal and insect ‘safe’, but I can see online there is some debate about this. If anyone knows what might have caused a platypus kill, it would be in everyone’s interest to let Council know. There may not be a single

living platypus left in Upper Wilsons Creek. Michael Balson Upper Wilsons Creek

West Byron action The West Byron development proposal represents a great opportunity for Byron. Rather than waste our time and money with soliciting yet more great ideas destined for the scrapheap with the latest blue sky report, Council should shoulder its responsibilities and address the challenges presented by the West Byron development proposal. Firstly, the proposal cannot go ahead without proper infrastructure in place.

Build a comprehensive set of bike trails servicing the town centre. Encourage more public transit by bus and minivan. (While the railway could be great for tourism, waiting for it could be Waiting For Godot and truthfully, how many people are going to give up their cars especially without paid parking in town?) West Byron can wait while Council resolves these things. At the rate Council is going, plan on ten years. Then, proceed with the West Byron development as a cutting-edge national example of how to build an off-grid, sustainable ‘suburb’ complete with permaculture landscape designs, hempcrete buildings, solar panels, rainwater tanks – the works. Stop kicking the can down the road seeking more community input. The ideas are all around and residents are sick of the endless banter and no action. Make a commitment to showing the rest of the country how it is done. At the rate Council is going, Byron will be left behind. Edward Kent Suffolk Park

Don’s a legend A quick thankyou to Don Page MP. I was given a tour by you of your parliamentary office in Sydney as part of a high school captains tour of the NSW Parliament House in 2010. I had the opportunity to meet you at various school functions over the year. The dedicated representation you’ve provided to your local community over 26 years (longer than I’ve been alive) is inspirational. You have greatly assisted my university career, as I now have nearly completed my Bachelor of Economics at Queensland University. Thanks Don, you’re a legend!

Strange emissions A friend from Murwillumbah told me that ‘smart’ electricity meters are currently being rolled out there. This follows a letter from Origin Energy to customers in our area stating there will be ‘no more door knocking’. It appears to pave the way for installers to enter a person’s property without informed consent. There is

Michael McDonald

One of the more prolific sons of Mullumbimby, poet, artist and ‘lapsed scientist’ Edwin Wilson, has published Mullumbimby Dreaming under his imprint Woodbine Press. The book is a collection of his artwork and poems, along with drawings by Elizabeth McAlpine, who illustrated several of Wilson’s books before her death from breast cancer in 2006. While it stands in its own right as an impressive and interesting book, Mullumbimby Dreaming will also serve as the catalogue for Wilson’s exhibition at the Tweed Regional Gallery from Friday August 8 to October 12. That Wilson is prolific is attested to by the inside covers of Mullumbimby Dreaming, which display the cover images of the artist’s 25 books. And fortunately the contents of the book prove that Wilson is talented as well as prolific. It is an excellent summary of the development of his pomassive opposition in Victoria where nearly 100,000 households are refusing these devices. A smart meter on your home will emit health-affecting microwaves, snoop into your appliance usage, and quite possibly result in higher bills. While posing as green and energy efficient, they are part of a global agenda to dominate, profile and milk consumers. Wake up, Byron Shire! Go online today and search ‘refuse smart meters’. Helen Burns Byron Bay The wi-fi paranoids have again come down from the hills to fabricate a case for its danger. If anyone cares to do a search on wi-fi radiation and health they will find that at the levels of radiation posed by routers and PC-type devices no reputable bodies have found evidence of danger to health. Princeton University states, ‘It is the general consensus of the scientific community that the level of RF exposure due to wireless networks is so low compared to the many other RF sources in the modern environment that health concerns from wifi exposure are not an issue.’ The precautionary principle recommended is to continue monitoring, not to abandon the use of wi-fi. Of course, there is one major adverse health effect that is oc-

who he only made contact with at the age of 61. Wilson’s love of plants – he put his science degree to use for 20 years at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney – melds together playfully with history in poems such as Mullumbimby Creek (Grapes Growing Wild):

curring that could be avoided. This is the unnecessary anxiety caused by the spreading of unfounded fears of wifi by the wi-fi paranoids. But they are in luck. Only the other week I overheard a woman in a cafe say that she was wearing an amber bracelet which shielded her from wi-fi radiation. That sounds just as sensible as the wi-fi paranoia to me. But if you want a more scientific approach you could use a Faraday cage shield and wrap your house in tinfoil (insulation in the walls and roof) or wear a tinfoil hat to protect you head. Or they could rely on the inverse square law, stay in the hills, and leave the business of wi-fi radiation to those of us who actually live in the towns. John Purssey Mullumbimby

One shministi said, ‘I will not lend my own hand to the occupation and to acts that contradict my most basic values: human rights, democracy and the personal responsibility each and every human being bears towards fellow human beings.’ Criticism of the Israeli government and support for BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) against Israeli companies like Soda Stream triggers accusations of anti-semitism and Israel-hating but critical Jews are labelled ‘self-hating’. M Mizzi advises me to ‘divert (my) attention to Chinese mining companies’ but China is Israel’s third-largest trading partner, and bilateral trade between the two countries was worth over $10 billion in 2013. China is second only to the US in joint high-tech projects with Israel’s Chief Scientist Office, and has surpassed Europe as the second leading source of high-tech capital. There are also growing calls in Israel to restart the arms trade with China, although currently US pressure has prevented this from happening. No doubt these partners in persecution share an ethic of ruthless exploitation and it’s probably only a matter of time before we see Israeli weapons levelled at Tibetans.

Israel and China M Mizzi claims I hate Israel (Letters, April 22), which is curious given that I support, among others, the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions, B’Tselem (The Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories) and Yesh Gvul (supporting military refusniks). Byron Friends of Palestine salute the wonderful young Israelis who refuse military conscription and pay like Or Ben-David with repeated prison terms.

