    Mr Morrison must be aware that the US pulled out of an international agreement on constraints of Nuclear developments that Iran was in full compliance with. The US then imposed sanctions on Iran which has now become A TOTAL financial blockade. I do not think the people of Australia will allow any participation with the US and its threatened genocidal war mongering.against Iran. We do not all agree with the lack of freedom in IRAN, however we have no right to attack, kill and maim the people of Iran and destroy their homes and infrastructure. The USA. Israel and Saudi Arabia must refrain from any retaliation for unproven claims that Iran attacked the Saudi Refinery which may have even been a false flag given that the US has had plans to invade Iran for years as well as Israel. And what would be the result? Millions of men, women and children will be murderered plus many American soldiers will end up in bodybags. So Mr Morrison must be reminded of the thousands of Australians killed in Vietnam. To what end as we are not forgiven for murdering Vietnamese soldiers and rice farmers.(and never will be.) As the Vietnam war was inhumane folly created by a false flag event NO, all the way with warmongering USA MR MORRISON. YOU DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO TELL GOD TO BLESS AMERICA. A GOOD STATESMAN SHOULD SHOW RESTRAINT as We are a separate sovereign state from the US and not a dependant

    Why are you interviewing the Rhodes Scholar Angus Taylor in some pathetic attempting to get to the truth about the government's stance on anthropogenic climate change? The government has no position; it only follows orders. You won't get any honest answers from this Washington sycophant; you might as well be asking the same questions of Darren Woods of Exxon Mobil or the libertarian Charles Koch of Koch Industries. By exposing your viewers to such a programmed deceptive response by this plutocratic minion, do you think you may be insulting the intelligence of your audience?

    So sad to see the rot at Insiders has continued. Fran is a massive establishment stooge that always ultimately let's the LNP get past when it *matters*...ie. before a big election for example. Going hard (somewhat) now is far too little too late I'm afraid. This guy is a freaking criminal and a corrupt individual who has a documented history of increasing his own self enrichment, and for his relatives & mates. We have to wake up to these kind of sellouts. So sad.

    Why is this the responsibilty of the Fed to legislate? They are not road legal, and cannot be driven legally on national roads. This is clearly a states issue at the most even then, they are not used in public areas and are confined to private and comercial use. Let the private sector look after itself. We dont need government regulation on this matter.

    "We are doing what we can, It needs to be a worldwide effort." Mate I can come up with 4 simple solutions on the spot. 1. 3% new Internal Combustion Engine car tax to pay off a 25% electric car subsidy. That'll boost electric car usage, reduce our fossil fuel dependency, increase road safety, fund new tech and boost Australian mines. 2. Ban fossil fuel imports for energy consumption. That'll force us to use either Australian coal and gas boosting those industries or boost the amount of renewables in Aus. That'll heavily reduce power prices, make us more independent, boost tech research and reduce our fossil fuel dependency. 3. Massive Reforestation projects. Create the goal to have as many trees as we did in the year 2000. That'll increase soil quality, biodiversity, pollution, make cities and towns cooler, provide thousands of jobs and heavily reduce our CO2 output. 4. Create a carbon trading scheme. Do what businesses have been asking for for years. Reward them for reducing emissions and penalize them for using more. Then allow them to trade carbon emissions from one year to the next so it doesn't damage them. It's really not that difficult to reduce emissions. The problem is, the Liberals don't care.

    Korea KBS reported that the Tanzania Central Bank issued a commemorative coin for Dokdo island (Takeshima in Japanese name). However, the central bank of Tanzania officially denied it on September 18 with the expression “malicious”. In Korea, such malicious propaganda is rampant and makes people with weak information believe. So you can guess how credible is the basis of Koreans criticism of Japan.

    These kids are seeing the change in climate just as much as the adults. We have seen a huge change over the years, we adults should be more active. You could set your watch in Brisbane in the 70's to the early 90's for the Nov/Dec storms unrolling across the skyline like a carpet. We are lucky to see rain now a days throughout that time. The baby boomers have had such a great time and the generations before that you have burnt away the future of your children for cheap gains. Cheap oil and energy, free education (tertiary included) and free health care (no need for private), full time jobs with sick leave and holiday leave. How lucky is one to find a full time job with such benifits in todays work force? The people we vote into place are only interested in themselves and their friends, no the constituents. How many out there own shares in the financial market. Does corporate tax cuts help you out at all? Sure the baby boomers and generation before have a house or two, a couple of grand in shares here and there perhaps. Unfortunately that generation is facing the end. The younger generations are coming to the fore and the majority of us are hard done by, suffering, angry and truly want a change. The disparity of wealth is in our face every day. Seeing Bentley, Chrysler, BMW, Mercedes, Ferrai's and Porsche vehicles in our face every day, the street I live in is majority low income residence where your lucky to have a clean street once a week, yet 2 streets over its immaculate (and terrace/houses retail at $1.5 million each). We face two worlds each day, one for the rich, the other for the workers/poor. As long as there's disparity of wealth and a sense of favouritism there will never be freedom.

The system teaches them to follow rules, regardless of logic, and to stay inside the box. Creative solutions will be the planet’s salvation, provided it is already not too late. Kid’s need to think outside the box and be proactive. Kudos to those who have the foresight and determination to change our world in a positive way.

    Trump did so well he shook Australia down for a $150 million dollar boost to the NASA budget each year. Australia barely has 23 million people in the whole country.

    • Justin M
      Justin M 24 minutes ago

      Barely 23 million, try almost 25.5. It's $150 million over 5 years not every year. That is NOT a huge chunk of the budget even if it was a per year figure. We are spending around 190 BILLION this year on welfare. In short, that's around 0.07% of our welfare budget alone (based on $150 million annually.) You fail to mention that sum allows Australian businesses and scientists to be involved in NASA programs. You could argue that that's "pay to play" and you would be right, but that's part of the game. Also, the mainstream media here has been reporting on it.
