Clap

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!
In reference to every post in the Trump thread ... "There may have been a tiny bit of license taken there" ... Ok, Thanks for the "heads up" PT!

Its raining here heavy enough to douse fires.   There is only one slow moving fire in our vicinity but not sure the rain has reached it yet.  Hope so as its in an area they havnt been able to get into for weeks.
Can anyone tell me how Adaminaby has fared in the fire please ?

I am no climate scientist nor a Murdoch voodoo science opinion hack but I think the drought broke here last night. Should put out our 10 week old bush-fire. Thumbs Up