Rallying calls for Bentley blockade Q In 35 years of activism, I have never witnessed a protest more worthy of support than the Bentley Blockade. The NSW government, in enabling non-conventional gas mining using fracking technology, can be charged with gross negligence, if not intentional complicity in causing serious risk to public safety. The available evidence shows both overseas and in Queensland the dangers inherent in fracking technology. There can be no excuse for permitting its use by mining corporations. The dedication of the growing numbers of land, water and air protectors who are standing firm at Bentley is

old’, as the saying goes. My gut feeling was confirmed last night when ABC news aired an inspiring interview with Ian Gaillard at the camp, followed by a grim warning that Metgasco will be starting work on their unconventional gas well site this week. First, of course, hundreds of police will be sent in to clear the protectors’ camp on the adjoining farm (ie, on private land), an area generously provided by Mr Scarabellotti, a local farmer. Most of the local farmers are implacably opposed to gas wells. But Richmond Valley mayor Ernie Bennett said police would be required ‘for sure’ to move the campers on. Appar-

ently Mr Bennett is concerned that some of the campers have been washing in the creek and polluting it! This falls into the category of tragically funny, considering the inevitable pollution of fracking with carcinogens and other toxic chemicals which threatens Lismore’s water supply. To see what is at stake go to YouTube clip http://bit.ly/ gaswells for an aerial view of what has already happened in Queensland and the horrific future in store.

I do go for a vintage sound though with my choices of reverb and vocal style What are the songs of 60s artists that you actually do? There are so many great ones to choose from! We do about 15 songs from the 60s, by The Kinks, The Troggs, The Honeycombs, The Beatles and other acts. My favourites are Sandie Shaw’s Long Live Love, Lulu’s To Sir With Love and Gerry & The Pacemakers’ I Like It, the last two of which are on our album. How did Annie & Bern become a duo? We met through an ad I put in a music paper, looking for a band. We’d been writing and performing originals together in various bands, and when How did you become our last band came to acquainted with the an end, we decided we’d music of Sinatra and be a duo, freshly arrange Sandie Shaw and our originals for acoustic Shirley Bassey?

I heard Comes the Love, your my dad’s Bassey albums when I was a kid but didn’t appreciate her until I was debut album? Where did you record? what were the ideas you had for twenty-something. I did like dancing to my mum’s Beatles album though, and that album? How did you feel about the end result? We recorded the album when I was a teenager also really liked a 60s girl-singer compilation album from at Kent St Studios in Melbourne, and Bern mixed it at home. There wasn’t an her collection. intended theme. We just wanted to record our best songs. The song subjects are What is it about these particular 1960s acts or their style of music that mostly about love though, be it in the form of romance, solidarity, gratitude or you find so creatively evocative? Do you think Brit music of this era was longing, and it’s quite a positive album. I’m really pleased with the recording, our intrinsically different from what was happening here or in the US? For me, performances and the songs. I’m quite happy for it to be out there in the world. pop music of the early 60s has romance and charm, and also innocence and cheekiness. Many people who were in London in the 60s say it felt like something What should we expect for your Byron Show? At our show in Byron you can expect some snazzy vintage-style costumes, and we’ll be performing our originals really exciting and new was happening, so it also has an air of dynamic promise interspersed with covers: mostly 60s but also some Britpop 90s and a few oddities for me. I don’t know a lot about US or Australian music of the same time, but that we do in a vintage style. perhaps there’s a cosiness and warmth to British culture – comedy, accents, TV and music – that draws me in.

BEST BIRTHDAY EVER Birthdays have always been important to me. Not my birthday, but the birthdays of my loved ones. I always go to a ridiculous amount of effort for the kids. I want them to feel special. I want them to realise that after all year of my bitching and complaining and criticising that they are immensely loved. I am sure they appreciate it but, truth be told, I don’t think the hours spent making fluffy paper balls or bunting has ever really impacted on their enjoyment or made them feel any more loved than they would have felt without fluffy balls and bunting. I have never known anyone to go to therapy and say, ‘I never felt truly loved. My mother never made bunting.’ Birthdays don’t just happen for me. I plan them. For weeks. I come up with a party theme, I plan the presents. Ivy turned five last week and this year the big surprise was a beautiful new wooden playground I bought her online. I bought it after Xmas on special and have been hiding the boxes under the house for months. This was part of the ‘best birthday ever!’ plan. You see, I don’t feel I have achieved paydirt with the kids unless they mumble, ‘This is the best birthday ever’. (Sad isn’t it, when a 46-year-old woman still requires approval and validation from her kids? But I try not to be too introspective in case it requires my actually changing my behaviour.)

This ‘birthday surprise’ racket is the domain of women. We are the ones who buy giant trampolines and expect drunk husbands and their halfwit associates to assemble it. ‘It will only take an hour, tops,’ we say and go back to the kitchen, happy that we are not facing the assembly ourselves. ‘Can’t we just give it like this?’ says frustrated husband. Are you insane? Only a man would say that! ‘Happy Birthday – here is your trampoline.’ What child doesn’t love a flat pack! No, assembly is imperative. So it was my husband’s job to assemble the playground – nothing too difficult. A twostorey fort, a slide, two swings, a monkey bar and a trapeze. I was chuffed. Mummy had done it again: this was going to be another ‘best birthday ever’. Of course Mummy had mentioned very quickly in passing to Daddy that the instructions did say that assembly would take ‘two men, up to 9 hours’. My husband’s no fool, he knows he’s assemblyimpaired, so he organised a small team. I took Ivy out, and returned in the dark to ensure the concealment of the playground in our backyard, ready for the early-morning ‘birthday surprise reveal’. I couldn’t have been happier with myself. I felt like the world’s best mum ready to deliver the best of all the ‘best birthday ever’ presents! Then my husband breaks the news. ‘It’s not finished.’ It’s like I don’t hear him. Like he’s speaking a language I have never heard. Failure to complete does not compute. That can’t be possible! Not finished! It has to be finished! It’s her birthday in the morning and it’s her major present. This is Best Birthday Ever Mummy Suicide! In one instant my excitement about the upcoming birthday reveal of ‘what’s outside darling… da da’ turned into horror when I realised that what lay

