Worth taking a long hard look at that list. Doesn't even account for other groups like reptiles, amphibians and birds.

The Bramble Cay melomys joins a long list of Australian mammals made extinct through colonial-settler activity (ongoing), now accelerated/exacerbated by climate change. We kill what we love, what we could've loved.

Australia has the highest extinction rate post-colonisation, according to ACF: 29 mammals, three only recently. We're going to lose more. And it fucking sucks.

I don't know how put it on the global consciousness, because the extinction of the Bramble Cay melomys due to climate change has been known for a while. I think it's the heart that he puts in.

"I have no doubt that this is what makes me a libertarian. I will not do as I'm told." It's a sophisticated ideology, sure.

The lesson here is: Beware the laws of macroeconomics. They don't care whether you're socialist, capitalist, or whatever. If you do things like peg your currency too high and run up external debt, macroeconomics will still crush you like bug. (end)

Not sure it is incompetence and not networks of favour and entitlement always having been standard operating procedure between politics and business. I guess the later breeds incompetence, too.

was there ever a time when politicians would just be naturally concerned with things that *do not look good*? I mean, so much of politics is ~ perception ~
