Mining approval angers residents
Residents of Bacchus Marsh north-west of Melbourne say the State Government approved a plan to dig 15 boreholes to study brown coal deposits without informing them.
No New Coal Rally June 28 at Parliament House
An unique combination of politicians, concerned grandmothers, mining magnates and environmental activists met on Thursday, June 28 at 12:30pm on the steps of Parliament House. Speakers were opposing new coal projects, including a brown coal export industry, which would triple Victoria's contribution to greenhouse gas pollution. The star of the event was Twiggy Palmcock, representing "the forgotten voices of mining magnates". He argued that all coal is good coal, and offered to dig coal mines in a bowl shape for the "Greenie farmers from Bacchus Marsh". Mr Palmcock stated that "The real people who are suffering are honest toiling billionaires like me. These mining and carbon taxes are just tearing mining billionaire families apart." Other (less satirical) speakers included Mr Don Nardella, MP for Melton, who was supporting the people of Bacchus March for "doing it really tough" in fighting Mantle Mining whose shares have gone "through the roof" because they have found coal. One speaker, Katie, a resident of Bacchus Marsh, told the 200+ person crowd that "New coal in Victoria is unsustainable and unethical." Environmental activist groups such as Quit Coal, Friends of the Earth, Environment Victoria, and Greenpeace staged the event. The newest co-sponsor was a group of concerned citizens from No New Coal Bacchus Marsh, "I am stepping outside of my comfort zone by being here", stated wheat and barley farmer Kate Tubbs, "I've just been looking into the health issues involved with coal dust and it's horrific." Environment Victoria Campaign Director Mark Wakeham was quick to point out the irony that Energy technology company HRL has frozen plans for a $1.2 billion coal gasification plant at Morwell just after the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) decided HRL could build the plant to its preferred 600 megawatt capacity. The VCAT ruling reversed a 300MW restriction by the Environment Protection Authority, but insisted that the federal government must first buy out and close an old station in exchange. HRL's project documents explain that the hybrid plant -- the first of its type in Australia at a commercial scale -- would run on synthetic gas derived from brown coal using new technology. The HRL design first dries out the brown coal, then gasifies it before mixing it with piped-in natural gas. Its greenhouse gas emissions would be 30 percent less than existing brown coal-fired power stations in Victoria's Latrobe Valley, about the same as a modern black coal plant or open-cycle gas-fired station. The Federal and State governments has set up partial funding of HRL's proposed new coal power station. The total of $150 million will support HRL in using experimental technology to dry and export brown coal. A Sydney Morning Herald article quotes Federal Resources and Energy Minister Martin Ferguson stating the government's funding agreement with the company would stand until the end of June. That article also explains that Paul Welfare, general manager with HRL subsidiary Dual Gas, said the tribunal judgment "effectively put the future of the project in the hands of the Australian government...It is unclear what it means for the future of Victoria's Latrobe Valley." In 2011 Australia's big four banks all announced that they were not involved in HRL's project. In October 2011 a number of international banks declared that they too would not finance the proposed power station, with HSBC indicating that HRL was too polluting for them to invest in. No New Coal rally organiser made the point of the rally clear: "We're calling on Bacchus Marsh to be protected from coal mining, we're calling on Gippsland and the rest of our state to be protected from coal seam gas." Funding for the project is not supported by Victorians -- A recent Newspoll survey in Victoria found that two-thirds of Victorian supported reallocating the $100 million earmarked for the HRL power station to support renewable energy. The rally ended at 1:30 with a rather catchy chat: "Coal, don't dig it, leave it in the ground it's time to get with it." Only time will tell if the Baillieu government will join in the growing chorus.

Canary in the Coal Mine; Gauging Danger by Observing Nature
The old canary in the coal mine term came from the miners who would bring a bird down with them to insure that they didn't die from gases. Many know this of course... but also, the frogs in the local area can tell you a lot about the level of pollution, and also the magnetic fields. If we observe the animals, we can at least get a general idea of the health of our environment. Gives ya something to look out for anyway. So we aren't all like... "SHIT MAN...I'M GONNA DIE!!!" lol... Take care-

FAQ Research Interview with Oscar.mov
FAQ Research interviewed Oscar on a property adjoining his at the Tara Estate. The "Blocks" outside Tara are 12 hectare residential properties, many mostly uncleared bush. Most "Blockies" have chosen to live on the Estate for lifestyle reasons, but their retreat is now under pressure from Coal Seam Gas extraction, and their outlook grim. Oscar speaks movingly about the issue in this video. We found Oscar to be a thoughtful and caring individual, and we very much appreciated his taking the time to talk with us. This video is part of the FAQ Research/Crikey collaboration, Coal Seam Gas: Behind the Seams.

Leonardite is a soft waxy, black or brown, shiny, vitreous mineraloid that is easily soluble in alkaline solutions. It is an oxidation product of lignite, associated with near-surface mining. It is a rich source of humic acid and is used as a soil conditioner, as a stabilizer for ion-exchange resins in water treatment, in the remediation of polluted environments and as a drilling additive. It was named after A. G. Leonard, first director of the North Dakota Geological Survey, in recognition of his work on these deposits. This video is targeted to blind users.

The Rainbow Audiobook by D. H. Lawrence | Audiobook with subtitles  | Part 2
Briefly appearing in 1915, then banned and taken out of circulation for its adult treatment of sexuality, Lawrence's visionary novel The Rainbow attempts to situate the lives of three generations of the Brangwen family within the continuous social change marking the Victorian transformation of Britain. Farmer Tom and his Polish wife Lydia, whose peaceful rural existence re-enacts the potent myths of Genesis; artisan Will and the matriarch Anna, who go to live among the industrial and mining communities so rapidly sprung up around Nottingham; finally the restless Ursula who, moving to the city, seeks sexual and emotional fulfilment with the Polish-descended Skrebensky - the three couples are not merely illustrative of the changing times, but allow the author to study in depth the conflict between the outer 'social' selves of those individuals and what he curiously calls the 'inhuman' essential being, the 'is-ness' at the core of their psychical life. Lawrence evokes this dark, unconscious 'vital core' through a language of breathtaking poetic beauty; a rhythmic incantatory prose which listeners to this recording will find perfectly rendered by Tony Foster, in all its nuances. Like Paul Morel, the hero of the earlier Sons and Lovers, Ursula survives her losses to face a future of uncertain but radiant hope: "She saw in the rainbow the earth's new architecture, the old, brittle corruption of houses and factories swept away, the world built up in a living fabric of Truth, fitting to the over-arching heaven."