behind the curtain was not a fantasy playground, but a pile of wood. ‘Happy Birthday darling – Mummy and Daddy got you some timber!’ My husband was calm and rational. I was furious, irrational, emotional. ‘It will be finished by tomorrow afternoon.’ What? Give a child their birthday present in the afternoon? Is he an idiot? The kid has been crossing off days on her calendar for three months – making her wait six more hours is torture. It’s certainly not ‘the best birthday ever’. What if the mummy police found out that I’d failed to supervise the construction of a child’s gift for the prescribed delivery date? You can’t put off a birthday in the same way you can’t put off a labour. I was heartbroken. It was ridiculous. Clearly I’d bought the playground for my own Good Mother gratification. My poor long-suffering husband got into a lot of trouble. I could not let it go. Actually, I could let it go. I would not let it go. I threw a mummy tantrum. And guess what. Her birthday happened. We had the playground ready for her in the afternoon and she was fine. Turns out my 5-year-old is more emotionally evolved than I. And guess what she said, as the sun was setting on the anniversary day of her arrival on this planet? She said, ‘This is the best birthday ever’. I was complete.

M SAGITTARIUS: The strongest muscle in the human body is apparently the tongue, with Sagittarians’ lingual organs among the zodiac’s Olympians. This week suggests giving them a well-earned rest and getting serious about what it is you really value – where best to invest your time, energy and expertise. N CAPRICORN: This week gets physical about creature comforts: meals on the table, money in the bank, fuel in the tank and cash in the wallet. Plus it restores stability and structure, reality checks and course corrections – but at a cruisy Venusian pace in a graceful Venusian way. O AQUARIUS: This week’s focus shifts from change to maintenance, to nurturing personal and social relationships. To letting go of having the last word, the best way to deal with others just as stubborn as yourself. All not as dreary as it sounds, because this transit’s actually abundantly lush. P P ISCES: As this week ushers in a slower tempo, shorter days and cooler weather pleasures, Venus is suggesting you cut back on commitments so you’re not too booked up and busy to enjoy the cosmic cornucopia of physical possibilities and natural attractions desperate to get your attention.

cinema review THE INVISIBLE WOMAN Envy and the slavish adoration of fabrications concocted on a media assembly line might encourage us in the twentyfirst century to believe that we created the cult of celebrity, but it has been around for many a year. Charles Dickens, if certainly not of the hollow variety now rampant, was himself a celebrity who was as mobbed by the plebs as he was lauded by lettered elites for his peerless writing and storytelling. As director of this languid, gently incisive film, Ralph Fiennes introduces us first to the teenage actress with whom Dickens became

so totally enamoured. It is some years after his death and, though now married with a child of her own, the beautiful Nellie (Felicity Jones) remains troubled by her relationship with the great novelist – he still casts a shadow over her life. We then flash back to their meeting, when she was a not-sosuccessful slapper who toured the provinces performing with her mother (Kristin Scott Thomas) and two sisters. Dickens (played by Fiennes), already a living legend, had all but separated from his wife Catherine and found

Nellie, who was twenty-seven years younger, irresistible. Fiennes is careful to remain nonjudgmental, preferring to eke out the mystery of love itself when two people fall under its spell. Social mores are noted – Nellie’s mother, wishing for a financially more secure future for her daughter, turns a blind eye to the affair, while Dickens himself rails against public whisperings but, when in France with Nellie, calls himself by another name. The inspiration behind Dickens’s mighty works is captured poignantly in a silent nocturnal scene in

which he sees firsthand the deprivations of a poorhouse, but the movie never labours the point. Fiennes is not unexpectedly outstanding, but Jones’s performance is breathtaking in its subtlety and depth (it reminded me of Abbie Cornish’s in Bright Star.) Emphatically showing that caressing and touching hands can be as erotic as your standard grunting bonk, Fiennes inexorably, invisibly weaves an affair of the heart into the rich tapestry of Great Expectations. Wonderful. ~ John Campbell

spotted Great Dane having a dump on the floor of a posh Manhattan apartment. This unattractive, unappealing and grindingly unfunny chick-flick

is not in the same league as Bridesmaids when it comes to coarse stupidity – in fact it is quite restrained on that front – but it is every bit as lame and conformist. And, need it be stressed, doggedly lowbrow. Cameron Diaz – she still has the legs, but the trout mouth’s forced smile and eyes coated with makeup are giving her a look that is closer to worn out than far out – is Carly, a power-suited NYC lawyer who has, unknowingly, been screwing a married man, Mark (Nilolaj CosterWalau – a sort of poor man’s Aaron Eckhart). Given that we all have an idea of where the movie is meant to be heading

with its theme of wronged women uniting to dish out payback, the story takes an age to get going. When Mark’s wife Kate (Leslie Mann) finally does find out that hubby has been doing the dirty on her, her reaction is so pathetically squeally that, try as I might, I could muster no sense of outrage on her behalf – the character and Mann’s presentation of it is irritating beyond all reason. The third woman to have succumbed to Mark’s charms is Amber (Kate Upton), a young lady with spectacular breasts, whose part it is to play the dumb blonde. I thought her more pleasing than the other two,

for she was at least natural. Nick Cassavetes’s direction is mechanical, with clumsy cutaways and a lazy over-reliance on collages that feature the girls drinking, bonding and laughing a lot under some innocuous pop song. Worst

flight – notwithstanding the harried look on Liam’s dial. Sure enough… he gets a text from a mystery passenger who threatens to kill somebody in twenty minutes if money is not deposited into an account that he has supplied. Early indicators suggest that we might be heading into Snakes on a Plane territory (I’d love to see that again, just for its glorious idiocy) as Liam is led to the end of his tether by a conspirator who is always one step ahead of him. His manic attempts to find the villain result in Liam’s being considered a terrorist by the air force and everybody else on the plane – except for Julianne and the beautiful stewardess (Michelle Dockery,

