Andrew Forrest owns a large portion of Fortescue Metals Group Ltd (FMG) is an iron ore production and exploration company with assets located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

Surely not a person who has made all his money by extracting dreadful minerals from the ground ?

Thankfully if he had not extracted minerals that donation would not have been made.

What do the Greens think about that ?


Bob, what a fantastic donation from twiggy and he certainly didn’t need to do it but don’t forget they are our minerals that have made him rich

Policies of the UEA are often front of mind for me

I gave $100, which is less than 3.75 % of one per cent of my worth, although I do give to other charities throughout the year.

WA iron ore magnate Andrew Forrest has moved to clarify his stance on climate change after pointing at arson as a contributor to this summer's devastating fire season.

In Perth on Thursday, Mr Forrest and wife Nicola announced their philanthropic arm, the Minderoo Foundation, would donate $70 million to...

In a statement issued later in the day, Mr Forrest said he "unequivocally" believed climate change was real and he accepted the warming of our planet was a "primary cause of the catastrophic events".

Amazing story of the very recognizable interpreter from the RFS 

In the middle of Australia's #bushfire crisis, some faces have become familiar. One of those, standing to the right of the Commissioner is #Auslan interpreter Sean Sweeney. https://ab.co/35JTrrq

I love that guy, he's the best!Clap

Some of those interpreters are mesmerising - I sometimes find myself watching the expressions on their faces, and not listening to what's being said!

Can anyone tell me how Adaminaby has fared in the fire please ?

RRRREEEEEEE!!! Big smile

It's OK aa ... history tells us that the bush will regenerate, the feed will grow back, we will have a few good seasons, the animals will be in plague proportions and we will need to cull them again!Big smile

Jeez Doc, get with the program.
A bit of rain, nor a cloudy day doesn’t mean the climates not changing.

Even Scotty from marketing admits it’s happening.
Only problem, is the dope thinks the only action we should take is not to mitigate, but to adapt.

Scotty should f**ck off back to Hawaii......

Climate

What is climate?

Climate is the average measurements of temperature, wind, humidity, snow, and rain in a place over the course of years. Climate is like the weather, but over a long time.

Climate vs. Weather

Climate is different than weather. Weather is changes in the atmosphere that occur on a daily basis. The weather we experience today could be completely different than the weather we have tomorrow.

Climate is a pattern of weather that occurs over a long time such as years and centuries. For example, the climate in an area could be dry in that it rarely rains there. However, on days when it does rain, the weather is rainy for that day. The climate doesn't change, it's still a dry climate.

Our climate, and our weather, changed today.  Thumbs Up Not over time but instantly.
The climate went from being hot and dry for ages, to flogging down rain and hail.
The weather went from 36 and humid to 27 and cool.
