Me quoted in Fairfax papers on tax haven use
Me quoted by Georgia Wilkins in The Age (and other Fairfax publications) today. John Passant, from the school of political science and international relations, at the Australian National University, said the trend noted by Computershare was further evidence multinationals did not take global regulators seriously. ”US companies are doing this on the hard-nosed basis that any [regulatory] changes that will be made won’t have an impact on their ability to avoid tax,” he said. ”They think it is going to take a long time for the G20 to take action, or that they are just all talk.” (1)

Jonathan Moylan, stunts, the working class and fighting climate change

Stunts like Moylan’s will draw attention to the issues at least momentarily and I defend his actions. But to really address climate change, to stop the mining of fossil fuels and to move rapidly to a totally renewable energy society requires the working class entering on to the stage of history and overthrowing the impediment to real change – capitalism. The working class has to be our focus for fundamental change.

Socialism or global warming barbarism?

The urgency is great. Capitalism cannot cure itself. It is driven by its internal logic to destroy the planet in the search for profit and the reinvestment of any surplus value we create. The choice is becoming starker and starker. It is either socialism with democracy, planning and satisfying human need leading to a secure and safe environment or the continuation of capitalism and the descent into global warming barbarism.

Using data collected over the last sixty to one hundred years in Australia the report concludes unequivocally that […]

A dagger in the heart of climate change scepticism?

Mike Steketee has stabbed the flat line climate change sceptics in the heart with his lucid and readable analysis in last Saturday’s Australian of climate figures and patterns since records began in 1850. (‘Skeptics skip the long view’ The Weekend Australian, January 3-4 Inquirer, p 16). His analysis shows there has been, in his words,  […]