who appears weirdly out of place after her spellbinding presence at Downton Abbey). There are the usual number of suspects – the only one of whom you know it can’t be is the Muslim doctor, for that would be too obvious… unless the writers intend applying Maxwell Smart’s ‘old reverse psychology trick’. The plot is convoluted and the declamatory dialogue at times awful, but the tension is well constructed and Neeson, Moore and Dockery, aided by an excellent support cast – Corey Stoll notably so as an off-duty NYPD officer – are untroubled in holding the story together as it hurtles towards its fantastic climax. ~ John Campbell

of all, the ending is nasty in the extreme, featuring scenes of gratuitous and entirely uncalled for violence, adding ugliness to a film that is both dull and predictable. ~ John Campbell

NON STOP Craggy old Liam Neeson does it tough in the movies these days, doesn’t he? Invariably widowed or divorced, in this case as US Air Marshal Bill Marks, the poor bugger has also lost an eight-year-old daughter to leukemia and, still devastated, has developed a penchant for hard liquor. He is one of the army of plainclothes security guards that the US government has employed since 9/11 to keep the airways safe for travellers, though whether the rest of them get a seat in first class is doubtful at best. Sipping on a gin and tonic with a lovely stranger (Julianne Moore) sitting next to him, everything looks hunky dory on just another New York–London

Australian network operators ready to ditch poles and wires by Giles Parkinson, editor of Reneweconomy Network operators in at least two Australian states are likely to ditch parts of their extensive poles-and-wire networks in regional areas as they realise that the costs of delivering centralised generation to remote areas is no longer economically feasible. The decisions are likely to be a foretaste of a sweeping change across electricity markets in Australia, and overseas, as generation moves increasingly to a decentralised model – including rooftops, community and small local generation and storage – instead of the longstanding centralised, hub-and-spoke model. The falling cost of solar, with the anticipated falls in the cost of storage, is making this possible. Australia is expected to be at the forefront because of the huge geographic areas covered by its networks, its sky-high electricity prices, and its excellent solar resources. The question for many is how far this new model will extend into cities and other heavily populated areas. John Bradley, the head of the Energy Networks Association – the industry group that represents the distribution and transmission network operators across the country – says network operators in at least two states, Queensland and Western Australia, are likely to shrink their asset base to allow new competitors into the market. ‘Some businesses will welcome the opportunities for other commercial players to come in and take their business off them,’ he said at a conference last week. ‘Those businesses are looking basically to see their

asset base shrink, and I am expecting that they will.’ Indeed, the two biggest operators in regional Queensland and WA have already conceded that new technologies such as solar and storage – and the emergence of mini- and micro-grids – make the traditional form of delivery more or less redundant in some areas. Their services are already heavily subsidised by cash-strapped state governments, to the tune of $500 million in WA and more than $600 million in Queensland. Both governments have indicated this is unsustainable. Last year, Ergon Energy, which covers more than 90 per cent of the state, said it was likely that its customers would find it cheaper to go off grid – with renewables such as solar plus storage – than to remain connected to the network. Horizon Energy, which services regional areas in WA, in March tendered for operators to supply large battery storage and solar systems for some towns as it contemplated whether centralised generation had any future in regional areas. ‘Our traditional energy business may be very different and very small [in the future],’ Horizon managing director Frank Tudor said last month, adding that the cost of solar plus storage was already a fraction of the cost of delivery of centralised generation through the networks to some remote towns. Dramatic changes in the nature of electricity generation are forecast across the world. David Crane, the head of NRG, an

North Coast news daily: www.echonetdaily.net.au

energy giant in the US, said recently that building an electricity system in the 21st century based around millions of poles and wires is ‘shockingly stupid’. The Rocky Mountain Institute recently released a report suggesting that solar plus storage could be economically viable for households in New York and Los Angeles within a decade. Investment bank Morgan Stanley said in a report earlier last month that solar plus storage would soon create a ‘tipping point’ that causes customers to seek an off-grid approach. It makes sense that it should happen in Australia – it’s the advanced economy with the highest retail prices, the biggest cost of delivery (thanks to the huge geography), and the best solar resources. As Muriel Watt from the Australian Photovoltaic Association pointed out in a presentation last week, stringing up poles and wires in regional areas doesn’t make a lot of sense. In Ergon’s area – which accounts for more than 90 per cent of Queensland – the average customer density is just 4.3 per kilometre of wires. It’s a legacy of the ‘rural electrification’ dream of the 1950s and 1960s, but given today’s technology choices and the offerings of mini-grids and micro-grids, it is actually quite absurd. The question for many is how far this phenomenon – of replacing centralised generation with distributed energy – reaches into the cities. CSIRO last year suggested in its future grid report that nearly one-

half of generation could come from the users themselves – such as rooftop solar on households and businesses. But it also warned that one-third of customers could take themselves off the grid if the utilities did not respond adequately and merely tried to shift the cost elsewhere. This growth in self-generation, or the rise of the pro-sumer, is challenging network operators, generators and retailers like no other. A recent study published by Energy for the People and the Alternative Technology Association suggested the shift away from a centralised NEM to standalone community power solutions could be ‘quick and dramatic’, with most Australian regional towns and new housing estates expected to be able to function viably and economically off the electricity grid by as early as 2020. Exactly how that is managed will be the big test – for consumers and for the incumbent industry. Watt accused the industry of resisting change and doing everything it could do slow down or prevent the rollout of distributed generation. Bradley said that some form of centralised generation was essential, and the key was costreflective tariffs. Chris Dunstan, from the Institute for Sustainable Futures, said he was concerned that many customers would leave the grid, causing assets to become stranded and remaining customers paying more. For that reason, he said, there needed to be a much greater focus on energy efficiency and peak demand to reduce the costs of delivery to all customers.

