This farm is absolutely amazing. They have 10,000 fish and 500 yards of compost and produce 1 MILLION pounds of Food per year. This has to be the way of the future if we are going to feed the population of Earth as we grow.
The beauty about this type of system is that it could also be utilized on marginal land as well.

I have included some more video of the Rainforest on our property, It’s a small snippet only.
Please allow a little indulgence as all I am trying to show is that it’s this sort of natural beauty that is being destroyed in many parts of the world where rainforest is not protected.
This type of rainforest is home to many birds and animals and needs to be protected.
Please relax for 2 and a half minutes and enjoy the footage. More footage to come in the future.

Finning is thinning the world’s shark population at an alarming rate.
Between 70 and 100 Million sharks are killed every year, most of which end up in China, where affluent Chinese can eat “Bloody Soup”.
As the video eludes, this destruction of Shark numbers will have a catastrophic effect on the oceanic ecology.

The Australian Lyrebird would have to be one of the most amazing animals on Earth. It can mimic virtually anything it hears. So don’t be fooled if you are in the bush and hear a pack of wild dogs coming toward you, it might just be a lyrebird, OR it may be a pack of dogs, who knows you had better get out of there anyway, just in case.

This video gives us a small insight into some of the beautiful and the not so beautiful things in our world. I feel the same way as the creator of the video. On one hand I am sad when I see the destruction and total disregard for our Planet and on the other hand I am angry at the greed and callousness that causes the problems that we have in many parts of our wonderful World.
Big business leaders and politicians that contribute to the destruction of our habitats and environment need to stop their behaviour or be held accountable. Our planet can only take so much abuse. Those of us who care need to ensure that we act as protectors.

So there you have it, blue hats cause climate change, now what are we going to do about it?. Seriously, what is really scary is the number of people who still deny that climate change is real and who think that they can continue to keep their heads in the sand. Well I would like to challenge anyone and everyone to start conserving power, walk instead of drive where possible, spread the word to your friends and most of all let your local politicians know that you are not prepared to take inaction anymore. We must act and we must act now.

Our planet has a finite number of animals and plants. If we keep going the way we are, eventually there will be nothing left.
There is only so much oil, only so much coal, only so much uranium. And yet there is abundant sunlight (at least for another few billion years) and by that time we could have transferred us all to another solar system.
Why is it that Australia especially is not going all out to replace the fossil fuel power stations with Solar, Wind, Geothermal and Tidal/Wave power generation. MONEY, that’s why, big business are just too greedy.
Any politicians reading this please wake up and stop the senseless destruction of the only planet that we currently know we can exist on.
Any big business people reading this please take your oportunity to jump on the green bandwagon as that is where your future business will have to operate.
Any other people reading this post, please speak up and let your local member of parliament know how you feel and that you will not except anything other than total respect for our environment.

Also known as the sea wasp or marine stinger.
Regarded as one of the most dangerous of marine animals. The Box Jellyfish floats around almost invisible in the waters of Northern Australia; along side the ‘Crocs’, between October to April.
The venom present in the tentacles; which in some cases are almost 3 meters long, is extremely toxic and my result in cardio-respiratory dysfunction with in a just a few minutes.

The poison of the Blue Ring Octopus, is said to be 10,000 times more potent than cyanide… and there is no known antidote. The bite can lead to paralysis, respiratory arrest and finally death if artificial respiration and heart massage is not carried out on the victim and maintained till the toxin washes out of their system.
This little; not much bigger than a golf ball, somewhat attractive, innocent looking creature can be found widely from Australia to Japan, it’s found in rock pools and as deep as 20m. The fact that it’s attractive and found in rock pools, means that kids should be taught about it, since it’s just the sort of thing that they would be attracted to if not warned.

The thought that occurred to me whilst watching this clip was. Is it effecting animals? If it is, then neurosis is unlikely to be the cause. If it’s not effecting then, then either it’s all bullshit or there is a reason why it’s not effecting animals… I’d be checking out the animals.
As for our doctors, most are little more than drug pushers with unwarranted superiority complexes… many doctors drink too much, they smoke, they take recreational drugs and are addicted to prescription drugs, they get into troubles with gambling debts, cheat on their partners, and they kill more than 20,000 patients a year in Australia through their incompetence (and a similar percentage of patients apparently in the US and probably elsewhere), doctors also commit suicide and murder, in short they are human, not gods.

This is the last thing we need, dinosaur tracks next to what looks like human foot prints; all be it 2 foot long,… now those ‘Intelligent’ Design nutters will be trotting out their dinosaur saddles again. As one of my favorite shows ‘Monkey Madness’ narrator said. “Heaven must love fools since it made so many of us.”
On a more serious note, there are very many artifacts which challenge conventional ‘wisdom’, that in it’s self is no problem for me, but it would be great to one day know the truth about mankind. As for a human with two foot long feet, that would make them 13 or 14 feet high (4m); sticking with the convention of that ruler next to that 2 foot long foot.
