Meeting today, Saturday 8 November: How Big For Sydney

At 2pm at the Glebe Town Hall, listen to guest speakers Jack Mundey, Jill Green of STEP, Tony Recsei of Save Our Suburbs & William Bourke of the Sustainable Population Party. They will ask:

  • What are the risks associated with adding another 3.5 million people to Sydney?
  • Why are sprawl and high density presented as the only options?
  • Are extreme levels of housing unaffordability placing an unfair burden on the City's young?
  • What will be the impacts upon our surrounding native flora and fauna? ...

Come along and ask your own questions.

Earth Hour not a token gesture

One's first impression of Earth Hour is that it is a noble but token gesture to try to get the community to jointly recognise the need for global sustainability. The actual impact of turning power off for one hour on a weekend will do squat to reduce the world's greenhouse gas emissions. The physical effect is akin to turning off one light globe while China and the US burn millions of tonnes of CO2 - not even a speck in the universe.