Happy 60th birthday to the modern solar cell By Eric Wesoff



The pioneering engineers of the modern solar cell gathered in person and in spirit last week in Palo Alto, California, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of their invention. Little did they know the impact their discovery would be having on utilities in 2014. In a volatile, $100 billion, gigawatt-scale global solar industry thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing bigger every year, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a lot of time for looking in the rearview mirror â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take some time to do that here. John Perlin, author of Let It Shine: The 6,000-Year Story of Solar Energy and the eventâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moderator, explained in an email, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The silicon solar cell project got its start in early 1953 when Daryl Chapin began working on the problem of providing small amounts of intermittent power for remote, humid locations where dry cell batteries would degrade rapidly.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Chapin chose to experiment with solar cells made from selenium, a material that had yielded very low efďŹ ciencies. Perlin continues, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;At the same time, Gerald Pearson, an experimental physicist, was experimenting with a new silicon semiconductor material developed by Calvin Fuller, a chemist. Pearson found that the silicon was six times as efďŹ cient as was the selenium. [...] So began the Bell Solar Battery Project in the spring of 1953.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Sadly, Chapin, Fuller and Pearson are no longer with us. At the time, The New York Times hailed the invention â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;as the beginning of a new era, leading eventually to the realisation of one

Prince acknowledged the occasional contribution of good luck in an invention like this. He went on to lead the manufacturing of the solar cells used in the Vanguard space satellite in the 1950s and later headed the PV program under President Carter. Also on hand was Eugene Ralph, who designed the Vanguard satellite solar array, and helped light the fuse on the commercialisation of solar cells with a real application: spacecraft.

From Blue Ridge to Choice, Solco to Sunbeam, the heritage continues. A little-known fact about Murwillumbah is that it is one of Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pioneer towns when it comes to solar power. Blue Ridge Solar ďŹ rst started out in Nullum Street retailing solar to the public in 1984. This company soon grew into Choice Electric Company and fell under the national Solco umbrella several years later. Unfortunately last year Solco, the parent company, closed the solar shop in town after 30 years of trading. Local Uki-based Sunbeam Solar has worked with Choice and Solco since 1998 and will continue serving our clients in the Tweed and providing clients with superior products know-how and service. Our staff is the most knowledgeable in the industry bar none, with unmatched experience in both standalone and gridinteract solar systems. With such a long heritage to draw on Sunbeam Solar has a proven track record and is certainly not a ďŹ&#x201A;yby-night or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;two-minute noodleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; company.

Battery offers renewable energy breakthrough By Paul Karoff, SEAS Communications A team of Harvard scientists and engineers has demonstrated a new type of battery that could fundamentally transform the way electricity is stored on the grid, making power from renewable energy sources such as wind and sun far more economical and reliable. The novel battery technology is reported in a paper published in Nature. Under the OPEN 2012 program, the Harvard team received funding from the US Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) to develop the grid-scale battery, and plans to work with the agency to catalyse further technological and market breakthroughs over the next several years. The paper describes a metal-free flow battery that relies on the electrochemistry of naturally abundant, inexpensive, small organic (carbon-based) molecules called quinones, which are similar to molecules that store energy in plants and animals. The mismatch between the availability of intermittent wind or sunshine and the variable demand is the biggest obstacle to using renewable sources for a large fraction of our electricity. A cost-effective means of storing large amounts of electrical energy could solve this problem. The battery was designed, built, and tested in the laboratory of Michael J Aziz, the Gene and Tracy Sykes Professor of Materials and Energy Technologies at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS). Roy G Gordon, the Thomas Dudley Cabot Professor of Chemistry and Professor

Consequently they maintain peak the platinum used in fuel cells. discharge power for less than an hour before they are drained, and are therefore ill-suited to The new flow battery developed by the store intermittent renewables. Harvard team already performs as well as

vanadium flow batteries, with chemicals that are significantly less expensive, and with no precious-metal electrocatalyst. ‘The whole world of electricity storage has been using metal ions in various charge states, but there is a limited number that you can put into solution and use to store energy, and none of them can economically store massive amounts of renewable energy,’ Gordon said. ‘With organic molecules, we introduce a vast new set of possibilities. Some of them will be terrible and some will be really good. With these quinones we have the first ones that look really good.’ Quinones are abundant in crude oil as well as in green plants. The molecule the Harvard team used in its first quinone-based flow battery is almost identical to one found in rhubarb. The quinones are dissolved in water, which prevents them from catching fire. To back up a commercial wind turbine, a large storage tank would be needed, possibly located in a below-grade basement, said co-lead author Michael Marshak, a postdoctoral fellow at SEAS and in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology. With a whole field of turbines or a large solar farm, one could imagine a few very large storage tanks. The same technology could also have applications at the consumer level, Marshak said. ‘Imagine a device the size of a home heating-oil tank sitting in your basement. It would store a day’s worth of sunshine from the solar panels on the roof of your house, potentially providing enough to power your household from late afternoon, through the night, into the next morning, without burning any fossil fuels.’

The Byron Shire Echo April 29, 2014 25


Photovoltaic solar-panel windows could be next for your house A house window that doubles as a solar panel could be on the horizon, thanks to recent quantum-dot work by Los Alamos National Laboratory researchers in collaboration with scientists from University of Milano-Bicocca (UNIMIB), Italy. Their project demonstrates that superior light-emitting properties of quantum dots can be applied in solar energy by helping more efficiently harvest sunlight.

