Since Napoleon, the French civil code has contained rights to property and related right to compensation if the State should have a legal reason to interfere with it. Australia would be much better off with the Napoleonic civil code and its land-use planning and inheritance provisions than with what...

Peter Spencer has been presented in the media as if he is wanting to clear his land, as in as in "Peter Spencer has had most of his land (Shannons Flats in NSW, near Canberra) locked up by native vegetation laws." This won't get him sympathy from the wider public. There is nothing in there...

names of climate change refugees

Colin, I sense some sarcasm in this post and a recent one about yaorts in Frankston. It is really not necessary. Please tell me what the problem is in a straightforward way. Is it to do with the concept of climate change or causes of climate change? Is it to do with forestry? Or something else. With...

Slavery

Thanks Shirley. Yes, it's frightening.
And people have known about this kind of slavery since time immemorial.
Did you know that relocalisation is really what 'anarchism' is about?
All these movements to take back power get demonised, one after another.

NSF in central Australian rangelands?

What is Peter Andrews' take on flat, degraded arid rangelands in places like Charleville and Longreach in Queensland? I was talking to someone in the area who was saying how in principle NSF would work, but he seemed to be implying that the problems of slow-flowing irregular rivers, aridity, irregul...

Big agribusiness and water - crucial enquiry April 14 - batt

Please pass on. Our current farmers, especially irrigators, may have bad practices, but big agribusiness gives me the chills and the government/corporate support for the new pipeline is particularly scary.

Deforestation drys continents - new theory explains how

Whilst many people have been aware (but have mostly been ignored) that vegetation, especially forests, create rain, and whilst desertification has been linked to deforestation historically many times, there is a new and robust theory to explain how this may happen.