Light-harvesting antennas A luminescent solar concentrator (LSC) is a photon management device, representing a slab of transparent material that contains highly efficient emitters such as dye molecules or quantum dots. Sunlight absorbed in the slab is re-radiated at longer wavelengths and guided towards the slab edge equipped with a solar cell.

particles are still tiny – only about hundred angstroms across. For comparison, a human hair is about 500,000 angstroms wide. ‘A key to the success of this project was the use of a modified industrial method of cellcasting, we developed at UNIMIB Materials

‘Giant’ but still tiny, engineered dots

‘The key accomplishment is the demonstration of large-area luminescent solar concentrators that use a new generation of specially engineered quantum dots,’ said lead researcher Victor Klimov of the Center for Advanced Solar Photophysics (CASP) at Los Alamos. Quantum dots are ultra-small bits of semiconductor matter that can be synthesised with nearly atomic precision via modern methods of colloidal chemistry. Their emission colour can be tuned by simply varying their dimensions. Colour tunability is combined with high emission efficiencies approaching 100 per cent. These properties have recently become the basis of a new technology – quantum dot displays – employed, for example, in the newest generation of the Kindle Fire e-reader.

Brovelli, who worked at Los Alamos until 2012 and is now a faculty member at UNIMIB. Because of highly efficient, colour-tunable emission and solution processability, quantum dots are attractive materials for use in inexpensive, large-area LSCs. One challenge, however, is an overlap between emission and absorption bands in the dots, which leads to significant light losses owing to the dots re-absorbing some of the light they produce.

Klimov explained, ‘The LSC that serves as a light-harvesting antenna that concentrates solar radiation collected from a large area onto a much smaller solar cell, and this increases its power output.’ ‘LSCs are especially attractive because in addition to gains in efficiency, they can enable new interesting concepts such as photovoltaic windows that can transform house facades into large-area energy-generation units,’ said Sergio

To overcome this problem the Los Alamos and UNIMIB researchers have developed LSCs based on quantum dots with artificially induced large separation between emission and absorption bands (called a large Stokes shift). These ‘Stokes-shift’ engineered quantum dots represent cadmium selenide/cadmium sulfide (CdSe/CdS) structures in which light absorption is dominated by an ultra-thick outer shell of CdS, while emission occurs from the inner core of a narrower-gap CdSe. The separation of light-absorption and lightemission functions between the two different parts of the nanostructure results in a large spectral shift of emission with respect to absorption, which greatly reduces losses to re-absorption. To implement this concept, Los Alamos researchers created a series of thick-shell (socalled ‘giant’) CdSe/CdS quantum dots, which were incorporated by their Italian partners into large slabs (sized in tens of centimetres) of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). While being large by quantum dot standards, the active

Science Department,’ said Francesco Meinardi, professor of Physics at UNIMIB. Spectroscopic measurements indicated virtually no losses to re-absorption on distances of tens of centimetres. Further, tests using simulated solar radiation demonstrated high photon harvesting efficiencies of approximately 10 per cent per absorbed photon achievable in nearly transparent samples, perfectly suited for utilisation as photovoltaic windows. Despite their high transparency, the fabricated structures showed significant enhancement of solar flux with the concentration factor of more than four. These exciting results indicate that ‘Stokesshift-engineered’ quantum dots represent a promising materials platform. It may enable the creation of solution processable large-area LSCs with independently tunable emission and absorption spectra.

Pizza Volante SANDRO AND MEL FALZOLGHER ARE THE OWNERS AND CREATORS OF PIZZA VOLANTE BOUTIQUE MOBILE WOODFIRED PIZZERIA. How did you come to this area? Mel grew up in Byron Bay and met Sandro when he was visiting his extended family in Mullumbimby. Sandro’s uncle Zio Luciano came to the northern rivers in the 1950s to cut cane and settled in Mullumbimby, even owning the Empire Cafe where he made pizzas. Sandro and Mel have recently moved back to Byron Bay from Brisbane where, although they enjoyed building up their business, they missed a sense of community for themselves and their children, so they have moved back to be close to their families. Sandro was born in Fermo on the east coast of Italy. Learning the art of pizza-making from the top pizza chefs in the business is a serious undertaking in Italy, and Sandro spent most of his 20s working in and running small pizzerias in his region of Le Marche. After a trip home he was missing Italy and true pizza so he built a wood-fired pizza oven in the yard of his Brisbane home. How did the business get started? Mel says, ‘We had lots of backyard parties; friends would invite friends. Our invitations of 30 guests always ended up being up to 100. We realised that if we could cater for such fun parties in our yards so could everyone. Sandro spent three years designing and constructing our amazing pizza trailer. He imported a commercial Di Fiore pizza oven from his region in Italy; we have the largest traditional mobile pizza oven in Australia. We cater to functions from 40 to 250+ pizzas and at festivals we make and cook 1000s.’ What are your greatest influences? Mel says, ‘Sandro is passionate about traditional Italian cuisine. He follows the true Italian way of fresh tasty ingredients on his thin crispy sourdough bases using real mozzarella and proper tomato sugo. There’s not a piece of pineapple to be seen anywhere near his pizza!

‘We describe ourselves as boutique because of the time and attention to detail that we dedicate to our ingredients and the handmade sourdough bases. What areas do you cover? ‘We are mobile for the northern rivers of NSW, Gold Coast to Brisbane for weddings, birthdays, and corporate events, and we also do “popup pizzeria” nights at Federal Hall, Jasper Corner, Federal, every second Thursday of the month. Our next one is on Thursday 8 May. We will announce pop-up details including the special of the day on our Facebook page (look for the flying pizza logo).’ What’s your most popular dish? Our signature pizza is the funghi: porcini trifolati with creamy gorgonzola. Porcini trifolati is specific to Sandro’s region: slow-cooked porcini and field mushrooms create an intense flavour, complemented perfectly by Gorgonzola Dolce. What’s your favourite pizza? Sandro says, ‘The Pancetta: shaved pancetta and fresh rosemary crowned with crispy potato lace.’ What is the most rewarding thing you do? ‘Seeing guests excited by their bespoke pizzas! Seriously, we love seeing people devour our pizzas; hearing the conversations as they anticipate what flavour will be served next; party hosts enjoying time with their guests while we do everything. ‘But the most rewarding is producing 1000s of pizzas at a festival and finding that patrons made the effort to come back and thank us for their amazing pizza. ‘We personally serve the pizzas to your guests rather than putting them on a table for only the enthusiastic eaters. We also care for those with special dietary requirements (we use separate pizza cutters for meat, vegetarian, vegan, glutenfree etc to avoid cross contamination). ‘We bring Italy to you!’ PIZZA VOLANTE 0438 118 992 www.pizzavolante.com.au

TEMPORARY ROAD CLOSURES

CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST

Byron Bay Triathlon

Late Night Bus and Lighthouse Shuttle, Byron Bay

Saturday 10 May, 12noon – 3.00pm

Council is looking at the potential of operating a late night bus and Lighthouse shuttle bus service. The two services remain subject to approvals, for example NSW Transport approval and funding. At this time, Council is calling for expressions of interest from operators interested in such services.

Under the provisions of the Roads Act 1993, Council (Resolution 13-662) has endorsed the annual Byron Bay Triathlon to occur on Saturday 10 May 2014. Delays can be expected and Police and traffic detours will be in operation. The following road closures will be implemented from 12noon onwards and removed by 3.00pm (or later if needed): a) Bay Street, between Fletcher Street and Middleton Street b) Middleton Street, between Bay Street and Marvell Street c) Marvell Street, between Middleton Street and Tennyson Street d) Tennyson Street, between Marvell Street and Browning Street e) Bangalow Road, between Browning Street and Broken Head Road f) Broken Head Road, from Bangalow Road to the Ballina LGA boundary g) Lawson Street, between Middleton Street and Massinger Street Detour around and passage through the road closure will be available at select times under direction of traffic control and escort only, including Police. Signage will be erected prior to the event and residents adjacent to the route will be advised via a direct mail box drop. In addition, advertising in the local newspapers, including maps, will occur in the two weeks leading into the event. Details are also available from the event website: www.byronbaytri.com.au.

The following report has now been added to the list of reports being presented to Council.

Any person is entitled to make a submission with respect to the granting of the temporary closures. Written submissions are to be endorsed ‘Road Closure – Byron Bay Triathlon’ and should be addressed to the General Manager, Byron Shire Council, via either PO Box 219, Mullumbimby 2482 or submissions@byron.nsw.gov. au.

For assistance with this please call Council’s Records Coordinator on 02 6626 7113.

Following the positive feedback received about the Late Night Bus and Park and Ride trial in Byron Bay over the 2013/14 peak summer season, Council is investigating ways to offer the late night service on an annual basis and trial a Lighthouse shuttle service. Council has lodged a request with Transport for NSW for an exemption to the Passenger Transport Act 1990 and Passenger Transport Regulation 2007 from the requirement to hold a contract with Transport NSW to enable the bus operator to charge passengers a ticket price. If the request is successful, the exemption will apply to an accredited bus and coach operator to provide the service. We are therefore, calling for expressions of interest from accredited bus and coach operators that may be interested in offering the above services on an annual basis. Further information and details of how the services operated in the 2013/14 summer season are available from the staff contact below. Please note, no project funding is currently available and submission of this expression of interest may not lead to any further action on this matter. If the exemption described above is provided, details of the service provision are to be negotiated with Council. An expression of interest form is available on Council’s website at www.byron.nsw.gov.au/expressionsofinterest. Submissions should be made on this form in writing and addressed to the General Manager, Byron Shire Council, PO Box 219 Mullumbimby 2482 or sent by email to submissions@byron.nsw.gov.au. Emailed submissions to this address only will be acknowledged. Submissions close: 4.00pm Friday 16 May 2014 Enquiries: Joanne McMurtry 02 6626 7316 Please note: The canvassing of Councillors or Council staff in relation to this tender will automatically result in disqualification of offending tenderers.

Giants two wins from three Rollers host biggest bash ever John Campbell

After being done at the death by Northern United in Round One of the NRRRL and registering an encouraging win over Marist Brothers at their next start, the Mullumbimby Giants returned to Les Donnelly Field on Sunday for their first home game of the season. Following a couple of lean years there was a whisper that, under new coach Shane Diehm, the Blue-and-Golds were primed for a serious tilt at the title, meaning that a victory over the Evans Head Bombers was essential to consolidate the boys’ growing confidence. When winger Troy McArthur sprinted down the western sideline and placed the ball under the black dot, it was mission accomplished for the Giants to the tune of 28–6. But it didn’t come quite as easily as the final scoreline might suggest. Earlier, the reggies had towelled-up the visitors by 32–0 in warm and steamy

conditions, but as the Agraders appeared from the sheds there were dirty black storm clouds rolling in from the south and with them a sharp drop in temperature. Suddenly it felt like winter – like real football weather. Mullum kicked off into a chilly southerly and swarmed over their opponents with high energy but, as is so often the case, penalties awarded to Evans Head relieved whatever pressure the Giants might have been able to build. Instead it was the Bombers who established a territorial advantage – not that they ever looked likely to breach Mullum’s well-organised and totally committed defensive wall. This was a pleasing and constant feature of the Giants’ play, that they were at all times composed, organised and quick to restore their shape if ever it were lost. At last the ref blew in favour of the Giants and in the ensuing set stocky Jack Govett, who had come off the bench, barrelled over and,

with Louis Earl’s conversion, Mullum was ahead 6–0. Centre and captain Tim Abbott put his winger Darcy Earl in not long later and when tall five-eighth handled twice before Earl got another there was a whiff that, at 14–0 at the break, the floodgates might have opened. To the Bombers’ credit, however, they never turned it up. The second forty was contested in nasty spitting rain and it was the visitors who scored first when their winger gathered a nicely placed chip to his corner. Trailing only 14–6, they were back in it, but a try to Robbie ‘Crazy’ Goodacre restored the Giants’ lead to twelve and with seven minutes to go there was a bit of a harmless stink to get the mob’s blood bubbling. The young bull Govett, ‘Sunshine’ Jay Hampson and forward leader Dan Molenaar all handled in a surge that resulted in a try full-back for Luke Baker, to whom the Bombers had been kicking high most of the arvo.

A penalty gave Thistles a 3–1 lead that they defended solidly through the remaining 15 minutes. Another tough final, another bridesmaid finish for the Rams and a taste of what looks like being the battle for this year’s Premiership honours. The next round of the regular season has the Rams facing up to another Lismore rival, Richmond Rovers, at home on May 3. Reserves take to the pitch at 1pm and the prems at 3pm.

This weekend Byron’s derby team The Bay Rollers will host the biggest roller derby event that has ever taken place in the northern rivers.  Featuring eight teams from Port Macquarie to Tweed Heads, roller derby will be played all weekend at the Byron Sports Complex. This is the culmination of the 2014 North Coast Derby Coalition, a round robin for north coast teams. For the first time, men’s derby has been added to the comp. Derby will be played all day Saturday and Sunday from 9am. For more info visit: bayrollers.com.

Byron finds sharp end of stick Peter Griffin

Byron Bay were beaten 38–17 at home by Lismore in the third round of Far North Coast Rugby on Saturday. Byron is still a work in progress under new coach Paul Jeffery but if anything the team should be emboldened by their performance against the champions. The visitors took a deserved but hardly decisive 14–10 advantage to halftime. Lismore’s backline twice opened up Byron’s defence from long-range counterattacking raids but the Bay replied in kind with a rare try to back-rower Matt Larsson. Impressive newcomer Romey Vassell proved too clever on his feet for the opposing centre pair and laid on the try for the popular former Lismore man. Lismore moved to 19–10 after the break but momentum shifted when the Byron forwards began to dominate their highly rated opposition. The usual suspects Craig Wallace, Ryan Betts,

Rob Lynch and Larsson were all tormenting the Lismore forwards as the sweat from Anzac Day celebrations rose like a heat haze around the ground. The home team now had all the territory and possession but the Bay’s still disjointed attack could not deliver the decisive play. Lismore may not look as polished as last season but the desire of the champions was evident. They clawed their way downfield and took the game from Byron in bizarre circumstances. The incendiary Wallace was hit late by a ‘third man in’ Lismore forward after a scuffle had broken out on the grandstand touchline. The linesman immediately raised his flag as Lismore swept left to set up a try. The officials conferred and stunned the crowd by awarding the try and producing a yellow card to Byron’s Matt Larsson who could not have been further from the incident had he been on the Mir spacestation. After the incident players

on both sides lost focus and composure and three tries were scored in quick succession in a spiteful end to the contest. Players from both teams were yellow carded as a nervous referee clutched for control of the match. Tom Sandstrom scored for Byron after the excellent James Hawley had swooped on a loose ball. The Bay’s Hawley, Betts and Wallace were all outstanding but the revelation was Byron’s new front-rower Aaaron Shakeshoff. The power-packed import gave Byron’s set piece a massive boost and his bursts close to the ruck delighted the Byron faithful. He is sure to be a crowd favourite. Byron return to the Rec fields this Saturday against the disappointing Southern Cross University. A comfortable win is expected but more importantly the third game of the campaign will add further cohesion to the spirit and passion always evident in Byron Bay Rugby. Go the Bay!

Five common financial traps landlords need to avoid If you are the proud owner of an investment property, chances are you have worked hard for it. As a landlord, understanding how to protect yourself from common financial pitfalls is one of the key tools to investing with confidence, according to landlord insurance provider Terri Scheer Insurance. Terri Scheer Insurance executive manager, Carolyn Parrella, explains five common mistakes and how landlords can avoid them:

1. Setting the rent too low or too high â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Before purchasing an investment property, carry out extensive research to help determine an appropriate rental price,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ms Parella said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Setting the rent too high may result in limited interest from prospective tenants, leaving you out of pocket if the property remains empty for an extended period of time. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;However, setting the rent too low may place you under financial pressure, limit your rental income and has the potential to attract unsuitable tenants. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Look on real estate websites and through newspaper classifieds to find listings with similar features to your property, as this will give you a guide on the rental market in that area. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If you appoint a property manager, they should be able to provide you with information on comparable properties and advise an appropriate rent for your own investment.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

2. Failing to monitor arrears

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If a tenant falls behind in their rent, it can be a very long and costly process to resolve and could leave you considerably out of pocket,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ms Parrella said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Diarise the dates that your tenantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rental payments are due and check your bank account on those days. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If your tenant doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay on the due date, monitor your bank account on a daily basis. If they fall into arrears a breach notice should be sent for non-payment of rent. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The number of days in rental arrears before a termination notice can be sent, and the time between presenting the notice and requesting vacation varies around Australia, so it is important to be familiar with your local tenancy laws. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Regularly monitoring arrears and issuing tenants with appropriate notices promptly may help

The Nats are unlikely to find a candidate who holds the affection of his electorate as well as Donald Loftus Page when he resigns in March next year and the state election begins. Mr Page comes from one of Australia’s longest-serving political dynasties: Don’s 26 years in office are topped by his granddad Earle Christmas Grafton Page’s 41 years, including three weeks as prime minister. We can look to the Anthony family from the Tweed for a competitive record: Larry junior served eight years, his father Doug (who inspired the naming of the Doug Anthony Allstars) 27 years, and his father Larry

We suspect Don’s longevity in office is due not only to his affability but also to his chameleon nature, his ability to adapt to his political and ethical surroundings of the moment. Don has been often asked to go independent, and in his last few months he could decide to go completely feral, but we doubt his ability/desire to escape from family traditions.

Don’s time as minister for the north coast is likely to be regarded as a pleasant idyll now that Andrew Stoner has taken up the role. Along with energy minister Anthony Roberts, Stoner is likely to push the interests of the CSG industry over the concerns of local residents.
